Men, listen up for a minute. I know we’re lazy, and when it comes to making our girls happy, we’ll go with convenience over anything else, even if it’s at a premium price. But, if you want to win with money in your lifetime, you need to start learning how to save money when it’s staring you in the face. So, here’s my number one way to save money on valentine’s day for your woman:
Don’t buy flowers from a flower shop. You will spend $75 bucks, and they’ll be arranged nicely and in a vase, but it’s just not worth it given all of the alternatives. Check out where I get almost all of my flowers for my wife. I get them from Publix or Super Target. For those of you not in the southeast, Publix is an upscale supermarket. I get a dozen roses for about $20 to $25 dollars, then i get a $5 dollar vase with some ribbon for about a $1, and there you have it. I get her $30 roses, and you spent $80 bucks.
Again, I’m a guy, so I understand the convenience factor, plus the fact that flower shops will deliver. During Christmas, I don’t look for deals, I just buy what I know my girl wants, and I get the hell out of the shopping center. I’ll admit that I’m not good during Christmas about getting good deals, but for holidays that were contrived by retailers and service providers such as Valentine’s Day, I always try to save money. You will pay double or even triple for convenience in your lifetime. Those savings add up over a lifetime, so go the extra mile and save some money on holidays that prey on men like you and me.
