No Money November

It has almost been a month since school started and for many of us, the savings we’ve garnered from our vacation work have almost dried up. But don’t fret if you’ve got no money this coming November. We have listed some activities that are sure to bring you some fun and enjoyment, while still going easy on your pockets.

  1. The Singapore Really Really Free Market

Love shopping? But no money to spend? Leave your wallets at home when you visit The Singapore Really Really Free Market, as everything on display there is up for grabs – for free.  This is because the Singapore Really Really Free Market is a place where people bring their beloved items and put it up for grabs. Its aim is to encourage the spirit of sharing within the community. Anyone that has anything they’d like to share are welcomed to bring a mat and set up a booth at the market. Likewise, if you see something you like, just go and grab it! Find out more on their Facebook page.
