With the Holidays approaching and the year coming to an end why not be more intentional about having a Date Night? I have been married for 15 years and we did not get started in a Date Night habit which we are starting to regret more and more each year. Originally we did not see the point in a set Date Night. We were home each day and night with each other and didn’t have the same distractions we have now. Romance is not my strong suit at all I will admit, but I do like to try new things from time to time. I also know as my children get older that soon we will be empty nesters and only have each other’s company once again.
So in honor of our marriage and the need for Date Nights we will be starting to try some frugal ideas that can be done at home even with children under foot. Our first installment of Frugal Date Night will be trying to learn to Merengue. We were given a copy of Merengue Dance Lessons – Learn To Dance Merengue, Beginning & Intermediate Latin Dancing: A Step-By-Step Guide To Merengue Dancing.
The instructors are very easy to understand and go slowly breaking each movement intosimple steps. I enjoyed watching the video and seeing how the professionals dance the merengue.
I really liked there passion for dancing and both instructors encouraging manner. I am not sure how well I will learn the merengue but I do see myself at least trying with this dvd again. My husband found the instructions straightforward and easy to understand as well. He chuckled when I told him about the review knowing how much effort dancing is for me. I was not born with a talent for dancing.
Taking time to learn a new skill is a great frugal date night activity, you can borrow a dvd from friends or the library. You can search on YouTube or purchase a dvd on Amazon via our affiliate link above.
Do you plan date nights with your spouse? Who does most of the planning? If you have children how do you arrange for care? Do you have children with Special Needs? How does that factor in for Date Nights?
