A Couple Date: Vikings v. Chargers Preseason Game

Having a regular date night with my husband is important - especially since Emma came on the scene. But because we now live on one income, a fancy night out isn't always in the budget. So we are always on the lookout for fun, inexpensive activities that we can do together as a couple.

This week Derek and I went to a professional football game!

Normally that wouldn't be affordable for us on any given day. However, it's still preseason and we got a great deal on the tickets. Some of you are probably thinking that a preseason game is not as exciting as seeing a live game in regular season. You won't get any argument here. All I can say is:
  1. The stadium was less crowded than a regular season game, so we had plenty of room to spread out; we even got to move down to the 4th row for the last quarter.
  2. The stadium was also a lot less noisy than a regular season game.
  3. We didn't break the bank! In fact, we even had some money left for a pretzel and ice cream!
(Those are my 3 good things, if you couldn't tell! We had a terrific time!)

What is your favorite cheap date night activity with your spouse?


  1. Back when we were starting out and had no money, the hubs and I used to go to the dress rehearsal of a play. We got to see some professional performances for a fraction of the price.

  2. If it's a Saturday and we have nothing to do, my boyfriend and I head over to a local car dealership and test-drive the most expensive car we can take out of the parking lot. Fun times!!
