A New Kind Of Valentine’s Day

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:46 pm by bitsypieces

In the past, our Valentine’s Day celebration typically included an expensive restaurant meal (with wine), plus a bottle or two of wine at home.  Hubby and I purchased each other cards, plus maybe a small gift (like some undies).  Total spent would have probably been about $150-$200.

Well, pregnancy–and our new desire to save money–has changed this year’s Valentine’s celebration.   Here’s what we’re doing:

  • Going out to lunch at an inexpensive restaurant.
  • Skipping the wine.  (Not good for Baby!)
  • Skipping the gifts.
  • Playing rented video games.  (It’s some of our favorite “couple” time.)

Sure… it’s not the most exciting Valentine’s Day ever.  But our cost was about $25.  Not as cheap as homemade cards and a homemade meal of red beans and white rice… but still less expensive than previous years.

    We didn’t do anything for Valentines Day but tonight we will probably exchange back massage’s (something we both enjoy) 😉 I think cards are highly over priced anyway, they usually cost $5 or more and what does a person really do with them after?!? Throw them away!! I’d rather have the $5 or a coffee!! 🙂 he he
