Brittany's Budget Diary: Nothing says love like cheap food


VALDOSTA — • Do a romantic movie night at home. Fellas', bite the bullet and just pop in The Notebook already. We all know it's a great movie and you complaining about it only proves how insecure you are in your masculinity. Like a good wife, I have stripped my husband of things like that so he cuddles up to Ryan Gosling with no shame. If you want a movie that's more fun, try He's Just Not That Into You or She's Out of My League. Top the night off with popcorn and a cozy blanket and you're good to go.


Most importantly, remember this piece of advice above all else. If your significant other says they don't want to do anything, don't take that literally. Sure, you don't have to drop money on gifts, but at least acknowledge the day with a card, flowers, or even a happy Valentine's Day kiss. Seriously, don't be that person. The whole ‘Valentine's Day is just a corporate scheme’ is outplayed and just bitter. Love is awesome. Get over it.
