Dating on a budget

So it used to be that my husband worked night shifts at his job and I worked day shifts at mine. He then got a new job that would mostly be during the daytime. Great! Right? Wrong. I started to then get scheduled for night mostly. Also he always seems to be working on my days off and vice versa. He’s usually asleep by the time I get home or gone by the time I wake up in the morning. Needless to say, we may get to see each other but it’s not quality time. 

Our other issues is that when we do finally have time off together, we don’t really feel like going out. Not to mention we are kind of …. Well money is tight. So what are some things we can do together that we don’t usually do without spending all the money on a date we don’t want to go out on? 

  1. Movie night: pick a movie that we both haven’t seen before, make a snack, enjoy. Simple but still fun. 
  2. Cook dinner together: Not something you usually make. Find something that takes a recipe and make it interesting. 
  3. Make a picnic in the living room: move the furniture out of the way, grab your lunch, put out a blanket, have fun without bugs.

These are just a few things that I have come up with. Share in the comments some of your ideas.
