Is Valentine’s Day a waste of money?
Here’s what some of our Facebook friends had to say:
We celebrate with a nice dinner the day before or after to avoid the crowds and we exchange mushy cards. Maybe we should do this on the 14th of every month as a reminder to express our feelings for each other. – Linda Sowell
Definitely over-commercialized. We should honor each other regularly throughout the year. That being said though, most do not do it without having a day made for it. – Janine Batiste
No. You don’t have to be “cliche” with it, just do what feels right for you and your loved one! I LOVE it! – Lavender Booth
Can you relate to any of these comments?
Here are a few ways to keep Valentine’s Day love in the air:
Protip: Your Money Personalities have EVERYTHING to do with how you view Valentine’s Day.
Want a good chuckle? Find your two Money Personalities in the list below and see if this is how you respond to Valentine’s Day.
- Saver: you can’t wait to show your love, but your gift won’t break the bank.
- Spender: you have no problem living it up to make your statement of love!
- Risk Taker: the wilder the better.
- Security Seeker: no element of surprise with your gift.
- Flyer: cozy up, Honey! You just want to spend time together.
Bottom Line? Chuckle at how your Money Personalities view Valentine’s Day but give your gifts this year keeping your spouse’s Money Personalities in mind. Here are some hints to do just that.
- Is a Saver really going to want a lavish gift? We know not :-).
- Is a Spender going to want the lavish gift? Absolutely!
- Is the Risk Taker going to want something “different?” Oh yes.
- Is the Security Seeker going to want a well-thought-out gift? Right on.
- And, last, is the Flyer just going to want to spend time with you? You got it.
Give the gift that keeps on giving by thinking about your spouse. A gift is about the “getter”, not the “giver”.
