Fabulously Frugal Thursday

I’m in the mood for love…..for the next 3 weeks. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because 2 days later, it’s my birthday! While some folks don’t like having a Christmas birthday, I love having a Valentine’s birthday. Especially since it always snows around my birthday and I’m not fond of winter. I am very fond of red and bright pink. Sparkles, too. Love the sparkles.

To get you in the mood for love, I have lots of great, and of course, frugal ideas for Valentine’s Day. Go forth and show your love with these fabulously frugal gifts.
