Dates on a Dime!

Since most of us are in a money crunch...here are a couple of dates that cost..well maybe at most a dime!

1. Test drive your fantasy car together... who cares if you can't afford it...its more fun to pretend!


2. Take the rough out of "roughing it." For just one evening, camp in your backyard. Skip the tent so you can view the stars!
(take a bottle of wine)

3. At your local Humane Society, snuggle and scratch adorable adoptables. Talk about hte pets you had as a child. List their names, antics and habit... oh and commit to waiting 24 hours before deciding to bring a pet home!

When was your last date with your Husband or Boyfriend? Sometimes I think we forget to stop...and appreciate each other among the craziness of planning a wedding..and day to day activities....

Great ideas! We're pretty simply people and just enjoy watching our favorite TV shows together! John worked Saturday and called about 3 and said to not eat dinner that we would go out for dinner when he got home! Good enough date for me!

awe...i know..when Darin is home we usually do the dinner thing too.. we pick a different place each time.. but i really like the "test driving a car" one...

Very cute ideas. A cheap date night for us is going to Barnes & Noble and reading magazines, splitting a starbucks coffee drink!

such cute ideas! I like to make david lay on the sidewalk with me on clear nights and look at the stars and talk about things we never slow down and talk about :)

My hubby and I love to spend a few hours at the park relaxing, reading and munching on a picnic lunch.

This picture is to die for. I love it!

I love all your ideas.

I know it doesn't really count as a date night, but my husband and I LOVE to eat outside on the patio and sit out there with a fun drink until the sun goes down. We feel like we're away on vacation when we're sitting outside. Weird, but we love it!
