Everyone likes to go out and have a good time. It can be a lot of fun, but often times in that fun it can be easy to lose track of how much you have spent. There are some things you can do to help you save money when you go out.
If you are one who likes to go to bars, you need to pick your favorite and go there regularly. It is a known fact that people who are not regular at bars will end up paying more than those who are a regular. This does not mean you have to be best friends with the bar tender, but they should be able to recognize your face. If they recognize your face and remember what it is that you drink, then you know for sure that you have been upgraded it regular status.
When you are out at that bar, or any bar really, tip as you go, instead of leaving one large tip for your first drink. This is a mistake that many people make. If you leave a large tip for your first drink and the place is busy it may be hard for the bartender to remember how much you gave them. Occasionally there is a shift change as well, and the new bartender will not know how much you left before they got there. Instead the best way to go is to give a tip each time you get a drink. This way the bartender can remember that every single time they serve you they will be getting a tip.
When out with friends shots can be a lot of fun, and a lot of money. Do not buy people shots, if you and your friends are wanting to do shots, then everyone should buy their own. Instead if you and your friends are wanting to take turns buying the drinks, buy a pitcher of beer. Per glass of beer this is cheaper than buying individual glasses or bottles.
Before leaving to meet up with your friends determine your budget. If you decide you only want to spend a certain amount, only put that much in your wallet. If you only want to spend one amount but have a larger amount in your wallet, it is very easy to end up spending the larger amount instead of the amount you really wanted to spend.
This is just a few of the ways you could save money when going out with your friends. If you sit down and think about it you can probably come up with many more ways to save. This should get you thinking though. You can have a budget and still be able to go out with friends.
