Living on a Budget - Join (or start) a club

Hello Readers,

Do you find that spend too much money on going out with friends? Sticking to a budget can be easy when it comes to food, transport and the like, but when it comes to one's social life, it's easy for the budget to go right out the window. So what's a more affordable way to spend time with old friends and meet new friends without spending too much of your hard-earned cash? Join, or start, ...

... a club.

One of the trendiest clubs at the moment is called "Stitch n Bitch". There are such clubs all around the world, where anyone can go to knit and bitch with others. (They accept all levels, so if you've never knitted before, they'll teach you. ) It's a great opportunity to meet new people - without spending much money - and to learn a useful skill.

If there isn't a Stitch n Bitch meeting near you, then you can also start your own.

For more information, go to: http://www.stitchnbitch.co.uk/.

Have you ever been to a Stitch n Bitch session? Feel free to share your comments below.

Hope that helps!
