Cupid is on a budget this year!

This year cupid needs to be put on a budget.
About 1 billion Valentine's Day cards are exchanged in US each year. That's the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas. Be creative and find a new way to express love that will not end up in a landfill such as make a poem, rent a movie, or recreate your first date.
Have little ones at home? Save the expense of a sitter; put the kiddos to bed early then cook dinner together and reminisce about fun memories.
Here are three ideas to show love without breaking the bank.

1. Dollar Store to the rescue! 
7 Balloons from the Dollar Tree       $7.00
1 Card from the Dollar Tree              $ .50
1 package of heart window clings   $1.00
1 box of chocolates                             $1.00  
Valentines Day for less than $10!!


2. Show up at her/his work and self-deliver balloons.  8 balloons with a balloon weight and a card = major points!
3. Romantic evening with a bottle of wine over a candle light dinner at home and a single long stem rose.
Other great ideas for Valentine’s Day on a dime can be found at Cost-Conscious Cupid.
The best advice is to plan ahead.  Vendors at the mall are ready to help the last minute shopper overspend. The best gift is well thought out and from the heart!
Happy Valentines Day!
