Women, save money on Valentine's Day by employing these six tips.


Ladies, save money on Valentine's Day by using these six tips. They help you enjoy this holiday on the cheap. As a result, 24 hours later, you won't have a large credit card bill to pay off.

Save on Clothes, Gifts and Beauty

1. Rent your designer digs.
Get sexy on V-Day by getting your designer dress on loan. Patronize retailers such as Rent The Runway that offer women of all sizes a way to don brand name attire (and accessories) without paying thousands of dollars.

2. Buy candy at the drug store.
Drug store chocolates and hard candy are fresh and inexpensive. Your best bet: buy in bulk. Tie groupings of sweets together using a ribbon or place them in a mini bag.

3. Get cards and accessories at a dollar store.
Moms, save money on Valentine's Day by getting cards and other related accessories (decor, fake collectables, mugs) at The Dollar Tree. Your child won't know the difference since the quality of his book of Valentine's Day cards and any other corresponding item are the same as if you purchased them elsewhere.

4. Keep your dinner menu simple.
Unless your man is an acclaimed chef, keep your dinner menu simple. Offer up one meat, veggie and starch. Considering the focus of the evening, as long as you end up in each others arms, he won't care what's on his plate.

5. Sport a messy pony or a bun.
Don't waste energy and big dollars at a beauty salon. Flaunt the latest trend anyone can do - a messy ponytail or bun. All you need is a shiny rubber band and a few bobby pins. This style takes under 30 minutes to do. See Pinterest Braids, Messy Buns, Updos and Ponytails

6. Set a gift limit with your beau.
Let him know you're on a budget and would rather show love through acts versus pricy presents. Then, agree to a gift limit and stick to your word.
