Everyone wants to have a life. Humans are social creatures and we all like to do things with our friends. The only problem is that it costs a whole lot to hang out with your buddies or your significant other. You might want to go out and see a sporting event, boy that's really going to cost you. Ballparks and stadiums jack of their prices and you ended up paying top dollar for stuff you could get at home. The best advice, if you live in an area that has one, go see a minor league team. You get a lot of the excitement; can get much more involved in the game; and can still hang out with your buddies. Or, if you're going to the main event, pack your pockets with snacks and soda cans. Cargo pants are quite useful.
If you want to spend time with that special someone, you're going to have to pay. But that doesn't mean that you have to break the bank this time either. One of your best options is to find something that you can do together that is free. Find a local zoo that doesn't have an admission charge, go find free concerts that are taking place in a park, or a local theatre company that has reasonable prices. Go out for a nice dinner after that. Also, enjoy the free stuff that nature provides you. It sounds rather corny, but if you want to have a social life and not break the bank, you should consider it.
