54 Cheap Date Ideas That Will Excite And Keep Your Spark On Fire

Cheap Date Ideas. We have all been there where we are trying to figure out something to do for the evening and we are at a loss of fun and frugal things to do.

Ideally when you are trying to save money the best way to do so is by discovering creative ideas for cheap date nights at home. But what if you are wanting to do something different and you’re looking to get out of the house?

I created an extensive list of cheap and creative date ideas that are sure to spark some adventure and fun!

A quick back story about us! The mister and I have never been huge talkers, we are quite comfortable spending an evening together with very little conversation. 

I know I know! Some people can’t imagine the thought of silence but for me, I enjoy the quiet times. I enjoy the evenings where there is very little to do and we are able to chill out and just relax.  

However, don’t get me wrong, even though we aren’t always the biggest of talkers we definitely enjoy a good time out. We value the time we spend together and always have a great time doing something new and different.

Because I’m always looking for the best ways to be frugal and save money I decided I’d create a list of the best cheap date ideas to help my readers with creative date night ideas.

Sometimes the ability to spend time together gets the best of us, it’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. There are a million things happening at once and at times we can forget to spend quality time with our special someone.

Planning a fun date night will help you relax and just enjoy some quality time together. Date nights don’t have to cost a lot, take a lot of planning, or require you to dress up.

Just plan something simple and fun, just for the two of you!
