Start the celebrations before you leave your home

A night out is a celebration of life and the freedom to do what you like, when you like. And, if you want to save money on this celebration then you should begin them in the comfort of your own home. You should do so — which could involve you having a drink or eating before you leave — so that you don’t have to pay the extricate prices of having to do so when you are out. Of course, if you ‘pre-drinking’, just make to not drink too much as that could ruin your evening.

Stock up on carbs

Carbs might not always be your friend, but they are when you are going on a night out. They are because they will see you feel full enough to skip having that late-night kebab, which will instantly save you some money. So, before you head out, make sure you eat a proper meal packed full of as many carbs as possible.

Prepare for your return home even before you leave it

If you put plans into place in regards to the ending of the night, even before you’ve started the night, you will save yourself a load of money. First of all, sticking with the theme of eating, by preparing yourself a meal to come home to you will stop yourself from having to pay more money for food you don’t even really need — you just have to remember the meal is there and waiting for your back home whilst you are out! Second of all, you should prepare for how you are actually going to get home by pre-booking a taxi. By doing so you will not have to pay the extortionate prices demanded by taxi drivers in the early hours of the morning.

Use loyalty or discount cards whenever and wherever you can

Different places and businesses are always using loyalty and discounts cards to entice custom, and you should be making the most out of these cards. Whether this entails you using an Uber credit card in order to tap into the fair-reducing benefits of doing so, whether this entails you using the drinks vouchers handed to you by club promoters or PRs or whether this entails you using the cards handed to you by local restaurants or fast food establishments to get cheaper drinks and food respectively, just make sure you use them! Make sure you use them because they will save you a bucket load of cash on your night out.

Nights out do not have to be expensive ventures, you know. You just take the advice above and stick to any budget that you impose upon yourself.
