I’m a Cheap Date

29 Sep

Jason and I have been doing pretty well with our no spend month. It probably hasn’t been a true no spend month because we did buy a few things non grocery or gas related but its been good for our first time. One thing that we’ve been missing on our no spend month is cute dates. Usually our dates include going out to dinner and having a few glasses of wine and just enjoying each others company. This is something that we still plan on doing but limiting it to maybe once a month or once every couple months. In the mean time I wanted to think if some cute but free/cheap date ideas.So far this is what I’ve come up with.

  1. Go for coffee and just sit and talk for a while
  2. Go to a winery for wine tasting. Tasting is free most of the time and if you go to local wineries a bottle of wine is usually less than $15. In fact one of my favorite bottles from a winery near us is only $11.
  3. Go to an open house. Jason and I love looking at houses and all things real estate. Look in your local paper for when there is an open house in your area and check it out!
  4. Events at your local college. The university that I go to has so many free or low cost events. They have free movies every night at 8 in their theatre, sporting events, lectures (which are sometimes really interesting!), fairs, etc.
  5. Game night. Make some junk food or appetizers at home and whip out the old monopoly set! If you don’t have any board games goodwill is a great place to look.
  6. Make a romantic dinner together and eat by candle light! Who says you have to go to a restaurant to have a nice dinner and enjoy each others company? Last night I made pasta Florentine. Its not something I make all the time but it was perfect for our Tuesday night date at home!
