Tip 2: New Year for every wallet

0 rubles 0 kopecks


Alas, this also happens: New Year is on the nose, and there is not a single penny in the home moneybox. You can write a New Year's comedy script on this topic, take a bank loan, ask friends for a loan, or just go to bed after the chimes ... But it's much better to celebrate for free. There are options.


Go to the city or district New Year festivities. Fireworks, round dances around the Christmas tree, congratulations from Santa Claus and Snow Maiden, festive concerts, crowds of smiling people around are waiting for you - and all this is absolutely free. When and where the New Year festivities will take place in Moscow on the night of December 31, 2014 to January 1, 2015, can be found on city sites.


No money for a dream tree? No problem! Festive decorations were probably left from last year - decorate indoor plants with balls and shiny tinsel, arrange Christmas decorations on the shelves, hang garlands under the ceiling. Family budget can not stand the purchase of delicacies? Festive dishes can be prepared from the most ordinary products that everyone probably has in the fridge: potatoes, pasta, chicken.


Invite your friends to organize a New Year's feast in your home, dividing responsibilities - they buy food, drinks and fireworks, and you cook, set the table and wash the dishes. Many would agree with pleasure.
