It’s the middle of the month and you are most likely responsibly broke, i.e. – not enough of an allowance for casual Saturday nights out; or you are just exhausted from a long work week and all you want to do is sit in your sweatpants and watch cable all weekend. Depending on what situation you belong to, here are a few tips you can try to have some more fun while lounging around in those sweatpants.
Food and Drink
Overrated and underappreciated. Pizza is perhaps some of the best comfort junk foods made for mankind. Pizza works with any situation, if you are alone watching romantic movies or with friends at home watching horror movies. It’s also a great option for game nights, larger slumber parties or when your entire family needs a break from home food but refuse to leave the house.
Yes, you used to bring aerated water by the dozen but as a grown mature adult, you’ve switched to wine. You could havea cellar lying casually in your basement or you could just opt for your local wine delivery service.
It’s also the drink perfect for any occasion: from cocktail dresses and hor d’oeuvres or to a pyjama-only girls slumber party and DIY makeovers. Most towns now offer a local wine delivery service or an Australian wine, so the next time you are driving home from work, be sure to make note of the number to call for those weekends in.
There are lots of ways to keep you entertained over the weekend. Unless you plan on catching up on a backlog of work from the weeks passed, be sure to have a couple of movies you might watch bought, ordered on demand or downloaded. Movies are again great for either solo parties or entertaining crowds.
If your weekend at home has more than two people, think of board games. Again, be sure to have plenty of options available so no one gets bored, everyone’s wishes are tended to and you just have a whole lot of fun.
If it’s just a bunch of you girls spending the weekend over, revisit your days from sophomore year andbring in some herbal remedies for some DIY facials, makeovers, manicures and pedicures. This would also be an ideal time to also watch Legally Blonde.
Whatever you choose to do this weekend, if it’s work or just by yourself or friends at home, be sure to clock-in enough hours of sleep, stay hydrated and eat plenty to get yourself geared and ready for the coming week ahead.
