@Rock Hugger:  That’s awesome! 

 

I’d say any type of outdoor exercise can be a free date – hiking, biking, etc.  Bring a picnic lunch or dinner for afterwards.  H and I did this last week.  We drove to 8,000 feet where there is this beautiful lake and could escape the 100 degree weather that was plaguing our valley, did a hike, and had a picnic dinner on a picnic table.  Lakeside dining!

Grab some picnic food on sale at the supermarket and go to the park and find a place to chill. Way cheaper than lunch out at an expensive bar.

Cook together, make pizzas instead of buying Dominoes. For dvd nights swap dvd’s with friends instead of buying new ones.

Check out your town’s free concert/movie/play schedule.  In Boston, there is Shakespeare on the Common in July, and movies (Friday Flicks) and concerts at the Hatch Shell.  Smaller towns may not have it.

My FI and I often have game nights.  We (or maybe just me) LOVE playing games!

Free outdoor concerts! My city has these several nights a week!

 

Sit on the front porch. Preferably with a yummy beverage and/or snack. Make friends with your neighbors. Sit on their porch. They can sit on yours. Voila – convenient social circle!

I love cheap date threads. 

Driving around to the expensive looking homes in the city, free movie in the park night. Festivals with free admission, cooking in instead of eating out, board game nights with friends 🙂 

 

All so fun!

We are making photo albums and putting memory photos in frames, we just put together our engagement photos from New York. Loved doing that together. 

Next year, I can’t wait to do wedding projects together like making our invites, banners and our guestbook.

We have bad movie night.  Redbox movie $1 or less since we get money off each week since we gets texts with codes, a bottle of cheap wine about $6 and bad movie night is a go.  The wine makes the movie better as the bottle becomes more empty.

DH and I love working on our motorcycles together! We’re also fans of game nights, cooking together, movie nights, heading to the coast for some hiking, driving to Portland and walking along the riverfront, berry picking (Last time we went we got 5 lbs of Strawberries for $8!), and we also enjoy riding previously said motorcycles together. 🙂

We cook dinner together, did our save the dates together (took a few hours), take walks, take the dog down to the ocean and walk around, last night we bought some nice aromatherapy bubble bath and ran a bath with a bunch of candles and a couple beers – was really romantic and relaxing 🙂
