Ok so Date Night was starting to be a little…non existent in our house. We were just busy-then we would go out and spend too much, then we were trying to save money, then we were busy-and it pretty much goes up and down and schedule changes, kids, grandkids, etc
My husband and I prepare a budget each week, and I decided to put $100 for a Date Budget. It could be bigger, or smaller-but if I didn’t do something we would be skipping it because it really takes effort to be consistent in dates.
Here is an example of how we did our first $25 Date
Chile Colorado (SOOO GOOD) My husband got Steak, Chicken, and Shrimp Fajitas
I used Groupon and bought a Vallejo’s Groupon ( I used 20% off code) and it was $13 for a $30 Groupon. We ordered about $33 of food and it was $5 more plus tip! So we did that for $25!
We also have Movie Pass Membership where we pay $9.95 a month for 3 movies. I take that out of our Entertainment category out of our budget. So we went to the movies and saw Crazy Rich Asians -which was great!
Date #2-My husband planned it, and I told him to stay in the $25 range.
He totally copied me! At first a was a little mad about that, but I had a REALLY great time!
He got the Logan’s Roadhouse Groupon for $12 (Use SUPER20)
My husband and I are doing the Keto diet, so he got a steak dinner and I got a chicken meal. I love Caeser salad and chicken and grilled veggies keeps me where I should be. If you aren’t on a diet-they have the BEST rolls!!! Plus their burgers, entrees, salads are all around the $14.99 range.
After Logan’s we went and saw the movie SEARCHING-It was a GREAT movie-I held my breath the entire time too!!!
So this week-it is my turn to plan, and it won’t be a movie or a Groupon deal-so we shall see what happens!
