Aiight…times are hard out here. I know more people who are unemployed, losing their houses, losing cars, having to cut back on nearly everything now more then ever. And if you’re not careful about how you handle your finances and your decision making during these times, this could very well be the season that destroys your marriage.
And I know a lot of couples who look at things like “well, if we don’t have any money we can’t have any fun” and in my opinion nothing could be farther from the truth! Because no matter how broke we are, we still gotta have fun right? There’s this crazy concept that you can’t have fun unless you’re spending money but like Jay Z said in “Song Cry”, “we was so happy poor, but when we got rich/that’s when our signals got crossed, and we got flipped.” So the moral is that you can still have fun, even when you’re hurting for money.
Here are 5 ideas I came up with for some cheap dates.
#5 The Smithsonian/The National Zoo: I know this is only for my DMV folk (cause if the museums and/or zoos in your city aren’t free most of ’em cost an arm and leg) but with over 19 FREE museums and a FREE zoo, is there any question why this is a great cheap date?
#4 Hit Up A Happy Hour: Aiight, I know this is the spot most folk go to get away from their spouse but wouldn’t it actually be dope to get off work and link up with your spouse? And who can beat half price appetizers and drinks?!?!?
#3 Netflix and Redbox Are Your Friends: Can you beat having over 1,000 movies at your fingertips for $8 a month and right out the box blu ray dvd rentals for $2 a night? Didn’t think so.
#2 Matinee Movies: Most movie theaters have matinees before noon for $5-$7. Who says a good movie date has to be at night?
#1 Have Sex: Duh. I know some married folk don’t have sex anymore but maybe if we did we’d have less affairs and divorces going on. Let’s try it out ya’ll….plus, it’s free!!!!!!!!
