Romance on a Budget

Times are tough nowadays for just about everyone. The good news though is that your partner probably has the same financial concerns you do, so they can understand having to work romance in on a budget. If you are one of the many who are concerned with dating and having a romantic time while not spending the rent money to do so, you do have options. There are plenty of ways to still experience romance while saving your pennies. Just remember that it is not the amount of money spent that is important but the quality of time you spend together that counts.

When you are working on romance on a budget, you have to get a little creative. You can have a good time while spending very little or no money at all. A good way to get closer also is to discuss the issue. You are both probably aware of the necessity to save money so why not take some time to come up with creative low cost date ideas together? You can even make a list as a go to reference when you are at a loss as to what to do one evening. But, if you are still floundering for ideas, there are a few tried and true ones.

Most cities have some type of entertainment magazine that comes out monthly or even weekly. Start making a habit of picking that up and seeing what is going on in around your city. Often you can find new and exciting things to do at little to no cost. This is a great way to expand your horizons. Try poetry readings, free concerts, plays under the stars, political rallies or volunteer opportunities. You can also look for coupons and discount days to certain events.

If you really enjoy going to plays or musicals but they are a bit beyond your budget, look around for premier performances, open dress rehearsals and matinees. Sure, you may have to pay some money for a ticket but it is much more affordable than the premium tickets. Spend some quality time doing outdoor activities that cost nothing. Take a walk, bird watch, start a garden or play sports together. How about some romantic evenings at home? Make a carpet picnic with some snacks, something to drink and a favorite DVD to watch. You may not be going out but you can still be alone and have a romantic time. Just use your imagination and you can come up with some really creative ways to have some romance on a budget.
