NEW YEARS WITHOUT GOING TO A CLUB/RESTAURANT/HIP PLACE IS THE BEST

  1. This year my fam went to our pal's house.
    The kids did sparklers, made mini pizzas and played like little weirdos until about ten. The adults had fancy cheeses and drinks, sang songs outside by the fire and laughed at our kiddos. We all slept over and made breakfast together in pjs.
  2. You are not spending tons of money
    One NYE I spent about $300 out and about. That is just dumb.
  3. Choose a safe space to be and stay there!
    Camping or your house or a friends house- all are super fun and you can sleep over. I've tried to hit multiple parties in one night, which meant I spent more time traveling than I did having fun.
  4. Your friends and family are the people you want to ring in the New Year with- not a rando
    We all like making out. But NYE is so much pressure! Hang out with friends instead of forcing a random date to be IT for an important night.
  5. Board games, karaoke, YouTube video dance party- so many ways to be silly with your pals
    Looking sexy for a kiss at midnight is overrated
  6. Dress however you want
    Silly hats? Fancy dresses? Bow ties? Sweat pants? You do you.
  7. Breakfast tacos in the morning
    ESSENTIAL
