Want to make a special Valentine’s Day for your special someone, significant other, kids, or friend. There is a smart way to save money and complete this holiday while showing your love for them.
Candy? You can buy candy, but why not buy it in the regular aisle? Make it valentine’s day by finding some red or pink paper, tissue paper, or even regular paper and make a cute saying. See below for some freebie sayings to get you started:
Flowers? Wait to buy them until the day after — did you know grocery stores upcharge a lot for them? They upcharge over 70% — how do I know this? We work for a grocery store. The candy vases that are 29.99 — the items in the vases are less than $10.00. Is your mouth dropping? Flowers are the same way! If you want to buy flowers, buy them late when they are discounted. Give your love a note saying, “I want to buy you something special for today, but they will be handpicked tomorrow.” Keep their mind going but let them know you are still thinking about Valentine’s Day.
Balloons? Want to know this — grocery stores make 50%+ gross profit off of them!
Cards? Yes they are cute, but I bet your love’d ones would love a creative card made from the paper you have at home more! Go to the greeting card aisle and take the ideas of sweet words and go make your own!
Dinner out? It will be busy. Want to avoid the crowd — take them out for dinner another night or even do a lunch date the day of valentines day. It will be cheaper with a lunch special!
There are so many other cute ideas on Pinterest for cheap to show your love! All you have to do is search — valentines day. I hope this helps your February budget for valentines day!
