Have a Fancy Night In
If heading out to a fancy date just isn’t in the budget right now, bring the dinner-and-a-movie date to you. Resolve to feed, bathe and put the kids to bed early one Saturday, then get prepped for your fancy night in. Wear that Little Black Dress that’s been gathering dust in your closet. Make some gourmet popcorn ahead of time. Decide on the movie you’ll rent in advance (no getting dressed up just to flip through HBO channels!). Then, uncork your favorite bottle of wine and make the date night happen in your living room.
