Date Night Idea


I recently discovered all of the coupons in the back of the phonebook. So for date night we clipped a bunch of free or half-off dinners and drew one on our way to dinner. After dinner we went for a walk on a local trail and checked out our new very own Hurricane Wal-mart!

Total price of date: $16.71, including tip.

Got cheap (or even better—free) date ideas? Do tell!

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥

Hmmm....

Well yesterday I went on a bike ride and then had a picnic for a date. It was a double date and all that the other guy and I bought was most of the food (some I already had). The totally cost between us for food was about $11, and we could have done it in less.

Nice one. We used a two-for-1 dinner coupon for our date this weekend too. But then we went to a real movie instead of a $1 movie, so we blew it.

Each of my dates costs me not a thing. Mainly because I don't (or rarely) date. Easy on the wallet, not so much in that whole eternal progression department.

There is also the $5 footlong. And yet, there's something lost in the romance department when processed meat is involved.

Hubby and I love live music, so we go out often to Open Mics (you don't have to sing..you can just listen) or free concerts.

restaurant.com has gift certificates for a few local restaurants for a fraction of the cost. 10 dollars gets you 25 dollar gift card. we usually use those when we are traveling. you don't really know what the restaurants are going to be like, but we had good luck in san antonio.
