7 THINGS TO DO ON NEW YEAR'S EVE… THAT DON'T BREAK THE BANK

Posted 8 December 2019 by The Saucy Fish Co.

When the New Year rolls around many of us are partied out. We’ve splashed out on extravagant Christmas presents and good food, and we’re looking at the calendar hoping pay day is just around the corner.

But New Year’s Eve only happens once a year (strangely enough) and life’s too short not to celebrate and do something. So, here are seven things you can do to make December 31st memorable without breaking the bank and partying all night.

Watch the stars

Okay, this may depend on weather conditions but what better way to start a new year than staring up into infinity and dreaming big. Get out in the garden or park and you should also be treated to a free firework show.

Get out the board games

We all have them in the loft and they’re a great way of bringing people together. A good old fashioned games night doesn’t cost much and you could go into January as a big winner. Remember that gran isn’t a big fan of Twister.

Have a sing-song

In days of old, standing around a piano singing songs was considered more fun than Netflix. But why shouldn’t you do it now? Stick on the stereo and let everyone burst their lungs to all your favourite tunes. A few drinks may help you build up some courage.

Volunteer for something

There are plenty of charities who need volunteers on New Year’s Eve to help the less fortunate. Give yourself a warm feeling inside by doing some good – you’ll wake up feeling you’ve achieved something more than a terrible hangover.

Start the new year early

We all make resolutions but why wait until next year. End the year by starting something new. Learn French, do some exercise or try a new recipe on New Year’s Eve. Just do something you’ll enjoy and forget the indulgence.

Go to your neighbour’s house

Okay, you didn't really want to go round to the neighbour’s house on New Year’s Eve. But they’re paying for the food and alcohol and they may have invited some guests who are actually… interesting. Go on, you can always leave early.

Just have a nice meal

Just picture it: you, your close friends and a lovely Saucy meal. It doesn’t cost a lot and you’ll have a lovely chat over a good piece of fish. It’s simple, but just what’s needed after days or weeks of overeating and overdrinking.
