Hear me out
Each and every year couples spend hundreds of dollars on gifts for their special someone. Not always but sometimes leaving them in a financial bind afterwards. So this year set a limit of spending. It does not have to be $35, but the lower the amount the more interesting it is. It makes you think of thoughtful and creative gifts.
To make this experience fun, place a bet on the game. Winner takes other out to Popeye's (I really have a weakness for their tenders and biscuits.)
