  • I love to grab a pizza, go to the park, and feed the ducks/watch the kids play. It only costs the pizza and the bread.

    If you can pull off a sitter, I love to go watch people sing Kareoke (sp) All the cost is a couple of drinks, and usually its pretty entertaining.

    quote if you want!

  • free ideas -

    family picnics @ the park (FREE + COST OF FOOD), movie night @ home after the kids bedtime;) (FREE + COST OF MOVIE & REFRESHMENTS), go see a local live band play (FREE + DRINKS),

    not too expensive -

    bowling, skating, swimming, mini golf, zoo, aquarium, museum, & of course out to eat @ a fav restaurant, etc...

    yes you can quote me.

  • Every wednesday is our date night, we think of a new reasonable restaurant to try out, that is our time to catch up on what's going on for the week and how each one of us are doing. It has helped our relationship to be able to have that time together.

  • My parents live on an acrege just out of our hometown. When we want a cheap, easy getaway, we go out there (with their permission of coarse). They have a sauna tub,( for two!), a swimming pool, a bonfire pit, and plan to get a hot tub (yeah!). Sometimes we take our kids, sometimes they take our kids (usually camping) with them for fun. We always clean up after ourselves, but it's a nice quiet getaway.

    sure, quote.

  • I signed up with a few secret shopping sites and pick-up restaurant shops. Not only do we get reimbursed for the meal, I get a little extra to spend on me! I get paid to go on dates with my husband!!!

  • FOr me inexpensive is renting a movie, which is like $3 and making a romantic dinner at home. Now that's cheap and romantic and leave kids with a free babysitter, grandma!! U can quote me :)

    Without the kids: There are lots of aquariums that have a day of the month for free!! Where i live in Southern Cali they do and we get to see sharks and have a good time for FREE.
