Dh and I decided to challenge each other to not pickup/play with our phones while at the table eating.
Any suggestions on perks or consequences for us to use?

Maybe leave them in another room and not bring them to the table at all. I think its a good idea!

Good idea! Hmm...how about whoever looks at their phone first/the most (whatever) has to do the dishes next time? Or let the other one sleep in? or Cook dinner? or something like that. I can't think of anything really good...

Has to be a consequence that you both hate so that you wouldn't be tempted to pick up your phones in order to avoid it lol...a chore? an errand? etc...

Or a perk (something naughty ) for who ever goes the longest without checking/answeringthe phone?

We (well I demanded) a no phone policy at our dinner table....at-home or outside. No perks, no consequences except for me *****ing if I see DH using his phone

I know that if it's with friends and you're out, whoever looks at their phone first pays the bill.

At home....not sure how you would enforce that?
