Wise Bread on Marketplace: A Frugal Valentine's Day
I'm not the biggest Valentine's Day fan. It's not that I hate love, but I do hate all of the expensive things people are expected to do to express that love. And personally, I fail to see how a gold-script card and box of chocolates (or worse — a poorly made stuffed bear holding a heart) from the drug store is the proper expression of something as profound as loving another human being.
But I'm not a total sourpuss — I just think that there are more personal, and definitely more frugal, ways to celebrate Valentine's Day. That's why I chatted with Marketplace Money host Tess Vigeland over the weekend about wonderful and cheap V-Day celebrations. Plus, many of these great gifts and celebrations can be pulled off last-minute, if you happen to be reading this on February 14
