At one time, a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant was commonplace for most couples. With the cost of living going up, dining out at a fancy restaurant at regular intervals may be a thing of the past. I know that raising a family can take a large chunk out of your budget. A cheap date night is just what you may need to add some excitement to your relationship.
Cheap Date Night Ideas
- Have a Movie Marathon- A relatively inexpensive date night would be to either rent or purchase a movie trilogy. It could be a movie trilogy that was made pretty close to the year in which you first started to date. You both will enjoy traveling back in time to when actors dressed and acted different. Grab some popcorn and other snacks and get cozy on the couch.
- Go to a Dress Rehearsal- If you like to go to the theatre but cannot afford the tickets for opening night, see if there are any tickets available for the dress rehearsal. You will get to enjoy the theatre and save yourself some money as well.
- Get Discounts to Restaurant Meals- Check online for discounts for meals on websites such as Restaurant.com. They may have discount pricing for certain meals at your favorite local restaurant. Although these meals may not be discounted every day of the week, work on changing your schedule to save a bundle of cash.
- Make a Meal Together- Tie on matching aprons and get creative in the kitchen. Share ideas for a special meal and make it together. Far cheaper than dining at a restaurant and there is no need to get all dressed up either.
These are just a few ideas for a fun time with that special someone in your life. Get creative with planning a cheap date night. You’ll never know just how much fun you have been missing!
