With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time for a date night. But what if you don’t have a ton of money? Check out my ultimate list of free date night ideas for over 100 great ideas.
So far we are doing really well with our 2018 challenge to not dine out for the entire year. Learn more about our goal here. Lucky for us, we never enjoyed dining out on Valentine’s Day anyway. The problem is that we did love getting take-out sushi, nearly $70 worth of food when we go all out and get the fancy rolls. Since we won’t be doing that this year, I wanted to share some of my favorite free date night ideas with you from some of my favorite bloggers.

Almost all of these are free, but even the cheap ones are super cheap.
My favorite one from this list is to play a board game together.
60 Fun & Cheap Date Nights for the Young and Young at Heart
I’m obsessed with this list of Fun and Cheap Date Night Ideas For College Students from College Life Made Easy.
Sure, the title says the ideas are for college students, but this thirty something year old mama likes these ideas too! The ideas are a little more “out there” and fun because everything is more fun in college, right?
My favorite one from this list is to stop by all the open houses in your area. This is something that Tom and I still do even though we have no intention of moving any time soon!
Oh, and she suggests board games too, but she suggests you add a twist to it: strip board games. Everything really was more fun in college.
23 Cheap and Free Date Night Ideas
I almost didn’t include this list of 23 Ridiculously Cheap and Free Date Night Ideas from The Krazy Coupon Lady because it’s pretty obvious that every single suggestion she makes is some sort of affiliate link. As a blogger myself, I know when a blogger is trying to sell me something. Even though I don’t want to buy anything she is selling, the ideas are still good ones.
My favorite from this list is to grab a blanket and look at constellations together. How romantic!
11 Date Nights for When your Broke
I love this title, 11 Date Nights for When You’re Both Broke from Bustle, because it’s so real. Sometimes you’re just too broke to pay for a date. This isn’t an ultimate list with anything crazy, but the ideas are still good.
I’m a fan of the nature walk idea from this post. We live so close to the beach that we do a lot of sunset beach walks for date nights.
10 Date Ideas You Can do at Home
Don’t want to leave the house? You’ll love this list of 10 At Home Date Night Ideas. My favorite is the indoor mini golf. I want to try this with my kids too!

Have a little bit of money to spend? Try these 33 Date Nights Under $20 from Coming up Roses that include everything from going out for dessert only to putting together a Goodwill shopping challenge.
Enjoy your date night! Have a fun one to add. Leave me a comment to tell me about your favorite cheap or free date idea.
