I was reading an article in All You magazine about ways to celebrate Valentine's Day for less. Some of their ideas were...
- Eat in instead of going to a restaurant. Have a picnic by the fire with heart shaped foods.
- Go out to eat, but ask about discounts for early or late seatings.
- Make chocolate fondue at home instead of splurging on boxed candy.
- Instead of spending cash on a card, write a poem or love letter.
Any other ideas for having a frugal Valentine's Day?
With three children, Valentine's Day can get very expensive here. Instead of giving store-bought Valentines, we usually make our own. I found some great little Valentine-themed treat bags this summer at one of the thrift stores, still sealed in the package. I think we'll make cookies or fudge for the teachers and put it in those.
