Estimated Monthly Savings: $800
Dating is really fun sometimes, but it can also leave you feeling drained, financially and otherwise. When going on a date, most people just grab drinks. Not only does this get boring fast, but in some cities, a cocktail can cost more than $10! Â Check out these tips for planning a memorable but inexpensive date.
Free Museum Dates
Most major cities offer free entry to their museums either a few times a year or even a few times a month. If you and your date are lovers of history or art, this is a great option. Some museums even have events for adults with drinks and activities.
Thereâ€™s nothing like the great outdoors and luckily, most of the time being outside is free. Take your date on a casual stroll around your beautiful city or for a hike in the woods. If you have a dog, donâ€™t leave him or her out.
Going out to a nice dinner can be costly, but making dinner for or with your date is a fun, meaningful activity. Make a dinner of food popular in your culture to really stand out. Turn up the romance with a bottle of wine and flowers.
A date can cost anywhere from $50-100 or more. If you’re going on two dates per week, that can add up to $800 a month! Try keeping at least some of those dates within the less expensive activity ideas, and you will see a tremendous impact on your wallet. Plus, one of these unique ideas might just be what catches your date’s interest.
