Frugal Date Idea: Fun Recipes & Board Games

Email  Print Print  

Board GamesKim Palmer of US News & World Report’s Alpha Consumer asked people for their best frugal date ideas and here was my submission:

Our frugal date consists of finding a fun and creative recipe online and then cooking it for dinner. We’ve discovered many great recipes this way, and we’ve improved our ability to cook and improvise. This takes the frugal idea of cooking your own meals, rather that eating out at restaurants, and combines it with a frugal way of entertaining yourself (since the entertainment of cooking and company is essentially free). Then, after the cooking and enjoyment of the wonderful food you’ve created, follow it up with a fun night of board games or card games. A deck of cards isn’t more than a dollar, and there are thousands of games you can play!

Turns out it was chosen as one of the top three and she’s asking for votes for the best! Canadian Dream’s idea of just hanging out at a bookstore is one that my wife and I have done in the past – it’s a great way to check out a bunch of books and have a quiet reading night.

Anyway, if you have a free moment and want to see some cute frugal date ideas, head on over and submit a vote.

    man, you should total take the crown vs. those other two submissions!

  2. LOL! I dunno about that. I think all three are pretty darn good. Especially mine! 🙂

  3. Ah, they are all great. At least I tell myself that because I didn’t expect to be a finalist.

    Best of luck to us all.

    I’m also guilty of hanging out in the bookstore to find books that I later check out at the library.

    I voted for your entry because that is something that the hubby and I enjoy doing! We both love board games and card games and I love cooking. I love doing tapas for board game nights so that we can eat while we play. I recently acquired a fondue set so I’m hoping to give that a whirl soon. I hope you win!
