Here is a quick but fun date that won’t break the piggy bank. It’s in 2 parts.
Each of you start off with $10. Head out to your closest Dollar Tree, really find the one where everything is a dollar. Now head on in and know that you each have 15 minutes.
Now once in there, you two separate. The goal of this part of the date is for each of you to find 10 items that tell the story of your courtship/wedding/marriage/family…whatever it may be, but you are limited to only 10 items to tell this story. Try not to cross paths or peek into each other’s baskets. Instead, be creative and think outside of the box.
Try to check out without seeing what the other person has purchased.
Head back home, spread out a blanket in the middle of the living room/den and take time to tell your story. The person who starts is the one who checked out of the Dollar Tree last. During this time, take time to reminisce and explain why you chose what you did. Remember why you had a tenacious pursuit of each other. This is the time to not judge or cast sarcasm, but listen to the heart of your spouse as they reflect back on your life together.
Now I said this was a two part date night…however, it’s up to you both if this becomes a three part night!
