Woman Sparks Debate After Explaining Why You Shouldn’t Spend £100 On A Night Out

Woman Sparks Debate After Explaining Why You Shouldn’t Spend £100 On A Night Out

A TikToker has done the maths and explained why you shouldn't spend £100 on a night out.

As anyone living in a big city can attest, blowing through £100 on a night out can feel as easy as breathing.

However, one TikToker has put the cost into perspective and it's pretty stressful, we're not gonna lie.

Offering some food for thought, the TikToker writes: "Just think... If you go on say 2 nights out every month and spend on average £100 each time."

"That's £2400 a year on nights! £4800 in two years! 24,000 on nights out in 10 years!!"

Yep, £24,000.

With the cost of living rising, spending £100 for a pretty mediocre night out is hitting people harder than ever before.

One user wrote: "That £2,400 will be needed for energy and fuel bills now - UK."

However, others said that the cost was worth it for the 'memories'.

One user is writing: "Yer and if you never go out save all your money you will have a big house and No one to share it with no life experiences no memories great choice."

To which the content creator replied with: "Another person that obviously hasn’t seen the pinned comment. I go out A LOT, I make A LOT of memories, i have people in my life, it’s just a tiktok."

Another user said: "Money comes and goes, memories stay with you for a lifetime."

Honestly, while the thought of an extra £24,000 is lovely, nothing beats a well-needed night out with your mates as most concurred: "Memories are made with friends! Good to have some stories to tell when sat in care home in old age! Enjoy life whilst you can!"

And, if you're wondering where to head for your next big £100 night out, then look no further than York because the historic city was recently voted as the best night out in the UK.

According to a survey by Get Licensed, York has the best night out in the country, with a score of 7.67/10.

London and Manchester didn't even make it to the top 10, in case you were wondering.

While York might not be the choice you'd expect for a wild night out, the city is celebrated for its "excellent offering of pubs and bars, including some that are hundreds of years old".

Whether it's York or your local, nothing beats a good night out - even if it does cost you £24,000 over 10 years.
