Dating Cents: Budget-Friendly Date Ideas

While many are learning to be more fiscally responsible in these times and are cutting back on some daily or weekly pleasures such as coffee runs to Starbucks, eating out, entertainment events, etc. you don't have to let these cut backs affect your love life. You just need to have a little creativity. Here are some budget friendly date ideas.

  1. Go to an outdoor concert in your local city. Pack a blanket and some snacks and enjoy a free outdoor concert in your local community. Check out for listings in your area.
  2. Host your own wine tasting. Invite people over and require each guest to bring a bottle of wine and their favorite cheese. This is a great way to introduce your date to all of your friends and cost friendly event. The only cost being your contribution.
  3. Make a little Fondue. What's not to love about Fondue shared by two. And a way to impress with creativity without having to go to a Fondue restaurant. Make it yourself at home. Start the evening snacking on baguettes dipped in melted cheese and end it by dipping fruit into chocolate.
  4. Visit a Flea Market. Yes, guys may not like to shop. But, they may end up thankful in the end. At Flea Markets, there's something for everyone and plenty of things you never knew existed. It allows each person to discover things about the other. Maybe there is a hobby you didn't know about.
  5. Relive your youth on roller skates. Yes, go roller skating. A very inexpensive event but oh so much fun. Allowing for much interactivity. Top it off with a stop for dessert or coffee on the way home.
  6. Pick some fruit. Spend the day at a local fruit farm picking fruit and then topping it off with making something with it when you get home.
  7. Theater on a budget. Do you really want to see a musical or play but can't afford it. Check to see if you can buy tickets to a dress rehearsal or productions at local colleges. Its often a fraction of the price.
