8 Ways to Save on Valentine's Day

Having the perfect night out doesn’t mean you need to break the budget. Here are eight ideas for a thrifty Valentine’s Day date:

  1. Cook a romantic dinner at home instead of spending money on a restaurant. Set the ambiance with candles, a string of white lights, music, and a pretty table.
  2. Make your own gift. Instead of buying a pricey piece of jewelry, frame a nice picture of the two of you or write a meaningful card.
  3. If you are going out to eat, make sure to check Groupon, LivingSocial and RetailMeNot for deals on restaurants near you before making reservations.
  4. Skip the wine bottle at the restaurant and pop the cork at home instead.
  5. Explore the great outdoors! It may be cold out, but you can still have fun just enjoying the fresh air. Bundle up and take a romantic walk under the stars.
  6. Get yourself a great workout and have a fantastically fun date by going snow shoeing on Mt. Rainier. Rent snow shoes at Paradise Visitor’s Center for an unforgettable day in the mountain snow.
  7. Get cultured on a budget by taking advantage of a local museum’s free or discounted rates at specific times or nights.
  8. Have a rollicking good time at a neighborhood bar that features live music. Avoid the cover fee by going a little early.
