Compared to a night out at a bar, a BYOB party at home with friends is a very frugal way to let loose and have some fun. You get to pick the guests, the drinks, and the music. Better yet, if you host, you don’t need a designated driver to get home!
“The next time you want to buy something, instead consider buying stock in the company that makes it. Rather than buy a Coke, buy a share of Coke stock.”
