Financial Guidance: Money Smart Date Night Ideas For Fun And Frugality

Whether you are just beginning a relationship or have been together for years, finding fun and yet inexpensive date night activities needs to be a priority for every couple. Low cost doesn’t have to mean a do nothing, no fun excursion. In fact, many people find these activities even more exciting than the expensive date nights.

  • Cook A New Meal Together: This might be a great way to expand your at home menu and also spend time in an activity that provides a delicious reward when finished.
  • Go Out For Dessert: Another way to lower the cost of date night is to eat at home and then go out for dessert. This allows you to experience going out and yet the overall cost will be much less than eating dinner and dessert out.
  • Hiking At A Park: If you want a more active date, consider visiting a local state or national park for a day of hiking and site seeing. These can be rewarding and spontaneous adventures because you can pick your destination the day you plan to go.
  • Attend High School Sports: If you both like sporting activities consider tailgating at home before watching the big game on TV or if you want in person sports, your local high school might provide the excitement you desire.
  • S’mores Night: If you are looking for activities to do with your friends, consider a board game night or having them over for s’mores around the fire pit. Just remember to keep it simple, you provide the s’mores ingredients only.
  • Cruising in Your Car: If you want a really simple date, take a day trip to see sights in your state. Build a playlist and pick a day that will be enjoyable to drive backroads and see some new places in your hometown or state.
