Watch TV Together

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 TV nights.  This is the kind of date that's wonderful for when you've hit a rhythm with your significant other and want to start establishing some rituals (or creating new ones, for you who have been together a long time).

 Hopefully, the two of you have at least one similar TV taste in common!  Pick a TV show that you both enjoy and set it as the focal point of your TV night dates.  If you can't agree on anything you both already watch, find a show neither of you has seen that intrigues you both and start watching it.

 Commit to every week.  Whatever night and time the show airs, that's when your date will be, and it will be consistently then every week!  You'll need to be able to commit to that night for sure every week (that it airs), and your date will need to do the same.  Though it's a small commitment, it is a way to put each other first.

 A lot of TV shows are half an hour, and even the longer ones cover just an hour.  Unless that's all the time you can spare for your weekly date, make it special somehow besides just watching the TV show (since, after all, you may watch TV all the time anyway).  For example, play some sort of game around it, like a trivia game or a game inspired by the show itself.  Or you could cook something related, if it's a cooking show or if the characters regularly eat.

 If it turns out that you both have irregular schedules and can't know for sure if you'll be available when a certain show airs, use a show already out on DVD.  That way, you can set your own schedule.  Just make sure you keep it a weekly thing so you can establish it as a routine! has lots to offer you as someone trying to live frugally in a tight economy!  Visit us today.
