How to Have a Frugal At Home Date Night

This post was sponsored Tai Pei, all opinions expressed in my post are my own.


Finding a night when my husband and I can schedule a date night has become harder and harder lately. My husband has an extremely unpredictable and busy flight schedule and finding a babysitter that I like and trust is not always easy. Life gets busy and can often push our date night to the side, but it doesn’t have to!

You can still have a date night of your own at home, and on a budget. Forget spending a lot of money on an elaborate dinner or slaving in the kitchen to cook the perfect meal. To have a frugal date night at home, all you need is Tai Pei entrees, your favorite drinks and your significant other!

How to Have a Frugal at Home Date Night

My husband and I used to love ordering Asian food takeout. But let’s be real. Ordering takeout can be unpredictable. Your food may not be cooked like you prefer, delivery may be late, sometimes your order and it can get expensive. Now that we’ve discovered Tai Pei entrees, we’re able to get our date night in Asian food fix while on a budget. And there’s no waiting for a delivery driver to deliver cold Asian food. It’s guaranteed to be hot, delicious and just what you’re craving.

I love how great tasting Tai Pei’s entrees are. There is exceptional flavor in each dish and a range of tasty entrees that are made with real, pure ingredients. There are no artificial ingredients or preservatives, which I LOVE. I’m not even sure if your local Asian restaurant can say that. Tai Pei helps add flair to your date night meal and eliminates the boredom that occurs when eating the same thing over and over. Tai Pei offers a wide range of entrees that have flavor-infused rice.

Our favorite entrees are the General Tso Spicy Chicken, Orange Chicken and Chicken Fried Rice. After heating these up in the microwave, you will never be able to believe that you are eating previously frozen fried rice.

After you enjoy conversation, delicious Tai Pei entrees and your significant other – there are also several frugal at-home date night activities that you can partake in!

Fire Pit

Enjoy the night air and warming up next to your significant other. While we don’t get to do this as much this time of year living in Alaska, we used to love cuddling up on our back porch with our favorite drinks! It’s a fun time to talk and just spend time together.

Binge Watch Your Favorite Shows

Find a favorite show series to watch together and binge watch it. But only watch these together. It’ll be something you look forward to and can do together.

Host a Game Night

Invite some of your couple friends over for a couples game night! Join forces with your spouse and have fun!

Play a Card Game

Get a little competitive against each other. The loser has to do dishes!
