Living a frugal lifestyle but still want to treat your special someone to a wonderful evening?  No problem!  There are lots of cheap date options out there; it's a matter of making them happen!  You may feel pressure to take your date somewhere that costs way more than you can afford, but just remember -- if they don't have the spunk to try out something different and be willing to live life frugally, well, you may not be able to get along anyway.

Cheap Dates are great for first dates, tenth dates, or I-can't-rememberth dates!  Whether you've been married for years or are just starting to get to know your significant other, these inexpensive outing options can be great fun.

This time in Cheap Dates, we'll take a look at reading aloud together.  Whether you prefer sultry poetry, the drama of a modern play, or the tantalizing adventure of a classic adventure novel -- or something in between! -- you and your date can enjoy a little verbal adventure without leaving your warm living room.

Choose a book that you both want to listen to, something you don't argue over and that neither of you hates.  If you're having issues coming up with something, ask someone for a suggestion that you've never heard of and read that together; chances are, you find something you both enjoy that you never would have considered!

Find a cozy spot to snuggle up.  Depending on how you prefer to read aloud, one of you may want to cozy up in a beanbag or an armchair while the other stands in front of them; or, you may enjoy cuddling while you read.  To give your read aloud adventure some dignified authenticity, track down a room with a roaring fireplace.

Take turns reading to each other.  You can alternate chapters, poems, books, or even character dialogue and lines of narration, if you want a more back-and-forth experience.  Use your best reading voice, and dazzle your date with the words you're pulling from the page.  If you're the one being read to, don't forget to gaze adoringly at your significant other!

Be dramatic!  Don't be shy when you're reading -- let out your inner actor or actress.  Act as if you were on the stage, and the book was your script.  Putting your heart into what you're doing will let your date know that they're important enough for you to risk making a fool out of yourself! has lots to offer you as someone trying to live frugally in a tight economy!  Visit us today.
