$319.54.

We bought two ceiling fans to replace the old crappy ones that hung too low in the living room. We bought two MATCHING flush mount fans, so now we'll be able to use the elliptical machine without the fan blades thwapping me in the head repeatedly.

How romantic, eh?

Not much at all. Valentine's is not a holiday we really spend much on.
Gave each kid $20 and some candy. They're teenagers and happy as can be with a little cash.

Total - $50

Zero...
unless you want to count the $ 9.85 pork loin roast bought at
$ 1.99 a pound that went into the oven as one big roast. I was going to break it down into 2 or 3 small ones, but hubby wanted leftovers to make sandwiches for the next couple of days.
I guess I'm a pushover if I don't have to cook for a couple of other meals this week. And less dishes too....I sure hope so.

$6 for a box of candy for dz cuz he's a baby and $3 for the kids' boxes of chocolates. :) This nonsense holiday drives me nuts...

I MEAN, Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Interesting question svs.

We spent $36 for breakfast.
Dh spent $20 on cards and a rose.
$20 to DD plus $4 for a pattern for her scrub top
$30 for VD exchange
$15 for preschool goodies

Total is $125 - my that does mount up fast, but it was spread over time and all in cash, so that works for me. And it was all worth it!!

I got DH about $30 worth of stuff (all practical) and he did the same for me. I didn't want the kids having a bunch of candy so we got them lattes (our holiday "snack")

Dinner out Friday was about $30. We spent today at home together. Valentine's is not a big day for us, we celebrate our love all year long.

~We don't do Valentine's Day either so no money was spent on it. But I did spend $20 on cookies and desserts to take over to my family's impromptu family reunion.~
