Cheap dates

Life is busy.

There seems to be a never-ending list of stuff to fill our time with: work, school, errands, meal preparation, eating, sleeping, cleaning, exercise, church responsibilities, hobbies, appointments, social activities… You get the point :)

Life can easily suffocate our schedules with endless commitments without leaving time for the ones we love most. To avoid this, my wife and I have set a goal to have an official date night at least once a week. It’s usually not fancy or expensive. Our only requirement is quality time together.

So here are our top ten cheap date night ideas:

  • Visit a local grocery store for some ice cream cones, or McDonald’s works too.
  • Play a sport together – which for us is usually tennis, basketball, or a scooter ride
  • Go on a walk
  • Go to the local arcade, we like the rundown looking ones like Nickelcade or Nickel City to get more bang for our buck.
  • Stream a movie or TV show… Netflix + chill!
  • Go to a local concert – free or cheap
  • Set up and knock down a giant set of dominoes
  • Baking a treat – brownies and cookies are our favorites
  • Go to the local dollar movie theater (there are very few left, but they are out there!)

And I’ve saved the best for last…

  • Do something spiritual together, specifically, we like to go to a local temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Spending quality time with my wife is the highlight of my week
