You can spend time together at home, make it budget-friendly but also bring the family closer together. From creating a special dinner plan together, desserts that feature M&M’s® products, getting comfy in your pajamas and playing a fun Hasbro® Game together, these family nights will be the things your kids will remember.

With three kids (and another one on the way) we simply don’t have it in our budget to take the entire family out on the town. Just going out to dinner could cost us $60+. A full night out with our kids could easily cost us $150+ for dinner, dessert and entertainment…what a hard hit to the budget! However we do love to have fun at home and we all look forward to our family game night that include a special meal, dessert and games played with mom & dad in our pajamas!

Family Game Night

We held our #GameNightIn last week and picked up the Jenga® game by Hasbro® at our local Walmart.

The classic Jenga game is already a family game night favorite because everyone can join in and well, who doesn’t love that anticipation and anxious giggling just before the tower crashes down!

Two big bowls of M&M’s® Milk Chocolate and M&M’s® Peanut to share was a sweet treat! Being able to gather together after dinner for a family game night and dessert without any hard hits to our budget helps us all to relax and just have fun together as a family.

Cost Comparision

Here is my cost comparison for a family night out versus #GameNightIn. It’s close to $100 that you can save by staying home!

As you can see, the savings of going out versus staying in are substantial. And at the end of the night, at least you still have the family game to keep and play again for years to come!
