How To Plan the Best Date Night on a Budget
We all love the smell of clean laundry! I especially appreciate my sheets and blankets smelling it’s best! After a long day of work, I like to come home, relax and just enjoy my down time with my kids and wife. Some of our best memories together are watching a funny movie with my kids cuddled up with a fluffy, soft blanket! Or just relaxing at home with my beautiful wife having a date night at home! You don’t have to leave the house and go crazy to get that quality time together. I want to share with you How To Plan the Best Date Night on a Budget!
Get ready for the best date night
We are a family of 5, and we do a lot of laundries, I do about two loads a day. My kids play at school, then have sport practice every week, we all hit the gym or swim. The laundry is never ending! With all the strange smells we get, I want to make sure that when it’s done washing they are not only clean, but they smell clean too! That is why I trust and use Snuggle® Ultra Blue Sparkle fabric conditioner and blue iris bliss® Snuggle Scent Boosters® with Every single wash!

How To Plan the Best Date Night On A Budget!
It really does get more and more expensive now a days, (wow saying that makes me feel really old) to go out without the kids on a date night. Even for just 4 hours date nights can rack up to $100+! That is just crazy! At the same time my wife work so hard and I want to keep the romance going and keep our marriage strong! So I decided to come up with ways to still get our time alone together for Le$$! Here are a few options I had,
B. If that can’t work out either we have also just waited until all the kids were in bed and asleep and the date commence!
Step 2: I like to plan something different each time but usually when we have 3 hours to ourselves at home I will have an idea of what i want to make for a meal, and yes I clean up after myself as well! If we are short on time or its late in the evening I have done a simple chocolate fondue, with fresh fruits and sweets! Or on cold nights I will prep for a fire and we make s’mores! Even an easy crock pot chili will do the trick if she doesn’t have to cook!
Step 3: Grab the fluffiest, softest blanket you can find and the night or day before just give it a wash with both Snuggle® Ultra Blue Sparkle fabric conditioner and blue iris bliss® Snuggle Scent Boosters®! It will smell amazing and is very calming!
Step 4: Time for a movie and popcorn! Or another favorite is playing games! If it’s a warm Summer night we like to relax on our porch and just watch the stars and reminisce. On a very stressful week I love to pamper my wife on late night dates with a spa night, massage, bath with candles and soft music. You know your spouse better than anyone, pick one or two of their favorite and just do it! Marriage is filled with compromises!
With the help of Snuggle® Ultra Blue Sparkle fabric conditioner and blue iris bliss® Snuggle Scent Boosters® your night will get started right! Check out other ways Snuggle® can help you!

Date nights are something every couple to make time to have as often as possible.

I love this post

Great tips for date night for the whole family

Laundry, date night, huh? I do agree, you don’t have to spend a ton of cash to enjoy each others company.
March 15, 2016 @ 9:57 pm
Everything is so expensive. I’m a homebody and don’t mind staying in. Splurging on a nice meal and a show is fine. Once in a while.

It seems like people tend to spend more on a date when the relationship is new. A perfect date, to me, could be as simple as enjoying each others company.

Great date tips!

I will have to try those ideal game night we have not done in ages here

We should all make more time to spend alone with our spouses. It helps you remember why you love them and strengthens the relationship for those difficult times.

I’ve been married for 25 years. Dates are something we did way back when. I’m happy with a grilled beef tenderloin and a movie.

I love the fluffy blanket idea. Very cute. 🙂

Thank you for sharing. We have date night once a month. We have lots of fun just going out to eat.
March 23, 2016 @ 9:17 pm
Instead of going out, I’m happy to get some fast food and eat at home. I’m a cheap date.

Two loads of laundry a day! I get upset having to wash every third day.
March 27, 2016 @ 8:52 pm
I love the smell of freshly laundered clothing and bedding. It’s great to go to sleep in soft, clean smelling sheets.
March 29, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
I have yet to have a decent date night it has been quite a while. I love these snuggly tips.

I like to inflate the air bed, order a pizza and watch a good movie. I usually fall asleep before it’s over, but it’s enjoyable.

Date nights might be on the occasion, but are fun. I like to just make a nice dinner and catch a movie.

When I was younger, and couldn’t afford it I always looked forward to a night out. Now we can afford it and I’m content to stay close to home. Especially if we’re having a glass of wine with our meal. Neither one of us will drive, even after only one drink.

Board games are a favorite stay at home activity in our house. We love scrabble and boggle!
