PhotobucketWhy Be Frugal?

I consider frugality an art form and a religious conviction. I learned about paying cash for purchases, recycling and reusing just about everything and being generous to friends and those in need from my parents.

My faith instructs me all things are gifted by God and so I am compelled to be a good steward of my gifts. [The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man. Psalm 115:16]

Inexpensive Valentine's Day Gifts

For inexpensive Valentine's Day gifts, read my article at Associated Content, Inexpensive Valentine's Day Gifts for Every Person in Your Life.

While you're there, check out this article, A Different Twist on Giving Gifts, that includes gift sets you can assemble from "dollar" store and other inexpensive items.

You might also enjoy Unique, Inexpensive Gifts for the "Hard to buy for" on your List.

Lea Ann at Mommy's Wish List report that from now until February 14, when you buy a dozen Valentine donuts at Krispy Kreme you'll get 12 free Valentine Cards. These special cards each have a Free Donut coupon on the back. Not only do they have sprinkled Heart doughnuts, they also have chocolate iced Heart doughnuts with red drizzle, and Triple Chocolate doughnuts with chocolate Kreme filling, chocolate icing and brownie crumbles on top.

Check out this list of participating stores here to make sure your store has the Valentine donuts and cards.

Of course, the best gift you can give anyone is the gift of your time. Why not make a "coupon book" with coupons for watching a movie (of the recipient's choice), a trip to the park, a walk around the block, working a jig-saw puzzle together, home-cooked meal (or dessert) of their choice and/or any other activities they might enjoy.

personal coupons are great. We did that for Christmas one year and I admired the various gifts in our family maintanence, meals, and my favorite coupon to redeem...oven cleaning (hate that)!
