Spoil Your Sweetie
Valentine’s Day and red have always gone hand and hand. Red for love and for passion of course, but now also for the color your budget is in when the holiday is over. Although love is in the air on Valentine’s Day, it sure doesn’t come cheap. The flowers, the chocolates, it all adds up, especially when the prices are jacked up!
Example: a quick shopping trip on the internet to some popular flower delivery services, and whoa! Sticker shock! A dozen pink roses (red are nearly twice as much, so we’ll go with the more reasonable pink) are upwards of $70 a dozen! Throw in some chocolate covered strawberries for $60 a dozen and cue the Righteous Brothers, because “you’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’.”
So when you’re a couple trying to save some cash, no one can blame your Valentine for telling you to skip the gifts this February 14th. I for one can live without overpriced flowers, but what if I told you you could still spoil your sweetie without spoiling the budget? You can!! In the latest installment of “What can Davis Save us?” I’ll show you how to get those pink roses and that dozen of chocolate covered strawberries at a fraction of the price. (like 80% less!!) It can be done, and it’s easier than you might think.
To save on flowers, skip the florist. A lot of grocery stores like Wegman's have a fresh flower section. There you can find roses, tulips, daisies, you name it, all for a fraction of the price. While you're there grab some strawberries and your favorite chocolate chips or chocolate bar. That's all you need to make those "delish" chocolate covered strawberries. It's as easy as melting the chocolate and dip, dip, dip!
If you make some of these sweets for your sweetie take some pictures and send them along. We'd love to see them!!!
Good luck and Happy Valentine's Day.
