Your item succesfully added on your shopping cart

You have no items in your shopping cart.

Right about now, your wallet is likely feeling the pinch of last month’s holiday shopping. Dinner and drinks may be out of reach, but that’s no excuse to cut out dates entirely.

Today we’re featuring seven great date ideas that fit even the smallest of budgets:


Hit a flea market

Trolling through a flea market is just as much about the experience as it is shopping. You’ll get to bond with your date over the treasures you unearth as well as over some of the interesting characters in attendance. You may even get to pick up a small gift for your date if something catches their eye.

Play monopoly

Boardgames can make for a terrific night in. Pour a glass of wine, put a friendly wager on the outcome to keep things interesting and let the good times roll.

Tour a museum

Most museums have a discounted or free day once a month or week. Also keep an eye out for “suggested” on the admission price, you can get into many museums for whatever amount you can afford. You can easily pass an entire day strolling through a large museum, and it will give you an opportunity to learn more about what inspires your date.

Skip the entrée

Let’s face it, appetizers and desert are often the things you really want on the menu anyway. Ordering a few appetizers and desert can be a very affordable way to eat out at your favorite restaurants. Bonus points if you can do it at a BYOB.

Visit a winery

Wineries are sprouting up everywhere a grape can conceivably be grown. Most of these upstarts host wine tastings for free or for a very small price. Go and learn about the different wines and keep mental notes on which your date enjoys. Breaking out a bottle of their favorite at a later date can earn you major points.

Play photographer

Pick up two disposable cameras and spend the day photographing your favorite spots around town. There’s something nostalgic about actually waiting for the pictures to be developed and you can make a second date out of arranging your favorites into an album.

Create your own farm to table

Making dinner together can make for a great romantic evening. Extend the fun by starting the day together at your local farmer’s market.

As Mother Nature tightens her icy grip, it’s important to kick your footwear game into high gear this winter. With the right pair of boots, you’ll be able to handle any weather the season has in store while looking as sharp as a Ginsu knife.

We’ve handpicked three great boots that will prepare you for any scenario, and paired them with their Walk On Socks sole-mates (pun intended).  Just be sure to double up on the socks if the mercury drops below zero!

The Cap Toe Brogue Boot – The perfect choice if you’re heading to the office. Enjoy the protection of a boot while sloshing over the sidewalk then hang your trousers over them for the appearance of a classic brogue shoe at work.

The Moc Boot – While a Moccasin inspired boot may not be the first item to jump to mind for winter footwear, it’s a solid choice.  The thick rubber soles and relaxed silhouette make them ideal for casual wear during inclement weather.

The Snow Boot – Because let’s face it, sometimes you just need a boot that can handle snow falling by the foot.

If you made a resolution to lose weight this year, it may be seeming like a daunting challenge right about now. The truth is - it doesn’t have to be. 

It comes down to simple math. To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume. Assuming that you already have a diet and exercise routine that has you at a steady weight, you can lose 20 pounds by simply consuming 100 calories less a day and burning 100 more calories a day.

One pound of fat = 3,500 calories

200 calories x 365 days = 73,000 calories = 20.86 pounds of fat

Try these five easy calorie saving and calorie burning tips and you’ll be shedding pounds in no time!

Save 100 Calories

Drink 1 less can of soda

Order bacon instead of sausage

Use skim milk instead of cream in 2 cups of coffee

Top your burger with lettuce, onion and tomato instead of cheese

When eating pizza, skip the crust on 2 slices

Burn 100 calories

Take a 20 minute walk to get coffee

Pace during a 30 minute phone call

With New Year’s Eve coming up on Wednesday, you may be heading to the liquor store to pick up a bottle or two of bubbly.

If you don’t read any further than this line, we can still save you from a splitting New Year’s Day headache. Avoid the $6.99 bottom shelf brands - they have Co2 pumped into them like soda and that’s what gives you the horrible headache, not the alcohol.

Now onto the pro tips for buying and drinking…

Buying

Sweet talk

The label will tell you if you’re looking at a sweet or dry sparkler. Brut = dry, Extra Dry = slightly sweeter (go figure), and Demi-sec = sweetest

Shop small

Big Champagne houses (the names you recognize like Moet, Cristal, etc) buy their grapes from growers. Growers also make their own brands which can be more affordable than the big names as well as more artisanal in their approach to winemaking.

Look for "RM" (Récoltant-Manipulant or grower-producer) on the label.

Go vintage

No – not in the hipster thrift shopping sense…

Sparkling wine with “vintage” and a date on the label indicates that it was only made with grapes from a year that the grower considered to be exceptionally good. 


Serving

Chill it

Champagne should be  served at around 45F. That’s about 3 hours in the fridge or 30 minutes in an ice bucket. NEVER put champagne in the freezer, it needs to chill slowly.

Pop it

Unless you just won the world series, you should not allow the cork to fly through the air. Grip the cork with a towel and slowly twist the bottle while it’s pointed away from you at a 45 degree angle. The cork should come out with a whisper, not a pop.

Pour it

Contrary to popular belief, champagne should not be drank from a flute.  A regular wine glass will do a better job of releasing its flavors.
