$10 Great Dates – Book Review
If you are married, when is the last time you and your spouse went on a date? And – this is key – when is the last time you spent $10 or less on a date?
If you are anything like my husband and I, you are probably way overdue for some good, quality time with one another – particularly fun things that don’t empty your bank account!
That’s why $10 Great Dates – Connecting Love, Marriage and Fun On a Budget by Peter and Heather Larson and David and Claudia Arp is the perfect gift for yourself, newlyweds, and all of your married friends!
$10 Great Dates delivers just what the title promises – 52 creative dates that you and your spouse can enjoy for less than the cost of a movie or a tank of gas!
Think of this book as a year’s worth of adventures that take you and your loved one back to the days when you first met – when spending time with one another was more important than spending money – when looking forward to a day or evening out with someone you loved was the highlight of your week!
For $10 or less – no matter how tight your budget is – Larson and Arp make getting out of the house and painting the town with one another possible!
$10 Great Dates is broken into eight categories that describe the types of adventures you’ll find inside:
- Adventure Great Dates
- Out-On-The-Town Great Dates
- At-Home Great Dates
- The Great Outdoors Great Dates
- Marriage Pick-Me-Up Great Dates
- Romantic Great Dates
- Seasonal Specials Great Dates
- Unique And Unusual Great Dates
Each date is structured to present:
- The Idea
- Before Your Date
- On Your Date
- Talking Points
- Great Date Takeaway
There is no right or wrong way to use $10 Great Dates. You can read it from cover to cover or randomly pick and choose your dates. I think it would be fun for couples to take turns surprising one another with a weekly date that they plan using the ideas found in this book!
Regularly spending time connecting with your spouse helps to ensure that over the years, you continue to grow together, not apart!
For just a few dollars and a few hours each week, $10 Great Dates might prove to be one of the best marital investments that you and your spouse ever make!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
