With Valentine's Day coming up, it's important to be mindful of our spending as one of the first special occasions of the year comes upon us. In the past, my partner and I would celebrate by going out to dinner and with that comes wine, appetizers, main course and dessert. It sure adds up and quickly at that! This brings me to Valentine's Day 2022, is there activities to do to celebrate at home and save money?
Do you live in a part of the world that has nice weather during Valentine's Day? Can you go out for a picnic at a local park and pack food and bevvies from home? How about a DIY (do-it-yourself) gift this year such as knitting or crocheting a blanket, scarf or toque for your loved one?
When we stop and reflect on our skills, abilities and talents there are usually many ways we can save money, especially when special occasions are involved. Whatever you come up with for celebrating Valentine's Day 2022, I'd love to know in the comments! What do you do as a tradition or how are you changing it up this year to save money on Valentine's Day? I know many of you don't even celebrate Valentine's Day, so I'm curious, how many people even do celebrate this date? Let me know in the comments below. Signed, Filipina Budget Girl.
