Do you want to go on a date but you are low on funds? Frugal date nights are very possible. Yes, you can still go on fun dates with your partner even if you are out of money. Having fun on a date doesn’t mean you have to shell out a lot of money!
In frugal dating you can be creative. By setting a low (to no) budget you will be able to make memories that will last a lifetime without spending a fortune.
Frugal Date Night Ideas
Picnic at the Park – Get your picnic basket, prepare a sandwich, grab a bottle of water and head to your local park for a picnic dinner.
Cook Together – Dating does not have to be done away from the house. The important thing is you are together and spending time with each other. It seems like dating always consists of eating out so mix things up and cook dinner together? If you are lucky, you may even find the needed ingredients at home. Or, even if you still need some of the missing ones, it would surely not cost you that much. Do not forget to make desserts as well! Add a few candles to your dinner to make it a little more romantic.
Plan for an Active Date – Strap on those roller blades, grab a baseball glove, put on your bathing suit, grab a golf club, or just tie your shoes and take a walk or jog. Being active is EASY and very overlooked.
Movie Night At Home – Order a movie from Amazon or grab the latest new release from Redbox. Snuggle on the couch while you watch a romantic comedy, thriller, or sci-fi movie.
Go Geocaching – This is not just an activity for kids – I promise. Geocaching is a great way to explore the area that you live in.
Listen to Live Music – Whether it is at a coffee shop or an ice cream parlor call around to see if free music is available near you. There are always budding musicians who like to play in public and you could make their day by being in the audience.
Explore the area – Drive to a nearby town or attraction and spend the afternoon taking in the sights of sounds of somewhere new.
Play Board Games – Invite friends over for a double date and play board games….or find a few board games that only require two people. My favorite is Scrabble, but Cribbage is a close second.
Volunteer – Find a local charity that needs a few volunteers and spend time helping others together. You could also find an elderly person who could use some company and plan frequent visits.
Dating should be simple and fun. You do not need to spend a ton of money to impress someone or to have fun.
