Every car owner knows that they need to change their oil. Many car owners don't change the oil often enough in their cars. If the two of you have never changed a car's oil, you're in for a really exciting adventure. Changing the oil isn't difficult, but it can be messy for first-timers. If one of you has changed the oil before, none of it will be much of a surprise to you. The oil in your car is the lifeblood of your engine. It's surprising to see what the oil looks like, and the two of you are in for a real shock with this date. Wear old clothes and make sure to have plenty of rags nearby because changing your oil is messy even for those who are highly experienced.

Now is the perfect time for both you and your spouse to go through your wardrobe and see what you need to get rid of and buy. Online shopping makes it easy, but for the ultimate date, go to a mall or a big box store where both of you can get what you need. Sure, the two of you won't find everything that you need at the same place. But it will be fun to see how the other shops for clothes. Men and women can be polar opposites when it comes to clothes buying, but you'll enjoy seeing how different the other is.
