Reader Tip: Save Money By Having “Date Mornings”
Christine emailed in the following tip:
We have all heard at one point that it is important to spend quality time with your spouse by having a date night — no kids, no distractions — just you and your spouse focusing on each other. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
If you are already doing this, that’s great! But if you are like me and my spouse, you might find that it’s difficult to make time for date night every week or every month.
Plus, it can be expensive. Pay a babysitter, go out to dinner, maybe a movie, gas… I am getting anxious just thinking about it! Furthermore, most nights I don’t have much energy after working, cleaning up the house, driving our daughter to her activities, fitting in dinner, weekly church events, and more.
My solution? Have a “date morning”. Our daughter enjoys sleeping in on the weekends, so we take advantage of this by getting up a little early on Saturday (7-ish) and enjoying a peaceful breakfast together, maybe a Netflix movie, or just talking. It costs us nothing, and we still fit in a couple of hours of “us” time. We also find it refreshes us and prepares us for the weekend! -Christine
