Love at 50% off

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, February 15, 2013

This isn’t a rant or even a complaint just a statement of fact. Each year I tell DH NOT to buy me candy for Valentine’s Day. I don’t need the chocolate and after nearly 50 years together (45 married), I don’t need an official day for him to buy anything to verify that he loves me.

Note: I know that I’m a tiny minority in this view and I do not judge or criticize anyone who feels differently. In fact, I like seeing all the different ways people show their affection for that special person in their life and it’s also a boost to the economy. I just don’t need it myself.

DH & I have always agreed on one thing. We’re very thrifty. So I expect I will receive candy anyway, but it will be at the 50% off sale today or tomorrow. In a week or so I may get another token of chocolate love at 75% off unless others with similar mindsets have already cleared the shelves. It’s too bad the percent reduction is only in money not calories. Now that would be some gift!
