9 Fun Things To Do With Your Forever-Broke BFF
Friends come in all shapes and sizes (pocket sizes included), but who are we to discriminate?! Of course, things do get a little tougher if you have one friend who can afford to splurge on the latest Prada launch, and another who can barely fish out enough money for a plate of roadside momos. Yeah, we know you get it, because let’s face it; there’s one broke friend in EVERY damn group! But we love our friends, so we’ve learned how to make it work.
If you have a forever-broke BFF, here’s how you can have a great time together without thinking twice about how much money either of you will spend.
1. Bake a cake together
A small Ready-to-Bake mix is all you need for a great evening in. Or if you’re up to it, maybe bake from scratch? It’s a super fun way to spend some quality time with your BFF, and will barely cost you anything.
2. Tackle a stack of magazines
Dig out all the old magazines you’ve been hoarding for over a decade, and have fun skimming through them with your bestie. Try out those makeup tutorials from the Seventeen magazine, or reminisce the days when you crushed big time on the cast of High School Musical.
3. Do some research on BFF tattoos
C’mon you know it’s a great idea. You’ve probably wanted to get a tattoo anyway, so why not do it with your best friend? Surf the Internet for matching or complementing BFF tattoos, and plan for when you both can get them.
4. Catch up on an old TV show
If you’ve never binge-watched Gossip Girl, then drop everything ASAP, call your friend, pop some corn, and have a Gossip Girl marathon!
5. Go visit a site that you’ve never been to before
If you’re living in Mumbai, then go to the fort at Bandstand to get a good view of the Sea Link, or take a walk through the streets of Colaba or Fort and admire the architecture and history of the city. Explore the place you live in like tourists! P.S. Ride around in public transport for a change; it can be fun when you have nowhere in particular to be.
6. Look up free things to do in your city
There are always several events happening in and around the city that are completely free of cost. Whether it’s a free concert at a mall, or a flea bazaar where you can window shop, or a workout meet up hosted each morning, hit up all the free activities that you guys are interested in.
7. Indulge in a manicure sesh
Indulge in a nail art session at home, and take turns doing each other’s nails. If you need help getting creative with it you can check out our nail art series – here. Matching manicures, anyone?
8. Get fit together
A quick run around the block or a 15-minute dance workout session at home will help you spend time with your bestie and fit in a good workout. Plus, working out with a buddy is always motivating because of the inbuilt competition of outdoing your partner. If you’re working out at home, try out our fitness series- here. You both will love it!
9. Spend time at a bookstore
One of the best things to do is to walk into a nearby bookstore, and go through the aisles with your BFF. From comics to chick-lit, and even sci-fi, you will have a blast if you take your humour along with you.
