Valentines Day

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day

Ah, February. The month when you can purchase a massive teddy bear and an oversize box of chocolates shaped like a heart from your local grocery store. Sure, Valentine's Day has turned into a consumer holiday fueled by Hallmark, but honestly, who cares? Valentine's Day is about celebrating that special someone in your life.

Love, Laughs, and Loose Change

If you've got a significant other, this day is pretty unavoidable. You've got dates to plan, flowers to order, and puppies to buy. It's an exciting day, but it can also be pretty stressful--especially on a college budget. Even though it may seem easier to pretend everything is okay and avoid your bank account altogether, it's a better idea to think ahead and strategize. Some planning on your part can help you rest assured that your bank account and hopefully your relationship won't suffer this Valentines Day.
