I had a frugal post almost written, but since it is Valentine’s Day this weekend I thought a frugal Valentines post was in order. My “Learning to Wait” frugality post will publish next week.
My frugal tip for Valentine’s Day:
Seriously, why fight the crowds (and the weather) for some Hallmark holiday? Save your money and celebrate Valentine’s Day in March.
But, if you must celebrate sooner rather then later here are a few frugal ideas.
Valentine’s Challenge: Avoid the Valentine’s crowds and celebrate a few days after February 14th with this fun challenge.
Eat Cheap on Valentine’s Day: These inexpensive and copycat meals can make a dinner at home go from so-so to so fun!
Chocolate: For all you chocoholics out there, check out these delectable desserts from my friend Lynn. Personally I would skip dinner and just make one of these yummy treats!
Valentine’s Coupons: Give the gift of service with these downloadable coupons. There are coupons for moms, dads, teachers, neighbors, kids and more. Print out these coupons and give them with a side of brownies to share the love!
Valentine’s Treasure Hunt: I love this idea from Beauty and Bedlam, perfect for kids who love to play hide and seek!
Creative Valentine’s Ideas: Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you make yourself. These ideas are easy, fun, and cheap!
Cheapie Date Ideas: Jessica shares some great tried and true cheap (and I’m talking FREE) date ideas. I love that some of them include serving others and getting fit!
Romantic Dinner at Home: Several recipes including one for “love potion.” Is it just me, or do the words “love potion” make you giggle just a bit?
