How often do you and your spouse get to be alone w/o your kids?

Well alot of times we want to do things together and we don't have a babysitter. Does anyone know of a good way to find a reliable babysitter that won't cost you an arm and a leg to pay for. I want to spend more alone time with my hubby because we never really get to be alone. Don't get me wrong I love my kids dearly and I couldn't imagine life w/o them, but I just would like to enjoy some alone time with my husband in which I feel is fair. So if anyone knows some good ways to find a babysitter that doesn't cost so much please let me know.

Not enough. My children are older but we are all so busy that we just dont get much time to ourselves, plus we dont have a lot of extra cash to say go out for dinner or anything like that. I am hoping for the warmer weather so we can go for a walk on the beach then out for a cone or something :-) babysitters = a lot of money, my daughter is just starting to babysit (she is almost 14) and while i was happy with $20 for babysitting, the last gig she did was for $40 and plus she got to stay over night (it was friends of ours) What about grandma or another relative? or babysit one night for a friend who has children the same age as yours and get them to return the favor at a later date?
