Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
I hope you get to spend it with people you love and make sure that they know it!
This year my husband and I are in different states so we won’t be having dinner together, and since we don’t have much disposable income there are no gifts to be mailed or flowers to be sent. And you know what, that’s ok.
It’s really easy to get caught up in the consumerism of holidays. I especially tend towards self-pity when I think of the things I cannot afford. For instance, I have been seeing these great caramels and truffles on Sneakpeeq that I would love to ship down to my hubbie in Louisiana. Sneakpeeq has great discounts so these items are by no means expensive, but right now it’s not in the budget. So instead we have been sending eachother love songs via you tube videos by email. Cheesy? Probably. But it really made my day to see Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love” in my email this morning (that’s the song we danced to for our first dance on our wedding day).
So, love is in the air and doesn’t have to be coming out of your wallet. In what frugal ways are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?
