This might sound like an expensive one but throwing a dinner party is a great way to enjoy socialising without spending lots of money, as long as you add a fun twist. Get together with a group of friends and agree to do a ‘Come Dine with Me’ style week in which you take turns to cook for one another, within an agreed budget. The lower the budget, the bigger the challenge! And it means that you only have to cook once; you can enjoy the fruits of your friends’ labours on all of the other days!

  1. Phone a psychic

A psychic reading is a fun way to spend an evening and it can reveal a lot about your past, present and future too! Get a group of friends round and contact a psychic by phone at to see what your future has in store for you, or you could have a go at tarot reading and give yourselves psychic readings for an even cheaper night in!

  1. Have a games night

Gambling is an expensive hobby but there’s no reason you can’t bring the fun of the casino into your home, without the risk. Set up a poker table but instead of betting with real money, use matches or something of low value. If you really want to use money you can use coppers instead of notes, to make sure your night doesn’t end up costing you more than you bargained for!
