Welcome to 31 Days of Date Nights. My plan is to give you a simple date night idea, (mostly frugal ones) every day for the month of October. You can access all posts in this series here.
When we were getting settled into our current home, we came across a bunch of movie soundtracks that DH had from movies he had seen as a child. One of the soundtracks was to the movie “The American Tail.”
We had both seen the movie as kids. But, we hadn’t seen it since. I listened to the soundtrack, but only remembered the song “Somewhere Out There.”
I started looking on eBay for a used copy of the movie to surprise DH with. He’s not big into gifts, but I thought this would for sure make his day. I was able to get it for $2.50, including shipping.
We sat down and watched the movie together on one of our “stay at home” date nights. We were surprised at how little either of us had actually remembered about the movie.
We also watched “The Little Mermaid”
which is one of my favorite Disney movies. DH hadn’t ever seen that movie. And, in fact, he said we most definitely would not be letting DD see the movie because it was all about rebelling from her dad! lol! I had never thought about it that way, but I see his point.
As I’ve mentioned, you can get movies from Redbox for super cheap, or free. I’ve also been able to stream a few free movies from Amazon.com when they’ve had a special On Demand offer.
As to when/if DD gets to see “The Little Mermaid,” I’ll keep you posted. So far she hasn’t seen any movies, but we’ll see what the future brings.
