Date Idea Jar


Well I FINALLY made my own Date Jar!! I read all of those websites on pinterest and put all of their lists together!! So my list is AWESOME!!! 

The first thing to do is to make your categories. I had three categories: Eating Out, Staying In, and Going Out. Some other ways to organize your Date Jar would be by cost: Free, Under $20, Under $50, Over $100. I then painted the jumbo craft sticks using spray paint (each category gets a different color). I wrote on the sticks using permanent marker. SUPER EASY!! 

How the Date Idea Jar works: First, we see what we're in the mood for...a new restaurant, a night out, or a night in?? We then both pick an idea out of the jar and select the best one. Don't forget to write the date on the back of the stick before you put it back in the jar!! Or you can also remove the stick and make it a goal to empty the jar!! I like the idea of writing the dates down, and there's nothing wrong with doing some of the dates more than once!!
