Money Can’t Buy You Love – How to Celebrate a Frugal Valentine’s Day

Last year, Americans spent nearly $18 billion on Valentine’s Day — that’s an average of $120 per Cupid’s arrow!

But with the economy tanking and job losses hitting an all time high, even lovebirds might not be in the mood to sing. The good news is that romance doesn’t have to cost a fortune. There are plenty of ways to woo your Valentine while appealing to a pocketbook of any size. So join us as we take a look at  frugal and imaginative gift ideas for Valentine’s Day.

2. Go Star Gazing
There is nothing more romantic than laying on a blanket, staring up at the stars with your true love. Of course, in February, the weather is not always conducive to outdoor romps. Where there’s a will, there’s a way: Even the smallest of towns often have planetariums — which make the perfect cold weather alternative for outdoor gazing. Grab a blanket and a pair of double-budded earphones for your iPod, and make a night of it.
