Further Reading: Sometimes it is more than just money

Of course, life does not necessarily be all about costs. There are certain element found at the bar or a club which cannot be measured in money.

Factors such as:

  • Good music by the live band or the DJ
  • Good service by the bar or the club
  • The possibility of meeting new friends
  • The ambience of the place
  • The “shiok baller” feeling when getting drinks at the clubs or bars

Living life in moderation is important. A good guideline to check if you are overspending on lifestyle such as drinking is to go back to the 50/30/20 rule.

Drinking should come from the expenses pile when one has sufficient to spare. If not the recipe above works.
