People often equate the most meaningful dates to the most expensive ones, which is not always the case. 

Appreciation can be shown through thoughtful, planned out dates without breaking the bank. Whether it’s a first date or one of many, follow this guide and make it a memorable one. 

First, set a budget or acknowledge such. For this article, we’re going to stick with a $40 maximum. 

Now you should decide the occasion of the date. WIll this be a casual dinner, anniversary, birthday, first date, etc? This will decide the trajectory of how you plan and spend your money. 

Once you have decided on the occasion, you must decide on a location in order to begin the most important step, planning. 

In case you don’t have a clear location or direction, recognize your advantages, nature and art museums are always free. Ensuring that your location is free or less costly makes planning what to do on the date much simpler. 

If you are planning to go the nature route, plan a picnic with simple fruits, sweets, and drinks that you could obtain locally from your local grocery store within your budget. 

When it comes to dinner dates, use your resources to find tasty, yet cheaper restaurants where the view is nice and the vibe is fitting. 

Use this guide to show your special someone a great time, without breaking the bank.
