Budget Date Night Ideas

Posted on July 25th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

Taking the time and money to take your spouse out is hard in our busy society, but it helps remind them how much they mean to you. Date night doesn’t mean it has to break the bank! Remember whether it is free or costs the world, a date is only as good as the thought put into it.

Budget Date Night Ideas

Star Gazing
Grab a couple of blankets, spread them out in your backyard and gaze up at all stars and planets in your night sky.  Did you know there are even apps available (such as Skyview which is available for iPhone and Android),  that when pointed to the sky, will help you decipher what you are looking at?  So fun!

 

Bonfire and S’mores
Light up the backyard fire pit and get to cooking while sharing a drink and laughs– and remembering why you fell in love in the first place!

 

Antiquing or Thrift Store Shopping

Take a walk through local antique or thrift stores and talk about all the quirky things you find.  Better yet — purchase an item to redo and upcycle together!

 

Volunteer
A great way to enjoy each other’s company as well as give back to the community is to look for volunteer opportunities.  Check with your local animal shelter or other community organizations such as Red Cross.

 

Ghost Hunt
Take to the internet and search for possible haunted locations in your area.  Everything from an old abandoned insane asylum to the local legends surrounding your local watering hole can be fodder for the best “hunt.”

 

Treasure Hunt
Create little cards with clues on them to lead you from the starting point to your ultimate destination.  You can keep it small by keeping it around the house or let it grow to something that covers the whole city.  A cute twist would be to have the “treasure” be something that holds significance for the both of you, such as the place of your first date.

 

Remember, it is always the thought that counts.  Whether you are going on your first date or celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary just being together and enjoying each other’s company is the goal.  Think outside the box and remember to have fun no matter how you spend your time with the one you love.


How to Save on School Supplies

Posted on July 24th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

In the midst of summer vacations and days at the pool it is hard to be thinking about purchasing back to school supplies.  The truth is, though, that school will be back in session before we know it — and you don’t want to be caught off guard and blow your budget.   School supplies can add up fast, especially if you’re buying for multiple children –so keep these tips in mind while you’re out and about.

Check Your Stash

Look around your house and see what school supplies you might have packed away in the closet or office somewhere.  This includes those supplies from last year (or previous years) that are gently used and able to be used again.  Rulers, backpacks, scissors and pencil boxes are all great examples of supplies that can be used over and over again.

 

Thrift Stores or Garage Sales

Thrift stores and garage sales are great places to find school supplies for cheap! Many times they will even be brand new.

 

Shop Discount Stores

Dollar Stores have a wide array of school supplies and organizational tools for a fraction of the cost of big box stores.

 

Don’t Forget Your Coupons!

Coupons are your best money saving friend for everything else, why not school supplies?  This time of year coupons for school supplies are easily found.

 

Take Advantage of Sales

Retailers want your business, so they’re dropping their prices on school supplies competing for your business.  Take advantage of these sales when they happen and stock up!  Some stores may offer additional discounts when you purchase in bulk so don’t be afraid to ask.

 

Know Your Prices

Piggy backing on my previous point, it is important to know the different prices and sales that your stores are offering so you know what is a good deal is when you see it.  The best way to do this is to create a Back To School Price Book, where you can write out your school lists and the prices of your stores.  This will also help you to stay on track and not purchase school supplies that you do not need — as well as helping you out when it comes to price matching.


Camping on a Budget

Posted on July 20th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

Summer is here and you’re looking for things to do with your family that won’t break the bank.  Taking the time to get away from work, school and everyday obligations, is hard enough, but then  thinking of the money it is going to cost to get away makes it even harder.

Camping is a great way to get away from everything as well as allowing you to really enjoy your time together and not be distracted by everyday life, including your wallet. Planning and preparation are key to making it a money-saving success.

Camping on a Budget

 

Create a Checklist

Lists are your best friend! Create a camping checklist before you start packing to make sure that you don’t forget anything and have to pay exorbitant prices from the campground to get it.

Purchase Pre-Owned or Slightly Used Gear
Check out local garage/yard sales, websites such as Craigslist, or even find local “online garage sale” groups on Facebook.

Use Household Items
There is no need to purchase eating utensils, plates, pots, pans, when you already have those things in your kitchen cabinets.

Create a Camping Tote
Have a tote that is used year to year especially for camping trips.  Instead of purchasing temporary items to cover everything you will need, purchase items that will last and can be used year to year.

Prep your Food
Prepare your menu plan just as you normally would, and prepare anything you need to in advance.  Instant Oatmeal packets, muffins and granola are great protein packed breakfast ideas that cost very little.

Location
Pick a camping location that has things to do.  This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to camp in a resort, but camp close to water or a state park so you have built in entertainment that won’t cost additional money.

A couple other tips to remember. Keep your wood pile covered with a tarp to keep it from getting wet or damp from a pop-up storm.  Also, try to set up camp in the shade as much as possible to avoid the heat and and having to replenish the ice in your cooler as frequently.
