Time and Money Saving Ideas When Getting Ready for a Date

Time and money saving whilst dating begins by choosing the relatively inexpensive option of online dating for those of us who are parents already, according to members of MumsDateDads.co.uk, a dating for parents site for single mums and dads looking for love. This continues through finding that new outfit in the inexpensive high street shops, thinking ahead and a little preparation where possible. In addition, the members have offered some of their hints and tips:

1. The priority for single parents will be to ensure the children are looked after and arranging for a sitter doesn’t have to be a large expense; try pairing up with other families in the area to informally exchange sitting time. This can also work on a rotation basis with close friends and family.

2. Think about where you’re going to well in advance and get what you need done well in advance, such as, laundering or enhancing that particular outfit.

3. A good idea for girls to be able to simply jazz up an outfit they already have is to glam it up with new accessories. For these or those strappy black shoes shopping online is not only easy and usually safe from the comfort of your own home, but can be very cost-effective.

4. When it comes to make-up, ask a friend to do your make-up for you! Then they are also around to keep an eye on the children while you’re getting ready.

5. Finally, don’t panic! It just wastes time and energy, and stops you from enjoying the process of getting ready as well as the date! Enjoy it!!

Andy Hammonds, founder of MumsDateDads, explains, "We all now recognise that far from splashing out; every penny counts, and members of the site are saying that this means they don’t feel under pressure to splurge before you’ve even started the date."

Andy continues, "This brings about more creative thinking when planning a date which helps to save precious time which all parents want to spend on their children."
