My husband, Reid, and I have been married for almost 9 years and we still take dating seriously! Every weekend we make time for “date night.” Gotta keep the love alive, you know?
This year we decided to make a separate category in our budget solely for date night. We set aside $100/month for dates. It’s not a lot when you consider a night out to dinner/movie/babysitter can easily hit $100. We have to be creative. We usually do a game night w/ another couple one weekend (we put kids to bed and the adults stay up and play), another weekend we have a date night “in” after the kids go to bed at home (usually take-out and cuddling up to a movie), then we do a couple weekends out w/ a babysitter (takes the bulk of our $).
