Date Night on a Dime: 10 Ways to Have Date Night on the Cheap!
Finances can often be a huge hindrance for couples wanting to have a consistent date night. The desire may be there, but that doesn’t mean it is always do-able financially!
I don’t work outside of the home, and we have 2 young kids, so my husband and I have definitely learned to get creative when it comes to making date night work for us! Today, I’m sharing some of our secrets!!!
Here are my top 10 ways to have date night on the cheap!
Share an entree.
Skip the sodas/alcohol & order water.
Dress up like you are going to a 5 star restaurant, but eat at a local deli instead.
Stay home and play some board games. Go on a romantic nature walk.
Add “date night” into your monthly budget. Save a few dollars each week until you have enough for a fancy dinner date.
Swap free babysitting and date night weekends with another couple.
Have dinner out but rent a movie instead of going to a theatre.
Go to a movie earlier in the day to get cheaper tickets.
*Bonus tip* – If finding a babysitter is an issue, try ordering take out and having a date night at home after the kids are in bed. You could dress up, dim the lights and have a romantic candle lit dinner in your own dining room!
