Lunch Dates

Easy to Arrange and Less Expensive than Dinner Dates

If your kids are young and in school, arrange date lunches with your spouse. It is easier to meet somewhere for lunch once a week than it is to try and have a dinner date.

Another bonus to lunch dates is that the meals in restaurants at noon are usually less expensive, and you won't have to pay for a babysitter.

You don't always have to meet at a restaurant. On nice days, make some sandwiches and meet at a park or on a beach.

Note: We did this for many years when the kids were in school. Now that we are empty nesters, we still enjoy going out for lunch together.
