Ten Things we Learned from a Year of $20 Dates

We've made a lot of mistakes in our attempt to do a weekly $20 date. Find out how you can benefit from them.

A year ago, date night was not on the calendar.

I was frustrated.

I missed getting dressed up and exploring around town. I missed escaping with my Hubby. I missed date night!

"It's too much money," Hubby felt like the bad guy telling me that all the time,  but he knew we couldn't fit $50-$100 in our budget every weekend.

Until the day I came up with the idea for 20dollardatenight.net.

That changed everything. 

Since then, it's been a whirlwind in the midst of kids and jobs and life. Still, we feel like we've barely tapped the surface of where we want to go with this blog and our date nights.

I can't believe it's been one year already since we started going on our $20 dates. Since then, we've met all kinds of fun people, online and in person. We were even featured on the radio and TV.

I love it when couples approach us and say "We're reading your blog, and we're excited to start going on twenty-dollar dates too."

Knowing others are on the journey with us makes it even more fun! (and, now we can't make excuses anymore)

As we celebrate our first blogaversery, I spent some time reflecting on what we've learned from this journey.

You might want to make it easy on the reader to get to your blog by hyperlinking your site. It doesn't automatically do it for a web address, You have to hyperlink it like you did for the Radio and TV links.
