How do I stop spending too much when I'm with friends?

I seem to be spending too much when I'm with friends(close friends that consist of 5 people - best friends); for example buying food with them and I can see that I'm putting in more than anyone in the group and I don't wanna put down anyone saying that I can't spend more than anyone.

It's not that hard to say "let's split the bill equally" or "let's just pay for what we got".

>I don't wanna put down anyone saying that I can't spend more than anyone.
Why not? They're your friends, if you can't say it to them, who CAN you say it to?

"Hey, guys. I'm a little bit short this week. Could we go eat someplace cheaper?"

Learn how to say "no".

One of my friends ended up driving 4 people to the airport because he didn't do what I did and tell them to fuck off. Don't fall for any pity shit either. Unless a life is in danger, it's not your obligation unless you're OK with it also. If they start hating you over it, they were never your friends, but they loved using you.

It's perfectly fine to say "No I can't go out- can't afford it... but if someone wants to spot me ;)"
Worst they can say is; "No, can't spot you, catch you next time"
If you're in a friendship that goes back and forth, more people get to join in on the fun. You've done your part by helping others carry the bill. As long as they're on the same page and informed before you leave, it shouldn't be a problem.
If not, you still get to keep your money and your friends know you would make it if you could afford it and are still wanting to be included in planning.

I'm taking all the advises in.

I really have to learn to say "no". I'm actually really introverted and have had instances in the past were friends have avoided me and that hurt me a lot. So that's why I don't wanna hurt or put down anyone in anyway.

I shouldn't be easily swayed.

Thank you guys.
