When you have kids at home (especially if said kids are too young to stay home alone), it can be difficult to get away for a date night. And if you (like we are) are living on a tight budget, finding a couple extra bucks to spend on a date night can be an even greater challenge. But it is possible to create big romance on a small budget, and “$10 Great Dates” has 52 date ideas to get you started – one for every week of the year!

Learn How to Date Your Spouse for $10 or Less:
Money is definitely one of the biggest obstacles in my excuse book when it comes to not having a regular “date night” with my husband. Living on a (self-imposed) tight budget, I struggle to be able to justify spending money on myself or for “fun.”
And when you start to add up the “expenses” involved in having a date night, the roadblocks just keep growing:
- Childcare for 3 kids: $20+
- Dinner for 2: $30+
- Additional Entertainment: $20+
While I know the importance of dating my spouse, it’s difficult to make it a priority when it is so costly financially. That’s why I’m so excited about the date ideas in $10 Great Dates – none of them cost more than $10, and there is even a section of “At Home” date ideas that are perfect for seasons of “no spending” due to tight finances.
