Who would’ve thought that you and your buddies can also strengthen your ties as you level up your financial quotient? This is, no doubt, one of the most purposeful bonding moments you’ll ever have together. Continue your financial savvy friendship with a few more tips to be money smarter:
Hold accountability sessions.
Help each other keep track of his/her spending by doing casual catch-ups over lunch or coffee centered on your financial behavior. Be as open and transparent with each other regarding this, as you are when it comes to other areas of your life. You’re in this together, after all—no judgment, just pure concern for each other’s welfare.
Opt for “free” activities together.
These not costly activities actually end up being the priceless ones, as they focus more on human interaction versus material consumption. Cheesy as it sounds, these are walks in the park, volunteer work at shelters and other charitable organizations, at-home fitness get-togethers, and the like.
Because what better way to combat consumption than by recycling? Help each other mix and match the items in your wardrobe to create fresh new looks. Play around with the nooks, crannies, and décor in your homes to rejuvenate your respective homes. Hold a swap meet among your circle of friends for cool additions to your stash, as you get to declutter, too.
