Dating on a budget can be hard because you are limited in the restaurants that you go to. I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to go to an expensive restaurant to have a good date. Lucky for us, spring is in full bloom and it’s the perfect time to be outside. Why not have a picnic for two?
You don’t need to spend much to have a great picnic; all you need is a basket of your favorite, inexpensive foods.
A good picnic should have drinks, a side, a main dish, and a dessert.
For drinks, one inexpensive choice is water. Just fill up a reusable water bottle from the sink and you are good to go! If you want something more than water, you can always make lemonade.
To make lemonade, you need five cups of water, one cup of sugar, and 3 freshly squeezed lemons mixed together in a pitcher.
For your side, pack a salad. To make a simple salad, chop up iceburg lettuce ($1.12 at Walmart), some tomatoes (88 cents per pount at Walmart), and cucmber (50 cents each at Walmart). If you don’t want to make one yourself, you can buy premade salads at Walmart for as little as $3.50.
For your main dish, try the favorite classic: peanut butter and jelly. Spread some peanut butter on one slice of bread and some jelly on another and then stick them together!
For dessert, try some jello. You can pick up a box to make some for under a dollar!
The whole meal shouldn’t cost you much and your date will be very impressed that you took the time to pack something for the two of you and thought it through. So on the next nice, sunny day, grab someone special and have a picnic!
