You don’t have to buy anything, but it can be fun to look at antiques and nostalgic products from the 90s. You can even have a contest with your date about who can find the ugliest piece of clothing or weirdest accessory. Bonus points if you two buy a cheap something and refurbish it and sell it for a profit!

2. Take a community education class

There are tons of cheap or free classes to take at your local community college or community center, with a range of commitments. You can learn how to paint, or take a weekend class on gardening. Or maybe you’ve always been curious about beekeeping, or the secrets of Oriental foil art. Everything from interior design to fly fishing is within the realm of possibilities, and how much fun would it be to learn something new and/or obscure with your loved one?

3. Give shelter dogs some love

… Because who doesn’t love playing with fuzzy animals?
(And if your date doesn’t like fluffy puppies, you may need to rethink the direction of your relationship, am I right?) Who knows? You may just come home with a new family member!
