Celebrate Valentine’s Day the Inexpensive Way

This year, your romantic holiday can still be meaningful and enjoyable without breaking your wallet. Here are some helpful ideas to enjoy being with your significant other while still maintaining a budget:

• Instead of going out to dinner and paying extra for set Valentine’s Day menus, cook dinner at home together and celebrate with a bottle of wine.

• Instead of going to the movie theater, rent one of your favorite movies and watch it in the comfort of your own home.

• Instead of spending lots of money on lavish gifts, try simple ideas to show that you care such as writing down the things you love about the other person or presenting them with a coupon book filled with things you promise to do for them.

• If you are not a writer, revert back to the old phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words” and present them with a collage of your favorite photos together or a framed picture.

It does not matter how you decide to express your feelings for the other person, as long as you realize it does not have to cost you a fortune.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
