Make a Window Collage for Date Night

Living a frugal lifestyle but still want to treat your special someone to a wonderful evening? No problem! There are lots of cheap date options out there; it's a matter of making them happen! You may feel pressure to take your date somewhere that costs way more than you can afford, but just remember -- if they don't have the spunk to try out something different and be willing to live life frugally, well, you may not be able to get along anyway.

A window collage for a special date.

Cheap Dates are great for first dates, tenth dates, or I-can't-rememberth dates! Whether you've been married for years or are just starting to get to know your significant other, these inexpensive outing options can be great fun.

This time in Cheap Dates, we'll take a look at window collaging. It may sound like a terribly disguised way to get your date to do your housework, but really, it's an excuse to let your creativity flow and have some fun writing on surfaces you were never allowed to mark up before!

All you'll need for this cheap date is a pack of window markers and, optionally, some window decals. Both of these should be impermanent, so be sure of that when you buy them -- you don't want to use Sharpies or permanent stickers and end up with decorations you can never get rid of! Then, invite your date over for a fun meal; when they arrive, tell them the fun activity of the day is vandalism!

Pick some visible windows to decorate, if you want your neighbors to get a kick out of your decorations. Depending on what decals you purchased, you may already have a theme in hand; if not, you might want to come up with one for each pane, or you may just want to run wild and doodle and write anything and everything you can think of! (Also, there are decal pages out there that are blank, so you can make your own.)

You can choose instead to decorate a more private window, and write messages to each other -- either ones you watch each other write, or ones you leave throughout your relationship (designate it as your personal "whiteboard").

When you tired of the decorations, it's a simple matter of peeling away the decals (if you store them properly, they will be reusable) and using paper towels to wipe away the marker residue to clean up your mess!

How I wish my boyfriend would do these kind of romantic things for me. He's not that kind of guy, but I'm still hoping.
