Date Ideas – $5 Or Less!

1. Gift Cards for Dinner:

You know those old gift cards you have lying around? Put them to use! We received a $50 gift card to PF Changs a gift a while ago, and with it we managed to get an appetizer, 2 entrees, and drinks!

3. Spend A Day At The Beach

4. Visit A Museum:

Many local museums offer free or cheap admission!

To save on movies, we ended up using 2 free passes that we had saved up. (We got it from being Regal reward members, it’s free!)

8. Redbox:

Don’t have movie free passes? Consider Redbox for only $1.50.
