You Can Show A Lot Of Love For Under $5!

It's the night before Valentine's Day, and your Valentine spending budget just went out the window with an unexpected expense. What's a guy... or girl... to do?

OR... maybe you have some extra special people who would love to know how much you care, but you can't afford to spend a lot on several different gifts! Either way, I'm going to show you several ways you can show your Valentine how you feel for not a lot of that green paper stuff that's so hard to come by nowadays!

So check your billfold... your change jar... your sofa cushions... see how close to $5 you can get, and let's have some Valentine fun!

3 Valentine Ideas For $5 Or Less! - Some of these are even under $1!

We're going drugstore shopping! If you don't drugstore shop, you'll be surprised at what's available during the various holidays for last minute shoppers! For this trip, we're going to Walgreens!

  1. ONE DOLLAR! Buy a pack of 5 brand-name Valentine cards for $4.99! The ones shown in the photo are Hallmark, as good as it gets, right? And I just purchased them myself so I know the price is current. You can get them at Walgreen's! I've never bought cards in bulk packs like this before, but I thought, "why not?" The cards are just as nice as the 99-cent ones I was going to buy at first for several people. Now the only question is - what will you do with your other remaining four dollars??
  2. Buy a larger box of wrapped candy and repackage the candy! You can attach one of these yummy Bakers chocolates to a card with a loop of clear tape for a little extra surprise. Put several in a sandwich baggie with a bow. You can make a $5 bag of wrapped candies go quite a way doing this!
  3. Go old-school. Give your card, a $3 stuffed animal and the wrapped chocolates all together for less than $5 a person!

Please Say Hello!
