Frugal Date Ideas

1. Flea Market: Just because your guy may not like shopping doesn’t mean he doesn’t enjoy the occasional treasure hunt!  Hit your local flea market and you may discover each others secret collections or start a new one together.

2.  Picnic: Make your own lunch/or dinner and have a romantic picnic at your local park or, depending on the weather, inside your own place.  Prepare everything as if you were leaving the house and move some furniture around so you can sit by a window or in the middle of the living room.

3.  Indoor Rock Climbing: Check out the local rock climbing gym and see if they have a happy hour or discount day.  Sites like Groupon and LivingSocial often offer deals on activities like rock climbing, so get ready for a workout!

4.  Drive-In: Search for a local drive-in movie theater, gather your favorite snacks from the grocery store and cozy up.  Drive-in’s often offer 2 movies for the price of one, so you’ll get double the entertainment and more cuddle time.

5.  Browse for Books: Spend some time together at the bookstore, reading and discussing what you find.  It’s a guaranteed way to learn about each others interests.

6.  Make your own pizza: Pretend you’re in Italy and make a homemade pizza together.  Have fun finding a new pizza recipe that you’ve always wanted to try.  Often, buying and making a homemade pizza is more affordable and better tasting than ordering from the local pizzeria.  Search for grocery coupons here, to make the night even more affordable.

7.  Animal Shelter: Play with animals at a local shelter.  The love you give these abandoned animals will boost your mood and spark a discussion about prospective pets.

8.  Comedy Show: Boost those endorphins and laugh ‘til you fall out of your seat!  Often comedy club tickets are inexpensive and can be comped with a drink purchase.

9.  Camping: Instead of spending money on a campsite and all the necessary items, set the tent up in the living room, and watch a free movie or read books.  Rent classic films from the local library or better yet, get a free Blockbuster kiosk film with these coupon codes.

Just enter the code at the kiosk and viola! date night is fun and free!

10.  Splurge on Dessert: Instead of going all out on an expensive meal, put the money towards a fun activity to do beforehand, and then dress up and go out for a decadent dessert.  Check out Restaurant.com for local restaurant coupons.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
