*This is a collaborative post*
Whether you’re saving for a mortgage on your first home together or you want to put some money aside to start a family or pay off debt, money saving can be tough. It is however still really important that you make some quality time together as a couple. Even just a couple of hours a month where you switch off from everything else and just focus on each other for a while can be beneficial. Here are 5 money saving frugal date ideas for couples.
1. Homemade cinema
The cinema is getting expensive in my opinion (I’m not a massive fan of the cinema though). I’d much rather be snuggled up on our own sofa watching a film on Amazon Prime or a DVD. If you’re lucky enough to have an awesome T.V such as an Oled TV Panasonic then you’ll get even more of the cinema experience. Just add a nice big bag of popcorn and you’re good to go!
2. Eat al fresco
A homemade picnic at a local park or maybe at the beach is a perfect date night idea. Depending on the time you do this you could mix in a nice romantic sunset too.
3. Go for an evening stroll
A nice walk around your neighbourhood together in the evening is a great way to spend time with each other out of the house.
4. Play board games
Board games are great for date nights. Grab some snacks and play Monopoly or trivial pursuit.
5. Make a romantic dinner together
Making dinner is going to save you so much compared to going out for dinner. Making dinner together gives you a chance to work together as a couple. Try one of these frugal recipes.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. There are so many other great free/cheap date night ideas I’m sure.
