Going out

Ever since we started tightening our budget, we haven’t gotten out much. We love movies, but now we’re saving money by renting everything through Netflix. We also love eating out, but now we’re saving money by cooking more. Unfortunately, going to movies and eating at restaurants have always been our two main “things to do out.” We enjoy playing games, doing puzzles, and creating art together, but those are typically home-bound activities.

One day last week we went shopping for a friend’s birthday present. The experience reminded me how much fun we could have together outside the house. I miss going out with my wife, but I don’t know what we can do without spending a lot of money. Winter is just beginning to break here on Long Island, so we’ll soon be able to take long walks and maybe play some tennis. Other than that, I’m at a loss.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
