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.

4. Couples Geocaching
Geocaching is the newest fad, but did you know that following a treasure map can be insanely romantic, too? In this worldwide game of hide-and-seek, a geocacher places a geocache anywhere in the world. He or she pinpoints the exact location using GPS technology and then uploads that information to an online database. Anyone with a GPS unit is welcome to try to hone in on the treasure.

You and your sweetheart can get in on the international game — or you can create your own one-on-one version for Valentine’s Day by hiding a romantic treat and sending your partner on a quest to find your love token.
