You must have done a double take to see if you were reading that caption right! You were! Everyone in our sphere knows that we are frugal. So when my 10 year old heard we were doing a guest series on Valentine’s she gladly offered her services.
All of us have experienced at least one heartache at Valentines time and our children are watching and learning from our behaviours.
Well, our little one has been reading up on the background and traditions surrounding valentines and offered her views on how to have a worth while valentines day where we think of others other than ourselves.
For legal reasons, she cannot be named but she is a sprightly young girl who loves reading, writing and arguing her point! See what you think about what she says.
Here are some other experiences of frugal valentine celebrations
I would like to share my tips for Valentines because far too many people are spending too much money and there are other ways to show people that you care and love them. Some of these ideas include making them breakfast in bed or picking them flowers. I am here to tell you that you can celebrate Valentines without spending hundreds of pounds. Here are some other tips:
- Go to shops that sell less expensive items. That will show that you care.
- If you know of anyone who has no one to celebrate Valentines with then why don’t you give them a card so they feel loved on that day?
- You could go to a help centre or shelter and help with feeding the homeless or some other similar nice thing like that.
- You could try setting up a soup stall for people who are less fortunate
- You could visit someone’s grave and leave them some flowers.
- Spend some time with someone who feels unloved.
This melts my heart just reading now and knowing she has a tender, caring heart! We all do need to raise more thoughtful kids.
So there you have it. A number of ideas for Valentines on a frugal budget. So this coming Valentines see if you can think of ideas so that you can save some money.
