NO BABYSITTER REQUIRED: AT-HOME DATE NIGHT IDEAS FOR PARENTS

cheap fun dates for parents

When you have kids, the cost of date nights can almost crush you.

You pay for so many things. There’s the babysitter, dinner, movie, drinks, coffee – the cost of the night, and the pressure to make it worth it, mount. A “traditional” date night of dinner and a movie could shake out like this:

  1. babysitting (6 hours @$7.50): $45
  2. nice dinner (with wine, dessert and coffee – plus tip): $80
  3. movies (at least we don’t need to buy snacks after that dinner!): $25

That’s $150! For one measly night out.

Now, of course, we could eat a less fancy dinner.  A fast food meal would cut this evening’s cost down – with shorter babysitting time and a cheap meal – probably half the cost. But, really, would that even feel worth the $75?

Enter “At-Home Date Nights”. Put the kids to bed, break out the low-to-moderate-cost idea list and remember what it is like to be a couple again.
