Love it or hate it Valentines day happens every year and for those of us in a relationship it's one of the best days of the year and for those who aren't not so much but hey you can buy chocolate in a heart shape for a while and buy yourself all of the cute bears. Although like most holidays Valentines Day can come at an expense, but only if you want it to. I have put together a guide to help you keep your Valentines day as affordable as possible and keeping the costs down doesn't mean you'll have a rubbish day just means it involves more thought, if anything that is better! Because lets face it not everyone can afford dinner at the Ritz and huge bouquet of roses. I hope you enjoy this guide and I would love to know if you incorporated any of these ideas into your day.
