Girls Night Out- Budget101 Discussion List

Two of my friends and I (all moms of toddlers) are planning a Girls Night Out in a couple weeks. This is a rare occurence for us. I'm trying to come up with something to do that won't cost much money, as we're all on tight budgets. It would be very relaxing to go out to dinner and have

    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="764495120-03102007">What about a sports bar? Wings are usually pretty cheap. Then is there a cheap movie theatre nearby? You can all see a 'chick flick' together.

    Is there a coffee house nearby? You could just go out for desert.

    Have fun!

    Something that my aunt and uncle used to do ... they

    had a group of friends, I think there were 3 or 4

    couples total. They all would buy the same

    Entertainment or Bonus Book, the ones with all the

    coupons and the Buy One Get One dinners at select

    restaurants. So what they would do, once a month one

    couple would pick the restaurant. Before they went,

    they would meet at that couple's house for wine and

    drinks, maybe even some simple appetizers. Then

    they'd go to dinner, using the card and getting the

    BOGO deal for each couple. Then they'd come back to

    the "host" couple's house again after for dessert and

    coffee.

    This might be a borring suggestion, but how about staying at somebody's house, and each person pitch in with some food item and also each bring beverage of some kind. Find a place where you have coupons for that goes for the total bill. Lots of restaurants offers sample appetizers, that 2-3 person could split, and if you then have a coupon for the total bill at the same time. Also some bars at restaurants has happy hour. So maybe combine the appetizer with the coupon and the happy hour, I guess that would make it inexpensive.

    I live in the suburbs of Boston. One of the moms is

    pregnant, and the other is nursing, so there will be

    mostly virgin drinks involved! We don't have a cheap

    movie theater nearby, but there is a coffee house. I

    suppose an alternative would be to just get

    appetizers. I think we'll save the "Girls Night IN"

    until my friend has her baby and can't get out as

    easily.

    I understand about being on a budget. But I also understand that

    everyone needs piece of mind.

    Going out to dinner is a great way to get it. Myself and my best

    friend from High school have done that for years. We meet atleast

    once a month. We go out to eat, talk over coffee and split the bill.

    It's a nice break and adult conversation is a must!!

    My kids are now 17 and 13 but we still do that. Infact my best

    friend just had a set of twins 10 weeks ago today and she said to me

    last night I love my babies but we need to meet for dinner. Now she

    know what I was talking about when I said I needed the adult

    conversation lol..

    So go out! Go to dinner its worth the money and your sanity for a

    couple of hours of enjoyment.

    What about scrapbooking? Most stores that specialize in scrapbooking

    have night "crops" or "scraps" for a low cost or free. You bring in

    your stuff, sit down, and spend the evening making scrap book pages.

    You have to pay for anything like stickers, paper, or embelishments

    you use, but they let you use things like rulers, siccsors, paper

    punchs, etc, for free.



    Do you guys have a Coldstone Creamery near you? You guys could go

    and make your own ice cream up before going to crop, or afterwards.



    Maybe check with local schools for choir concerts or plays, and go

    see a show together. They'll be much cheaper than going to a

    professional show, and they can be very good (or funny!).



    Find a beauty school near you, and have everyone go in to get a

    facial. Beauty schools are MUCH cheaper than a regular salon, and

    facials cna be SO very relaxing. You can usually get it done for

    around $10. The students do the work, but they are 2nd year

    students, and are always supervised.



    If no one is pregnant, or once they are no-longer pregant, you guys

    could all go ice skating at an arena, followed up by hot cocoa or

    coffee somewhere. You could also try it with roller skating instead

    of ice skating.



    As a busy mom of 3, I would recommend maybe making it a once a month

    event for the moms to get out of the house, kid free, to do

    something together. It doesn't have to be big and fancy- just being

    kid free for an evening can be relaxing.



    Me and some of my non-mom friends used to get together every

    Thursday to make dinner together (or get take out), and watch the

    Thursday night shows like Friends together. We called it Friends

    Night.



    We would each contribute towards dinner, then sit around watching TV

    and laughing together. It was SOOO relaxing for me to be out of the

    house and away from the kids like that each week. And, if we were

    broke, I just used something from the pantry to contribute towards

    dinner.

    I might be a little late here, but thought I would throw my thoughts

    out there.



    I used to go to Shari's after work and just have a piece of pie and an

    ice tea while visiting with co workers. A few times when there were 5

    of us there, we bought a whole pie, and drinks, and split the cost up

    at the end. I like Shari's because it has a good variety of desserts

    and other foods, and if you each do your own checks, you can limit your

    own spending to your budget while others do the same.



    If there are three of you, you could eat dinner a little early, and hit

    a pizza place to have a small snack type meal. Maybe buy a medium 3

    topping pizza (most places that is under $15) to split while hanging

    out.



    You could all get trial memberships at a gym (only if you are able to

    cancel before paying regular prices) and go there.... LOL.... I know

    that one sounds fun doesn't it?



    You could pack some drinks and put on your walking shoes. Find a track

    that is public accessible (at a school maybe), or maybe a park if there

    are any walking trails, window shopping at the mall would even work.



    You could even make a weekly or bi weekly event of all meeting up with

    the kids to walk. It would be nice to have some adult conversation, AND

    it would be great for your body





    I hope you have or had lots of fun!
