Date Night in a Jar

About a month ago, I decided to create a date night jar for the mister and myself. I had been meaning to post it, but I suck at keeping up with this whole blogging thing the majority of the time (haha). It was pretty simple to make. I mean, how hard is it to grab a mason jar, find some jumbo popsicle sticks and a few markers? I chose 3 different colors (blue, pink, green) to paint the tips of the sticks. Each color represents a price range.

Blue = Moderately priced outings
(bowling, sushi, coffee shop, picnic)

Pink = activities we can do at home
(chinese food, movie night, stargazing)

Green = Pricier and requires planning
(weekend away, theme park, camping)

I hate to admit it, but we haven't used it as much as we should. It's currently collecting dust on a desk in our bedroom. I do, however, plan to use it more in the weeks to come. G and I are still trying to find that balance between saving money and wasting spending it. I have a hard time letting go of it (especially when work is slow). Garrett is more of a spender, but he has cut back tons. Needless to say, we need to work on planning fun date nights so we can get out and live a little!

How do you and your significant other plan dates?
