6 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day On The Cheap

View as Slideshow

1. Want to go out to dinner?
Try downloading coupons for a restaurant of your choice at restaurant.com.

2. Feel like a getaway?
Can’t afford to spend on a hotel room? Try swapping homes with your friends. Building a fire and watching a video at someone else’s house changes the atmosphere and the mood. For a real escape you can post your home on homeexchange.com and visit another city or even country for free!

3. Make a dinner and keep it in the “red.”
Start with beet salad and then move onto chicken cacciatore with a side of penne with vodka sauce. And finish with strawberries, whipped cream and red velvet cake.

6. Make your own coupons.
Let your darling cash in on a massage or breakfast in bed.
