  • Go on cheaper dates

While heading to a fancy restaurant is always great, treating your loved one to the best possible experience money can buy, but this doesn’t help your finances. Find alternative date idea that won’t cost an arm and a leg, but can still give you that all-special evening with your significant other. A sunset picnic or dinner in the garden with fairy lights, these are special, thoughtful ideas that won’t break the bank.

 

  • When it’s time, move in

When it’s the right time and your life is on track, move in with your significant other. While it’s a big step and shouldn’t be rushed, this takes a huge amount of the financial pressure off both sides. Consolidating your finances to a degree, rent, food and all other living expenses are now split between two rather than resting on one.
