Creating quality time in a marriage or with a significant other is imperative to the strength of a relationship. But how to you stay on budget with everything else going on in your lives? Living on Love and Cents & Madame Deals have put together a great article for this weeks Dating on a Dime series:
This week my husband and I are doing a date that is a little different. I want to get some furniture for the play room. Normally I shop with my kids. That is very difficult to say the least. So today my husband surprised me with arranging for a his parents to watch the kids and we are going shopping.
Then we will finish off the night at a restaurant using the voucher I got from Groupon . It is for a new restaurant that we have been wanting to try. I was able to get a $20 voucher for only $10 this week. Since I have already spent the $10 we can eat $20 worth of food and only pay for the tip!
This is a great way to enjoy each others company while doing something that needs to be done. But by going to a little extra effort so that we can do it alone we can make it a great date day! And little out of pocket costs!
