Date night is important for any relationship, but you might be wondering how you can make time for each other without having to spend any money! If you’re on a budget or just trying to live a more frugal lifestyle, free date nights are definitely the way to go! There are a lot of different options for free date nights, so keep reading to get some ideas!
Spend it outdoors.
If you and your partner enjoy spending time outdoors, this is the perfect idea for a free date night! Whether you spend it taking a stroll through a park, camping, or just getting some fresh air, it’s guaranteed to bring you closer together! Weather permitting, you could also go for a swim together, go snowshoeing, or even hiking! Just pack a few snacks from home for your outdoor excursion and head out!
Make a trade!
Even if you find a totally free date idea, if you have to spend money on a babysitter, it can kind of put a dent in your budget! Consider trading date nights with another couple and trading babysitting services with each other so you don’t have to pay a babysitter or nanny! This is a great way to give back to each other and save money as well!
Consider a night in.
Of course, this post is about a night “out”, but sometimes a night “in” can be even better! Spend the night cooking dinner together! Sometimes spending a quiet night in is perfect for rekindling that spark and really focusing on each other. Whether you cook, order takeout, or even get a pizza delivered, pop on some Netflix or just spend the time enjoying each other’s conversation! This makes for a totally free date night (if you don’t order food), and can be some of the best quality time.
Find something great to give your time to as a couple. Whether it’s your local humane society, a soup kitchen, or an elderly home, finding something to do together to give back to your community can both make you feel good and bring you closer together! Besides, you could really enjoy it and decide to keep doing it on a regular basis!
