    Default Frugal Valentine Gifts

    So, what frugal Valentine gifts are you giving this year? I am making my husband white chocolate peppermint bark (with leftover candy canes! lol) and some home made chocolate chip cookies. I will go out and buy some kind of tin or something for $1 to put them in. For my kids I am still deciding
    What about ya'll?

    We don't really do a lot of gifts for this holiday. I will probably make DH a nice steak dinner.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    I buy candy for our older kids that don't have valentine parties at school anymore. Usually get a couple of Papa Murphy's $6 heart shaped pizzas and take some chocolate chip cookie dough and shape it into a big heart shaped cookie or maybe I'll make some cupcakes. No gifts. My husband has written me a poem and bought me flowers before, but I'm not expecting anything. Our weeknights are so busy with kids activities that this is about all we get to- but we are happy so its all good.

    i use to buy gifts for the kids at CVS the year before when the were 75% -90% off ( non perishable - plush- little games etc)
    now they are older i usually give them a 5-10$ GC to a minimart or store ( if i earn some store they like GC from mypoints )

    usually give dh something he will like book - clothing etc
    this year we are on a tight budget due to missing a paycheck due to layoff and new job
    this year i will probably bake a cake of some sort
    make some jello add whipped cream
    depends on what i see i have in my baking pantry .
