How To Have A “Date Night In”

Calling all busy couples!  It is hard to find time for a date night when you are keeping up with your busy schedule, not to mention your wallet isn’t always ready for an expensive night out on the town.

The Scoop met up with Drury University student, Kelsey Condon.  Kelsey has been in a relationship with her boyfriend for 2 years.  She is a busy college student who works a full-time job and her boyfriend is in collegiate sports.  Their busy schedules can be quite hectic and spending money on a night out, doesn’t always sit well with their bank account either.

Kelsey likes to have what she calls a “Date Night In”.  These special dates allow the couple to have a nice romantic evening, without the time and money commitment.  Kelsey was nice enough to show us how she prepares for this special kind of night.
