I must admit I’m a bit of a romantic, or at least that’s what the latest online poll I took told me. I do love a holiday devoted entirely to love. I get a little mushy when I think of making valentines with paper doilies and glitter.
I love making a trek to the superstore with my two daughters and letting them pick their favorite little cards (within a set budget of course). I adore showering a bit of extra love on that handsome man that I have the privilege of calling my husband. However, I also know that Valentine’s Day presents a financial challenge for me. How can I show the people I love most my true devotion without spending ridiculous amounts of money?
True, there is something a mite bit contagious about love in the air during mid-February. But wouldn’t any other day smell just as sweet as the 14th? After all, should all of our displays of affections be tied up into what is essentially a historic day of tragedy? Also, aren’t all of the flowers, cards and candy incredibly more affordable on clearance?
