Saving Money on Date Night but Still Having Fun, Day 3 (and Good Clicks for Your Weekend)
I’m all in favor of saving money on date nights… but still having fun!
Start your evening right with a healthy mentality. Laura Brotherson from Strengthening Marriages has some date night tips for stepping it up a notch. Check those out here.
1. Did you know that it’s Sherlock Holmes Week? This idea isn’t original, but it is oh so cute!
Here’s one from the Dating Divas – Just the Two of Us – Sherlock Holmes Date
Here’s one from RuralMom – Date Night: Sherlock Holmes and Beef with Stout and Dumplings
Whatever you decide to do, enjoy a little Holmesian fun at home with your honey!
2. I shared these two ideas back in April during my Love is in the Air Dare Challenge.

***$5 (or maybe a little more)*** Are you coffee or tea drinkers? Get inexpensive drinks at a local coffee shop or Starbucks. Bring a board game to play. Enjoy the atmosphere together. Often times coffee shops offer free entertainment too – like jazz nights or local bands. Check your local paper, on your city’s Internet webpage, or with the local tourism organization for more details.
***$3 or less*** Wendy’s has delicious 99 cent frosties. Head to your nearest Wendy’s and pick up a frosty for each of you or pay a little extra and share one together. Feed each other. Hold hands as you eat. Take a walk (weather permitting) or sit in your car with a little mood music on in the background. Enjoy the deliciousness of a frosty (for only 99 cents) and the company of your spouse (priceless).
