Photo Booth Tour

Set out on an adventure to find all the old-school photo booths in your city and collect a reel of you and your sweetie from each one. A quick search on Google or Yelp should give you a pretty good listing (as well as addresses).

Out of pocket: Most photo booths are around or under $5 but come prepared with a heck of a lot of quarters on the off chance they don’t take plastic.

Make it more romantic: Bring a couple props so each strip of photos will be a little bit different. Construction paper hearts, funny mustaches drawn on your fingers and fake glasses will keep the quirky love flowing.

Public Display of Affection

No, it’s not what you think! But today of all days is the best time to express your love to the world – or at least your neighborhood. Grab some sidewalk chalk and hit the streets with your declarations of affections, or paint a big sign to hang in your front window.

Out of pocket: Under $10, I don’t care how elaborate you’re going to be.

Make it more romantic: Pack a picnic and eat some sandwiches under your work. There’s nothing quite like being in love while being surrounded by love.

Let Fate Decide Your New Favorite Restaurant (*My Favorite!)

Reservations un-necessary! Hop in the car, pick a number between 30 and 80 and start driving around, counting restaurants. When you’ve arrived at your new, magical date spot, grab a bite to eat. I promise you’ll see Subway with new eyes!

Out of pocket: Who knows! It could be as little as a Happy Meal for two and as much as the finest sashimi in all the city.

Make it more romantic: Don’t rely on the radio during your car ride. Put together a Valentine’s Day play list so you have something sweet and commercial-free to jam out to.  Also, tuck a couple of linen napkins and tea candles in the dashboard. It’ll add instant ambiance to your meal on the off chance it is fast food you end up with.

Do YOU have a fun or frugal date idea?? 

If you’re like me, you’re always trying to figure out a fun creative idea to do for Valentine’s day!  Well here’s what my plan is (DON’T TELL MY HUBBY THOUGH!!)!  I’m making our guest bedroom a “Lots ‘O Love Bed and Breakfast!” I’m gonna have dinner and this fun package I found on Me And My Insanity waiting when he gets home in the room. :)  What are your plans for the special day?

Here are a few other fun and cheap Valentine ideas you could do!! :) (Thanks Moms By Heart!)
