Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really require a step by step process, because it is really just that easy!

I bought the plain Popsicle sticks to use, but you could buy the pre-colored ones, they were just quadruple the cost of the plain sticks! I am a cheap person, so I bought the $.75 sticks!

I chose to color the tip of each of the sticks. Since they were color coded you can pick based on the category you want. 

I made a little key for my jar, because heaven knows I'll forget what each stick color means!

It's super easy and will help when we just don't know what we want to do, but know we want to do something!

Until next time,
