The $28

So I was on IG a few days ago and stumbled across a very interesting post...... 


 

I reposted to my own social media to gather responses.... And I was slightly shocked.
With the average millennial being so creative (and broke, lets be honest..we are broke ), I was looking for answers that were a little well.....different than what I got...Especially after the all posts about the '$200 date' and what all a woman would have to do to receive a $200 date..... 

Now personally I have been on dates on the $100-200 range and some on the $20-40 range, (BIG difference I know) and contrary to popular belief I have had more fun on cheaper dates that have not required me to leave the comfort of my kicks and leggings .........


So since I LOVE a challenge (and saving some coins), I have created a list with links of $28 or less dates to take  Bae on this spring/summer 17.... You will thank me later..

  1. Groupon (one of my favorite sites ever) has a comedy show for two, for $15.... If the comic is funny or not, you can always bond over how good (or bad) this guys is and  still have $13 left over to blow....  
  2. One of my favorite places in Cleveland is the zoo ,and for $13.25 per person (and FREE on Monday) it could be one of yours!  
  3. I am super surprised how many people actually have never been to a drive in movie, especially because at $20 a carload (for TWO movies) it is actually cheaper than going to a regular movie, you can wear anything, and lets face it if you date a woman like me, the snacks will be cheaper because you never know what I will pull out my purse ....  
  4. The Cleveland of Museum of Art is FREE and has some awesome areas for picnics 
  5. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is $8 per person for  spontaneous Wednesday night (I really like museums ) 
  6. While I appreciate a good Netflix and Chill' session, it has been done to death..... Give Bae an experience, add some pillows/blankets, snacks, cocktails etc the thought and effort will be appreciated 
  7. Speaking of in home dates, take a trip to Five Below (or Michael's with coupon in hand of course ) and the grocery store to create a In Home Paint n' Sip 
  8. Chopped at home- I love the Food Network show 'Chopped' and saw on Pinterest where people actually created dates out cooking dinner from random items out of Chopped style box ..How cute is that??? So clip some coupons, clean out the fridge, hit the grocery store and get to work!  
  9. If you know cooking is not a strong point, Groupon has a Hibachi for Two for $13 in Cleveland.... 

So there is my list.... 
Now I can't say that this list was super easy however, I must admit $28 can go pretty far if you put your mind (and wallet) to it.... 


So yes $28 is enough to take a woman out on a date

  1. I think 6,7,8 are REALLY good suggestions. Puts a spin on the whole complaint that people son't appreciate the chill vibe anymore. But chill vibe doesn't mean that it should be void of intentional effort!
