Frugal Tips for a Victorious Valentine's Day Married or Single

Married:
-Order your husband's favorite take out. Serve it on your nicest plates (yes even if its pizza). Light candles you already own. Make it special!
-Hand make your Valentine's Day card. Go to the Dollar Tree for supplies every things a buck!
-Skip the movie. Copy a few of your favorite photos over the years. Set your laptop up on the dinner table. Open up the folder and click slide show in your viewer.
-Take it one step further by making a play list of your favorite songs and play them as you watch the slide show.
-Give him a framed picture of your Wedding or a family photo for his desk at work.


Single:
-Have an UnValentine's Day rent horror movies, action flicks, anything anti-love. Pig out on popcorn and forget the opposite sex.
-Find some single friends and have a girl/guy's night out!
-Single Mom? Show your children they are the center of your world. Take them out to McDonald's treat them to a strawberry shake. Can't afford to go out try staying home and doing one of these great activities! Enjoy the hugs and kisses for being such a great mom!
-Single Dad? Send your children flowers to their school or Valentine's in the mail. Make sure to call them if you can't be with them and tell them they are your number one Valentine.
-Call a widow in your life and tell them you love them. Donate your time to a charity for the day. Giving selfless love will help you forget about not having a date.

Everyone:
-Take some time to share the greatest love of all in Christ Jesus. Testify to a stranger. Share Jesus with your children. Tell Him you love Him. If Valentine's Day is all about love, then its all about Jesus because He is love. Remember to share this today and everyday John 3:16.

Wonderful ideas. I was kind of thinking along those lines. I really don't want to go out with hubs and spend the money right now.
