I really miss the days of not being a student and being able to go out and buy a pair of jeans, go to the movies and have some after work drinks. These days those events never happen within the same day, week or month. I basically have a big list in the back of the Filofax and on the side of my desktop screen where I write down anything that I really, really crave. This stuff ranges from specific make-up products, perfumes and clothing to books and "events." I'm definitely not an impulse buy kinda person. Everything gets researched to bits, because with limited funds buying stuff that I don't love only ends up making me cry.
L and I have been in a bit of a rut when it comes to doing stuff for this reason though. I know that there's fabulous nearly free things to do, but most things do cost an arm and a leg. We can't afford to go to dinner every week and as we're in England it's hardly long romantic walks on the promenade weather. Hopefully we'll be off to visit London Science Museum later in the month as it keeps getting recommended to me and entry is free (!). While I'm more of an art museum lover I'm sure this is something we'll both be able to enjoy together.
Have you guys got any tips for cheap date nights and days? We'll soon have an entire week off together and I really don't want to end up sat inside playing Kingdoms of Amalur all weekend! We've already made plans to visit the gym lots as that's definitely a couple's activity we both love to indulge in.
