Valentines Day at home + February Shopping Haul
Romantic Valentines Day at home (on a budget)
I love Valentine’s Day. In fact, it’s most definitely one of my favorite holidays of all. I love roses, chocolate, romance, and people showing their love for each other. Valentines Day can be expensive though. Once you find a new outfit to wear, exchange gifts, and go on a romantic date the cost adds up and for most of us it can get pretty steep. I also find it really annoying trying go to dinner on Valentines Day because all of the restaurants are so crowded. If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you may know that I am really passionate about building wealth, saving money, and being financially free. Over the past few years, my husband and I have been able to completely transform our financial situation by changing our spending habits to drastically reduce the amount of money we spend on things that we don’t exactly need in life. Valentines Day is no exception. While I love fine dining and dressing up to go out, we are looking to purchase our first house and I just didn’t feel like blowing tons of money on one night. Even though we didn’t go out, we had the most amazing time at home and really awesome food as well! I steamed some lobster tails and we had shrimp as well. The dinner was amazing and super romantic! We decorated the table with an amazing candle, rose petals, and had piano music playing and it really was such a fancy restaurant vibe. Btw, we got 2 lobster tails for only ten bucks! This is way cheaper than any restaurant.
