Looking for something fun to do with your partner but don't want to spend tons of money? The solution to that is going out on cheap dates. Dates don't always have to be expensive. Even though the weather has changed, you can still do fun things together without spending a lot of money.

I love finding new things to do with my boyfriend every weekend that we're off. Other than myself, my boyfriend is my photographer and so I consider moments that we are capturing images for my blogs or social media, to be cheap and quick dates. If you look at it, we are spending time together and talking, the perfect date idea for me.

Check out this cheap date ideas to do indoors together:

  1. Wine tasting

  2. Skating

  3. Bowling

These are all great and cheap date ideas for the fall. Regardless if you're newly dating, been in your current relationship or you're married. Dates should be engaging so put your phones down and interact with your partner. You don't always have to go on elaborate dates with your partner, sometimes simple and cheap dates, are better.

I had so much fun with my boyfriend at a free to enter pumpkin patch we went to a couple of weeks ago. We bought two small pumpkins, a pumpkin carving kit at Walgreens all for under $20. We enjoyed picking out the pumpkins we wanted, captured some cool pics and carved them out later that evening, together.

Another cheap date that I enjoyed was when we went for a drive around the city, bought some Chinese food, we pulled over by the water at City Park and ate our food, right there in the car. We sat there for about a hour just enjoying each others company.

You know I love wine, every now and then, my boyfriend and I will create our own cheese boards, to go with my wine as we Netflix and chill. Cooking with your partner is so fun to do. My boyfriend does these funny dances while he cooks. There is never a dull moment with him in the kitchen. I'm the master chef between the two of us, so it gets real competitive at times but we enjoy cooking together.

Throw your hoodies on and go for a walk or bike ride together. Bigger cities have bikes that you can rent by the hour or for a full day, if you don't own a bike. Not only are you exercising together, but you're spending time together. Be a tourist in your city or town together by walking around neighborhoods that you don't visit often.
