Here’s a “cheap date” idea:
The day started with a walk to get coffee. It was a sunny day and it was enjoyable to hold hands and talk about life as we walked calmly to get to our destination. We’d received a coffee card last month and had coupons so the coffee was completely free! An alternative would have been to brew a few cups at home and carry them! Very tasty. Then we had about a half hour to spare before the next part of the date, so we walked around the parking lot and looked for spare change. DH found a penny. I’d found 6 cents the day before- gotta keep your eyes peeled all the time I tell ya!
We also used this time to stop into a pharmacy and picked out cards for one another that we thought were cute. We didn’t buy them- just showed them to each other and kissed 🙂
Finally we rented a movie (we have a movie store pass- no cable!) and went home to watch it. Alternative would be picking out a cable movie, watching a favorite movie on VHS, or renting from the library (free!) together.
I’m a cheap date- what can I say?
