We all know that we need to get away and relax with some friends every now and then, right? But really, who wants to spend loads of money on a girls night? I know I don’t.

So, today I’m going to some tips with you on how to have a girls night at home on a budget!
Don’t bother going out – that will be the single tip that saves you the most. Stay in and have fun inside. Build a f*cking fort or something – cool shit like that.
eBay is going to be my biggest tip other than staying home (yes, I know I talk about eBay a lot!). You can get some really cool, really fun stuff on eBay. From a bulk lot of face masks, to junk food, to spa essentials for a cheap price, and goodness knows what else! Spice up your girls night by doing something new, and using eBay. The best part? It’s all shipped to you.
Use your library
Okay, you all know how much I love my library. I’ve talked about it a few times, I know that. I can actually get board games from mine! And the usual – movies, CD’s, books, etc. You can get some DIY books, or maybe an astrology one. I know that was a huge hit at a couple of girls nights I’ve done!
Did you know you can buy one month’s worth of a subscription box? They aren’t always cheap but they range from $10-$50 per box, depending on what you want and they are an awesome way to try new stuff. My husband and I have TokyoTreat, and it’s always an awesome surprise inside! Makes for a really exciting time if ya’ll open it together, too!
Try something new together
Back to the DIY. We all have things we want, right? Maybe we want to try knitting, or maybe we want our living room painted, or maybe we want to try some DIY’s we saw on Pinterest. Either way, a girls night is a great chance to do it! Get together as a group and see how the first attempt goes!
You don’t have to do the traditional girls night. If you guys would rather play board games, or watch anime, or maybe you’re into MtG, or crocheting – that’s cool. When we think “girls night”, we think beauty treatments and gossip, but it doesn’t have to be that way!
