Cheap Ways to Spend New Year’s Eve

cheap ways to spend new yearsWho says you have to spend a bundle on going out for New Years?  And who likes the crowds anyway?  Here’s a list of some money saving alternatives:

Midnight Marshmallow Roast – Build a fire inside or out and roast some marshmallows around the fire.  If you don’t like marshmallows, fruits like bananas, strawberries or even hotdogs work.

Sleep Under the Stars – Unless the weather is atrocious, spend New Year’s Eve camping in a park or your own backyard.

Change of the Year Soup – My mother always made lentil soup on New Year’s Eve and ate a bowl at the stroke of midnight.  It was an old family tradition that was supposed to bring good luck.

Spa Night – If you like to spend time alone, spend the evening pampering yourself. A bubble bath, manicure, pedicure, facial – give yourself the works.  Light some candles or simmer fragrant oils on a warmer, pick some soothing music and relax.

Popcorn Party – If you want to celebrate with family or friends, select a few movies or get out your board games and serve home-made popcorn.  Try different varieties – flavored, fruity, mixed with nuts and of course, plain or buttered.  Serve cider, sparkling or flavored water to wash it down.
