Last year Valentine’s Day National average spending was over $19 billion! (according to Fortune Feb 2017)
Be a happy and a frugal valentine this year. Save your hard earned money for better ways to show your loved ones you care about them and your financial future together!
What are people spending big bucks on? Candy, Flowers and greeting cards. Don’t follow the traps of what the majority of people put themselves into, more spending, more debt and ultimately less saving.
Here are 10 tips on how to be a fabulous and frugal Valentine:
Celebrate the following day or following weekend, set reservations and save a bundle.
Buy Cards and gifts after valentine’s day for next year’s preparation.
Buy Candy the day after. They are usually 50-70% off.
Make a one of a kind DIY gifts and show some creativity and thoughtfulness.
On the actual day stay indoors to avoid traffic, overcrowded restaurants and overall over priced items.
Netflix or Redbox instead of the movie theaters.
Dine in, Take out, or cook for each other all cheaper options.
Buy flowers at a local nursery or wholesale florist.
Take them on an Experience: a new hike, a new museum, a park all for free.
Set a limit on spending- maybe purposely make cheesy gifts from the 99 cents only store.
Enjoy each other everyday! Tell your loved ones how much you love them everyday not just on that one day a year.
Happy Hearts Day!
