Frugal Week Planner for 18 Jan to 24 Jan 2017

The Lunar New Year is just around the corner, and most Singaporeans plan on spending less this year. It is also heartening to read that the majority of them plan on saving the ang bao money their children receive.

Frugal Week Planner for 4 Jan to 10 Jan 2017

One of the New Year Resolutions listed on a recent U.S. News & World Report article was to schedule in no-spend weekends, since many people tend to “let loose” when they’re not working and spend freely on extra food, entertainment, dining out and travel. Fortunately, there are many free things to do for entertainment here, some of which are listed below. And as a reminder, the Frugal Week Planners are just partial listings of upcoming free/frugal events; there are many other frugal events at community centres, museums, libraries, and parks that are not listed here. If you know of an event you would like to add, please comment below.
