Budget date night at home. Movies and Ice Cream.

Date nights can get expensive and make a big impact in your budget. Since Ben and I are in retirement savings mode, we like to prioritize where the money is spent. At home date nights are an easy way to cut costs and still flirt and snuggle with your man. Win. Win.



Movies, a snack and your favorite snuggle blanket is all you need for this budget date idea.

While I sit and wait for Blockbuster to come back here are some cheap ways to rent/watch a movie:

Netflix, Redbox (although they keep going up in price), and your ‘free’ movie channels on TV. Always sign up for Redbox emails or the app. They often have a discount movie rental or a free one.

You can always raid the discount bin, go to garage sales/auctions beforehand (people sell movies for almost nothing at these) or even “rent” (check out) movies from your local library.

Speaking of movies. What’s your favorite new movie?!
