 weight watchers menu plan valentines

We decided a long time ago that going out to eat on Valentine’s Day just wasn’t for us. That’s my best frugal tip for Valentine’s Day: Stay home, splurge on some fancier than normal ingredients and enjoy a nice quiet homemade meal together. You’ll save money, calories and a lot of long-line frustration.

Luckily, many of the grocery stores put things like steak, strawberries and and even lobster on sale this week so your “splurge” doesn’t have to be a big budget buster.
