Need a new idea for a date with your spouse? Try a "thrifty makeover." This outing is cheap and fun and will bring laughter to your special time together.

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!

Take the thrifty date challenge

Try this cheap date idea or go on a date where laughing together is the goal. Sometime during or after your date, discuss these questions with your spouse:

  • What have been the most joyful times during our marriage?
  • What do you like most about my sense of humor?
  • How can we bring more fun into our day-to-day routine?
