Driving home last night, listening to NPR, I learned that the average American spends $116 on Valentine's day. I thought to myself, well I spent $0 so ha! Of course, thinking more about it, I was focused on the $0 I spent on my husband. I spent $5 on cards and actually expended a total of $85.
I spent $5 on Valentine's Day cards for Gram and Grandpa, my god-daughter and her sister, my niece and my nephew. I also made three $20 charitable donations which included the organization sending Valentine's Day cards to my three closest friends (so really will be allocated as giving not spending). I also sent $10 to my god-daughter and to $10 to her sister in their Valentine's Day cards.
How about you?
