Romancing the Budget… And Each Other

Is it possible to romance on a budget?  Sometimes it sure feels like the answer is no.  But romance isn’t about how much you spend but about how much you’re thinking of your love.  Change your mindset about romance to reflect that you’re thinking of your sweetheart, rather than what you can get for them or do with them.

Write a love note.  Stick it in their lunch.Rent a movie.  Pop microwave popcorn.  Turn off the lights and enjoy the home theatre.Call from work “just to hear your voice.??Buy an 89 cent stem of daisies on your way home from work.Offer to do their chores and send them off to do something relaxing they enjoy.Keep a love journal.  Sit it out on the table and take turns writing what you love about the other in it.Send a free e-card.  Bonus points if you send it to their work.

The point is, make an effort to remind your darling that you think the world of them.  Little touches like these add up to a bucketful of affection and romance, without a boatload of money.
