One blogger created “Project 52,” where she and her husband had a date night once a week for 52 weeks. The dates needed to be creative, inexpensive, and allow them to spend quality time together without needing to get a babysitter. We've decided to share just 1 of her great posts during the 52 weeks!

I got an email from a follower wanting to know if I had all the date night ideas in a list. Well, now I do. And these are great ideas for Valentine’s Day if you can’t find a babysitter.
