Inexpensive ways to date your husband (or wife/boyfriend/girlfriend)

One thing my husband and I don't do nearly enough is go out on date night. We're pretty busy around here with work (my husband), our almost 1 year old, family and friends, not to mention that we're trying to cut back on dining out & entertainment, that we normally don't make it a point to go out for a date. But hopefully that will change in the near future!

Redbook magazine has 26 ideas that are an inexpensive way to go out on a date with your significant other. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Make a weekly date to end the weekend with a late-night arm-in-arm stroll together, even if it’s just around your backyard. Get in sync by matching your steps.
  • Multitask clearing out the fridge by packing up all the leftovers for a picnic. Add your best china and glassware, and then make a date to meet at your local park during your lunch hour.
  • Take a stroll through a house you’d (someday) love to own. Check out the real estate listings for weekend open houses so you don’t have to deal with a hard sell from the agent
