Date Night on a Budget- FALL EDITION

Date Night

Finding a sitter for a date night with Superman is the darndest thing. (That’s southern for RIDICULOUSLY HARD.) The list of people I will allow to keep my kids is pretty small anyway, so when we find out we are going to get a date (I.E. Two hours beforehand because our jobs are so last-minute), we call all five people in hopes of nailing someone down. On the rare occasion that happens, we have made no plans, and end up driving around aimlessly wondering what we are going to do until we run out of time and have to go home. Fun, right? Yeah.

So I had to think hard about this, seeing as how I’m not the most well-adjusted person when it comes to spur-of-the-moment things (Odd, since I’m a Realtor, huh?). But, alas, I did it. I compiled a list of date nights that won’t break the bank, but can be a lot of fun during the autumn time.

Go To a High School Football Game

It’s getting chilly out right about now. Take a blanket and some sweaters and go cheer on your local high school team. Snuggle up with some popcorn and share a coke to bring back that old feeling of high school dating. BONUS POINTS IF THE CUTE BOY KISSES YOU!

Catch a movie at a local Drive-in

Our local drive-in theatre offers two ‘new release’ movies per night. Its $9/person to get in. Back up the truck and put some pillows in the bed with a blanket and you get to see two movies for the price of one. There’s just something about the bed of a hot guy’s (read: husband’s) truck…

Pumpkin Carving

Grab a couple gourds and have a contest. Make a family of pumpkin people. Then roast the pumpkin seeds and settle in to a redbox. This is one of our favorite parts of fall.

Go to a local coffee shop

In almost every town is a small coffee shop that has free wifi. Go sit and drink coffee together. Sit at a two-seater table and just talk. Put your phones away and talk about whatever. Or sit on the couch that is inevitably in the coffee shop, get out your tablet, and check out dream homes.

Christmas Shop

Christmas is inching its way closer and chances are you haven’t done your Christmas shopping. Take a trip to the mall together and pick out a couple gifts for family or friends to get ahead of the game and put yourselves in the holiday spirit. Watch what your husband is eyeballing, too. His wandering eyes will give you a clear idea of some good gifts to buy for him. (If he is anything like my hubs, it is INCREDIBLY hard to buy him gift.)

There ya go! If you think of some other ideas that are good for colder weather, post them below! I’d love to hear what you and your man do together!

Love to my loves

    Might I suggest making a bucket list of places or things you’d love to do as a couple. May not particularly be on a budget, but it would give you ideas for those last minute dates 😁

      Christy,
      That is an awesome idea. Can’t believe I never thought of that. We used to have a “date night” jar, but it all required planning, which usually doesn’t work out for our date night. It was a bust. Thanks for the awesome suggestion.
