How to Enjoy a Quiet Night In

Updated on November 25, 2012

A night on the town is great your can see the sights, check out clubs, a great concert. But sometimes enjoying a good night at home is just what the doctor ordered. One may think this could be very boring and that can be true but with a little planning you can still enjoy yourself. Depending on the items you own though some of these suggestions may or may not work for you. Read on and check it all out.

Watching A Movie - Whether it be the latest film to come out on video or older much loved classics watching movies in the comfort of your living room can be a great pastime. With the advent of new technologies some of these may be downloaded from the Internet or watched through online services negating the need to go out just to rent DVDs. One thing I recommend is to make it a night to remember by digging through old films that you have and watching them to remember the old days.

Ordering Takeout - The classic is a pizza and everyone loves it. If your frugal like me and live in a bit of an expensive area you may want to try a few different pizza places over time to make sure your getting the best deal. Some pizza places offer a family deal with wings, a couple big pizzas, a couple bottles of pop and a desert. This is great and leaves you with some leftovers. I once even saw a deal that came with an order of carrots. This was great to try an have a little bit of something healthy in the mix. If pizza isn't to your liking maybe Chinese food or another type of takeout will satisfy. If you live in a city that has the option of takeout chances are there is a lot of choices so get what you like.

Playing Games - These can be be board games or video games. My family isn't the really that into games but we do own several board games anyway and we also play a few different online games upon occasion. What you play is really dependent on your interests. Board games can be great if you have more that a couple people to play if not possibly try an online game. Many of the online games these days offer multi-player options where players can fight against each other or play on the same team.

Throw A Party - If you have a basement or a great open space in your home and you want to stay in why not bring everyone to you. If you have a basement with a pool table play some pool. Play some music and maybe do a little dancing or just hang out with some of your close friends.

Spend Some On Your Interests - If you blog, create programs, draw, or do other types of art why not take some time to work on those things. What you love to do may feel like work to others but to you I'm sure it is very fulfilling.

      Lipnancy - me too, it is usually more cost effective and I enjoy my own personal space as opposed to a crowded theatre :)

      I prefer a night in. Don't have to deal with traffic or crowds.

      I hear you and I agree with this Hub. Going out on the town is expensive and can be dangerous if you live in a big city. Most people I know choose to have a sweet night at home. Useful and Interesting.
