Picnic I know it seems to be a bit ordinary date if you invite your boyfriend or girlfriend on a picnic.Hello Dear Reader, If you live in the UK, you’ve probably seen ‘First Dates’.I find it compelling but never understand why they don’t sort out one thing before the first gin and tonic. Now, it’s been forever since I went on a date but when DB and I first got together, we took in turns paying, I’d pay on one date and he’d pay on the next. In case you’ve never heard of the programme, couples go on a blind date and they hit it off or they don’t.It makes me froth round the edges if one of the datees expects the other to pay for them.
My husband and I have been making an effort to go on more dates lately, and not just the twice a year type thing that we'd been doing until now.Being frugal is being resourceful and savvy about how you spend your money, whereas being cheap is trying to cut corners to the detriment of yourself or others just so you don't have to spend money.Take a look at some of these frugal versus cheap examples, and let me know if you agree in the comments below.I've seen it many times over, and there's a special name for cheap people like that.Likewise, don't be the jerk that goes out to eat with friends and doesn't order anything but then picks off other people's plates.
