Taking the entire family out for an evening of fun is exciting and can elevate tensions however, going out costs money and times can be a bit tough – especially in this economy. So, to enjoy an affordable evening with your family, consider these 5 cheap nights out where you can really enjoy some family bonding while saving money at the same time.
Cheap Family Night #1: The Movies
I know you are thinking a movie is really expensive these days and you can’t afford to go but, frequently during the week, movie theaters offer specials – even 2 for 1 deals – to get more people in during the middle of the week. As a result, taking your family to the movies on a Tuesday or Wednesday as opposed to Friday or Saturday can save a lot of money. Also, consider popping popcorn at home and carrying it with you in a purse. That way you can enjoy popcorn without spending $5 for a small bag. Soda is the real money-maker for theaters. Bringing your own in a bag can save you have of your evening’s expenses.
Cheap Family Night #2: Bowling
Bowling is a great family activity and like the movies many bowling alleys offer specials during the week, especially for kids. So, have a great dinner at home and head to the bowling alley. Of course, call ahead and find out when your local bowling alley offers specials for families and children. This is a fantastic way to unplug from technology and get fun exercise during the colder months of the year.

Then, head to your local ice cream parlor and have a cone of your favorite flavor or buy a gallon of ice cream to enjoy at home.
