So the Valentine's real there! Here it passes unnoticed! That's why perhaps my purse is still the first pic! sorry! hope to celebrate it someday when I'll be in love!

I have been married 24 years this year - we have never celebrated it - love shouldn't be reserved for one day a year - gestures like a kiss hug or smile cost nothing and are far more important than material things! Hugs jan xx

The Dollar Store has become a favorite since I had kids, and I never thought I would set foot in Walmart, BUT you can't beat the deals even for Valentine's Day. My husband just wants to spend time with me. He's easy to please...Happy Valentine's! Hugs, Rhonda

I don't buy flowers on Valentines day. However I do buy flowers every sunday along with the morning papers. Chocolates are a no no I am told they hold the demon named Calories and must therefore be shut out of our lives!. Love your friend shane xxx

LOL it's MEN they don't want to pay attention to what we tell them all year, if they did they know candy & flowers is not needed, women would prefer men put some thought into gifts [like cook us dinner!] oh a bath would be so romantic [with them on the outside of the tub - soaping & brushing our hair? by candle light with a glass of wine? ;) Light & Love

You did a wonderful job here exposing the scam of greedy shops that love exploiting all the holidays for a quick buck. Emile.
