Valentine’s Day can be expensive so shop wisely! 

You can show your love without flashing too much cash

The origins of Valentine’s Day go way way into the past. Many scholars say that it was related to the Roman festival of Lupercal which always fell around the same time.  The Church then created a day of love in the middle of February which had always been regarded as an auspicious month for romance.

However as with so many religious festivals, Mammon the devil who represents envy rears his ugly head in the shape of the very many commercial blandishments that have come to be associated with Valentine’s Day. You would think that there was some Divine command to purchase expensive mass produced greetings cards, to buy overpriced floral displays that may not last out the day and to have a so-called romantic mood in a restaurant that has a special menu with prices doubled up for the night of February 14th.

So for those who are concerned about their cash balances and credit status, here are a few tips as to how you can shop wisely – or even sometimes save on shopping entirely.

#1 Say it with pictures

Get working on a photo album with pictures that show what’s gone on during the past twelve months or be even more ambitious and go back over the years since you two first met. Alternatively (or additionally) compile a scrapbook that shows all the things that mean so much to the pair of you.  Put up a map with stars or push pins to indicate places you’ve been on holiday together.

#2 Say it with your own flowers

Cultivate flowers or plants in your back yard or your window box and make that your presentation. Much better, much cheaper!

#3 Say it with chocolate

You can go to budget stores and get loads of assorted chocolates and sweeties. Buy a big decorative mug, fill it with sweet delights, put a velvet bow on the handle and you have a wonderful gift.

And don’t forget…you can get instant cash relief with one of our auto title loans. If approved for a loan you can get a loan from $2,600 and up!
