Yes! I renamed the challenge! :)
I decided to do this challenge for a few reasons.
One of them being that I am currently doing the 52 Week Money Challenge. (http://doublesavingdivas.com/2013/01/08/52-week-money-challenge/) with a few friends.
Also I wanted to challenge myself to make the most of the time I spend with my sweetheart. We have a wonderful time with each other. I want to continue to make fond memories to reflect upon. :)
Lastly, I am a very frugal young woman being that I pay for my own education, I am ALWAYS looking to spare a couple of dollars. *Ahem, ain't nothing wrong with saving some cash!*
Kiesha & I had a conversation about adjusting the amount marker for the challenge to $20 instead of $10 because... "we love to eat!"
So do I! *rubs tummy slowly*
For 3 Months & 12 dates you must record in a note or post a photo of your frugal date. With each posting, please include your date activity, meal and cost.
At the end of challenge thank Noah & I for making your pockets fatter! LOL..
At the end of the challenge, the last couple or person standing will receive a FREE $20 gift card!
WOOT! FREE MONEY!
(You must complete 12 DATES to be selected!)
I would suggest that you all make use of blogs, Groupon, your local library, and even Craiglist to explore ideas for your dates.
Here's a date example:
*Note: I am a weirdo. I love to do odd things so keep in mind that your dates (being with/out a partner can be as strange as mines or weirder. LOL)
Saturday: Selecting a Wine for a Later Date at Trader Joe's : $9, Villa Alena Moscato d'Asti
Jazz Music at the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe, Admission: FREE!
Spray Roses: ??? *Noah surprised me with FLOWERS!
2 Glasses of Wine : $10
Dinner at Hot Tacos: $ 6
$25 (over) whomp, whomp!
*I told my sister about this date and she said, "Who eats tacos after a glass of wine?!" Well, we do. LOL*
I found a couple links that may help you guys out!
