It is generally accepted wisdom not to share or borrow money from friends but there are a number of ways friends can help each other during these challenging economic times. Below are four tips for friends who want to spend more time together, while at the same time improving their individual lives.
Buying in Bulk
A cost warehouse card can be a great way to save money by buying in bulk. The downside to this system is that many of us lack the storage space to use these cards effectively. Buying in bulk together with a friend and then separating the items into manageable amounts can be a great way to spend time together and share savings.
Creating an exchange of movies, books, and magazines among friends can be a great way to have fun while saving. Sharing housing amenities with a close friend can also prove useful. For example, I workout once a week with a friend at her gym, and she does movie night at my house while using my washer.
With the emergence of online social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn everyone is talking about the importance of networking. Friends are an important part of your network success and they provide a prominent means to find job opportunities, meet new work contacts, and make new friends.
Helping us celebrate our joys and supporting us during the hard times, friends are a critical part of our lives and with these great tips you can save money while spending even more with them.
