VLOG 11: Best Falafel in Berlin ($3 a day – vegan – part 3)
Okay, so this may not be a video about the BEST falafel in Berlin, but it is probably the cheapest 🙂 We wanted to make a video that illustrates that you can live on a tight budget, but not give up your social life completely. Eating out is a huge part of a lot of people’s lives and it is a wonderful way to spend time with family and a friends, however it can easily become a super expensive habit … appetizers, dessert, drinks… I mean it is not surprising for people to easily spend over 30 euros a person on a dinner out, which is over a weeks worth of food budget in our frugal lifestyle. So we decided to show you how eating out cheaply can be done in Berlin and enlisted the help of our friend Alix (instagram.com/ouijetaimeaussi) who found falafel for just 50 cents. The main way to make sure that being frugal doesn’t dictate your entire life is to be creative and proactive. Instead of waiting for other people to suggest things to you (let’s go to this new bar?, want to go get sushi? go to the movies?) make the effort to organize events for all your friends. Not only will you be able to keep the budget low for the activities, but your friends and family will appreciate you taking the initiative to plan fun things for everyone to do. Some cheap things that can be done anywhere: movie night in with homemade popcorn, go on a hike and bring a picnic lunch, go on a walk in a park, game night, have a potluck, look up free events in your area, the list goes on and on! If you have any favorite free activities share them with us in the comments below : ) We’ll have 6 videos in this series and we hope to cover not only how to make great tasting, healthy meals, but also fun things to do that are free, the struggles that come up and so much more.
