How To Spend Time With Your Partner Without Breaking The Bank

You do not have to be rich to enjoy the one you love. No doubt, financial-wise, things could be a bit challenging between you and your partner, but this does not mean that there are no creative ways for you to connect and show love to your partner.

Below are 5 ways to spend time with your spouse without having to spend too much money.

1. Movie Nights: Why spend money you do not have to go see a movie when you can just buy your favourite movie genre in DVDs and spend time together watching in the comfort of your home.

This way, you can both relax while wearing something comfortable, turn out the lights, and enjoy each other's company without distractions.

2. Home-cooked meals: Going with your date to romantic restaurants can get pretty expensive but this does not mean you cannot get the same romance effect for much cheaper.

How about you surprise your partner by preparing their favourite meals and making a beautiful spectacle of it with nice music, candle lights, etc. Your partner will appreciate this since it obviously took time and effort on your part to make this happen. The same thing cannot be said for a date in an expensive restaurant.


3. Take walks: Couple swear by the unique feeling of bonding that happens when they spend some time taking a walk during a nice weather. Walking with your partners, in the evenings or at the beach, for example, will give you both a chance to talk and catch up with each other.

4. Attend events: What better way to enjoy fancy food, fun dancing and a good time with your partner, than when someone else is footing the bills. You and your partner, whenever possible, can attend events such as parties, weddings, birthdays, together and enjoy a good time without worrying about the cost.

5. Games Night: One more way to have fun with your partner is dedicating some time to playing nice games in the comfort of your home.

If you are the more creative/adventurous type, you can even invent your own games. If not, then the usual card, words, video or board games will do. The excitement of competing with each other while also having a great laugh will leave you feeling relaxed and well bonded with your partner.
