Valentine’s Day on a Budget




Valentine’s Day can be expensive but can be done on a budget. You can have date nights that are cheap, fun activities with your kids that don’t cost a lot of money and things you can bring to schools that keep you on your budget!



This is our first year with my 3 year old at school so I’m making sure whatever we contribute to class doesn’t have us going over the budget! I’m also keeping the same mindset when it comes to celebrating with my husband. We are working hard on our debt free journey so I’ve already started to think about gifts that I can DIY and places we can go that stay in our ‘date’ budget!
