Need time with your sweetie? Funds a little tight?
Go to a movie earlier in the day for matinee prices.
Use coupons (Check out Groupon for date night deals).
Put your change in a jar and use that for date nights.
Go out for coffee and dessert (instead of a whole meal).
Ship the kids off to a friend’s house and have a date at home.
Go to free or cheap events (check the “about town” section of your newspaper or city website).
Take up a free (or near free) hobby together (like photography or bird watching).
Yeah, yeah. I know you’ve heard this stuff before, but don’t let this just sit in your In Box. Get creative!
Save your change and use it to go see that movie your sweetie has been looking forward to (matinee prices) and then stop to share a dessert.
Watch a local sports team compete and then share a picnic lunch in the park.
Go hiking or bird watching (take munchies).
Meet weekly for coffee and conversation.
Share a lovely dinner on the patio at sunset (ship out the kids or have them dress up and serve y’all as waiters).
When you personalize these simple ideas, you can create a date idea that will work for you. Don’t let a lack of funds keep you from having fun with your sweetie.
