The popular trend “Detty December” is used to mean spending December in a vivacious way. On Twitter, detty December hashtags are already rolling out, and there is rave around what the budget for the season looks like. Many Africans have disclosed on social media their plans to go wild. Here are a few tips to prepare for a Detty December ahead of time;

Sort Out Important Bills and Expenses NOW. From night clubs to day parties, over billed concerts, house parties and themed events. One major trait associated with Detty December is spontaneous outings, events and spending. You do not want to end up spending money meant for something far more important (if your rent is due in January for example) on partying.

Make a budget in advance. This should go without saying but it is important that you avoid “going with the flow” during the Detty December period. A more reasonable way to prepare for the expenses is to have some money budgeted and set aside that is meant to be spent lavishly on “turning up” next month.

Make travel preparations now. If you plan on travelling to any countries in Africa for a concert, now is the time to make the travel preparations. Booking flights ahead of time will save you some money. Some examples of concerts that held last year are Afro Nation in Ghana and Cape Town Concert in South Africa.

Take advantage of the Black Friday Discount: During this period, you will be on the go everyday and you may even go to multiple parties in one day. In case, you need to get your wardrobe party ready, take advantage of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales currently going on across several retail stores and buy clothes, shoes and bags at a discount.

Reach out to your potential party friends. The pandemic did a number on the social lives of many people. It made it genuinely hard to keep up with some friends. Now would be a good time to reach out to your friends who you may not have spoken with recently just to set the tone and rekindle your relationship in time for the detty december link up.
