Nights out are one of the biggest student loan killers, so to end the first series of No More Beans we thought we’d discuss how you can still be a baller on a budget. From pricey end of term balls to messy nights out, we tackle some of the biggest expenses you face as a student, and share our tried and tested methods for saving cash.
We reveal why a pasty pitstop is the night out lifesaver you never knew you needed, and how you can get cheaper entry into clubs. We then try our hand at making some interesting budget cocktails. Ever tried a Jammie Dodger shot before? You probably won’t want to after listening to this. Plus, we rustle up a Cheeky Vimto and Fluffy Duck to get the party going.
Things take a bit of a weird turn when we give drinking game app Picolo a go. Was Jess bitten by a tortoise? Which Justin Bieber song is Jake a secret fan of? All this plus more will be revealed when we give it a whirl.
In our final Money Confessions of the series, we reveal our most expensive nights out. If you’ve ever woken up to realise you’ve spent a bit too much money the night before, you’re definitely not alone. Plus, Jake talks about why running was his choice of transport on a night out, and Jess reveals why she took a blanket to the club.
