Try this fun and cheap date idea for connecting with your spouse:
My husband and I love thrift shops. We never get tired of browsing through them hoping to find an unexpected treasure. For one date, we decided to take thrift-store shopping to the next level. We gave each other “thrifty makeovers,” selecting outfits for each other. I don’t think either of us had laughed so hard in our lives as we put on the outfits we had purchased. To top off the date, we grabbed a bite to eat wearing our designated attire. Of all our dates, this was the most fun by far. It was a comical, inexpensive and joyful date that we will always remember!
