When having a night out on the town costs more than you make in a week, you may want to look for more affordable ways to enjoy the company you keep. With a little research and understanding of similar likes and dislikes one can thoroughly enjoy a night on the town.
When I think of enjoying my company to the fullest, I often think about the costs associated with the activities. I want to enjoy myself and my company to the fullest but I also do not want to stretch a tight budget to the extreme. There are several ways in which to accomplish a great time.
Movies are a generally an ideal date opportunity for already established relationships. Taking a new date to the movies does not allow for easy communication. The cost of the movie should balance out with a light meal such as fast food. The environment offers a constant change of guests thereby encouraging good communication with your company. The total cost for two people is in the area of $40.
If you want to dine at a better establishment, then perhaps you should choose a lighter activity such as miniature golf. Miniature golf can be a light and fun time. With each new hole, the laughter can continue as the misses pile up. If miniature golf suites you but you cannot afford an expensive dinner, why not top the evening off with an ice cream date at a local shop such as Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins or a similar location. This is ideal to lessen any awkwardness during the date. Ice cream has the ability to bring out the kid in all of us. It keeps the date light and fresh. The total cost here can range from $25-$75.
Love the outdoors, you really may be interested in picking up sandwiches at a local shop and meeting at a park where you can stretch out and relax. Enjoying the great outdoors can not only be refreshing but it also allows for a more relaxed and enjoyable environment. A park delights in offering long walks, beautiful scenery and a common bond among your company. If selecting a park, be sure to let your company know so they can dress appropriately. The total expected costs here could be as little as $15.
Whatever your circumstances are, there is always an affordable and enjoyable way to stay within your budget. Allow your creativity to flow and think outside the box for the best entertainment and memorable time.
