Can you believe it’s already February? That means Valentine’s Day is less than 2 weeks away. I’m single this year so it will be inexpensive for me, but even when I’m in a relationship for Valentine’s Day I’ve never been into all the hype. My theory is that I should feel a bit special every day, not just over the top once a year. 🙂 Anyway, I asked some Simply Savers how they celebrate Valentine’s Day on a budget and here is what they have to say:
Staying single. –Scott
Be single. –Aaron
Peel labels off of an expensive bottle of wine and paste it on a cheap one and serve. –Matt
In college we used to kick it old school and make each other valentines. I could send you pictures because they were actually pretty cute. Also, there are some Pinterest ideas for “romance on a budget” where they have tips like check Groupon at the least minute. That type of stuff. –Bridget
My most favorite V day memory with Tim is when he bought like two or more boxes of cheesy valentines cards (you know the ones that you pass out at school) and put them EVERYWHERE! On my phone so when I turned off my alarm it was the first thing I saw, pinned to my clothes, around my lunch in my lunch box, on my toothbrush, on my debit card since he knew I had to stop for gas on my way to work. It cost him $2 and in 10 years, that is still my favorite memory. –Mariette
Pretend you forgot. -Bob
Heart shaped pizza from papa Murphy’s I think. –Kevin
Checkout restaurant.com for gift certificates. Like pay $5 for a $25 gift certificate. –May
Being single. -Jessie
We get a heart-shaped pizza at Papa Murphy’s every year. –Sarah
Be single. –Brian
Google cheap romantic dates for your area. A lot of places do couples things for the price of one admission. Like painting places might have a couples art project, etc. –Mariette
Notice it’s mostly the men that suggest being single. Not quite the response I was looking for, but a valid point! The clear winners here are being single and Papa Murphy’s heart-shaped pizza, which is actually called “The HeartBaker.” There were some other creative ideas too! What did we miss? Comment below with your Valentine’s Day on a Budget suggestions!
