|DATING ON A BUDGET
Wednesday, September 20, 2006
Well to begin there are a lot of frugal and budget tightwad things to do for dating. For instance, take a walk in the park and find a quiet spot for a picnic and nature sighting with opposite sex. Me I have all my dates at his house or mine. We watch a movie we already have usually rated G or PG, since I am a Christian I only date Christians. You can choose who to date. Don't let any one bully you into dating someone you don't want to date that is no fun.
Save money by eating at each others house. You can also bring left overs or sandwiches or anything home made on a picnic with a basket or bag it. Just spread a blanket on the ground and you have it made for a picnic date.
Another idea is group dating or in my case go to a social club for people with Specific and Long Term Mental Depression (illness) and food if you are both members that is good. Support groups also can be an excellent dating source since everyone there is on the same page so to speak. They usually have a potluck or dance twice a year. Again bring leftovers enough to feed some people and yourselves. This can cost a little or a lot.
Getting there is half the fun I always quote. Use the bus if neither one of you drive. This can be done free or for a small amount of money to pay for a monthy pass. If you are a college student use your ID to get free bus rides and other things at school like movie entrance on the college grounds. Ride bicycle too if you want an outing make it a bicycle built for two. A scooter moped can be rented by the hour too if you have enough money.
Make the most of your time together. Check out more ideas in The Tightwad Gazette I,II,III, & IIIV (1,2,3, & 4). You can get this book on ebay cheaply all it cost is what is said on the sale page on-line. You can pay by money order if you have no paypal account or credit card. I, however, think money order is the way to go for infothis girl/woman. There is a lot of cheap things to do in the book called TightwadGazette in it. It is my motto for living too. If you order on ebay via money order all you have to do is wait up to 9 days in the USA and 21 days internationally for your product to come to you. It's worth the information to wait that long otherwise there is next day mail which cost a pretty penny, especially overseas delivery costs.
Finally for frugal fun my dates and I go shopping at The Family Dollar Store in Moorhead, MN on Highway 10 East Mall for picnic items of food, which we take to the parks again via bikes, bus, or driving. Also each others home. Trust in God is another quote I live by and he provides.
Well good luck with discovering frugal and tightwad and fun creative ways to date.
