Cheap Date Ideas

Everyone wants to go out and have fun when they're not at school/uni or working. Especially now that summer is well and truly getting started. However it can end up costing a pretty penny. As much as date night is a lovely thing to do with your spouse it's not cheap most of the time.
You want to keep having adventures with your significant other, if you don't then it's easy to end up sitting under a blanket and spending time together staring at your laptops. It's a proper dilemma isn't it. How can you still go out frequently together without breaking the bank?
I racked my brain, and believe me it took me a while to think of these, but with the help of my trusty Pinterest app I've devised for you a list of date ideas that don't cost too much money at all.
I'm not saying that all the date ideas below are completely cost free, some of them require a little money, some require none at all and a few of them only require one of you to drive.
Anyway I hope these are helpful to you!


  • Go to a nice park or river and have a picnic 
  • Set up a tent in your garden and sleep by the stars
  • Go picture taking around your city 
  • Go to a local park and play some sport
