Dating on A Dime: The Perfect Date for Under $5

Posted on Jul 15 2011 - 9:29am by Heather Brummett

How long has it been since you and your “other half” were on a date? Seems like everyone is cutting back their spending and trying to save more. But it is so important that we continue some things like spending quality time with our significant other. Not only do we deserve it, we NEED it! Madame Deals and Living on Love and Cents have teamed up to bring you Dating on a Dime. Go here to see the previous posts.


This week we tried something fun and different.  We have been married 9 years and so sometimes we find ourselves in a rut. It was actually one of my favorite dates to date. And you can do this too!

We dropped the kids of at the grandparents for 1 hour. We didn’t have much time but it was actually just enough for what we had planned. Being single is so hard… First stop was Quiznos. We used these Quiznos coupons to get use 2 meals (2 drinks and 2 subs) for under $5! We got the subs to go and drove to our next stop. We drove to our neighborhood park. The timing was perfect since it was about sunset AND it was not crowded. In fact there was no one there!  We set at a picnic table and enjoyed the perfect scenery and enjoyed each others conversation!

It allowed us time to talk and discuss everything that was on our minds. We could eat in peace and really focus on each other. We spent very little on dinner and used very little gas by staying in the neighborhood. If you have more time you could drive to the beach, lake, or other romantic spot and do the same thing.
