Dear Todd Parker - (02/11/15)

Valentine's Day is such bullst. Everyone knows that it's just one more scam for corporations to make more money. Why should I hand over my cash to those a-holes at Hallmark or Whitman's or whatever just to celebrate a completely arbitrary date?

My girlfriend and I actually got together last spring, so this is the first time I've had to deal with this. She knows how I feel about the 'holiday' and she's on board with it. She thinks the whole thing is a crock too.

Five cheap ways to celebrate Valentine's Day

I'm cheap. It helps that I'm poor, but that doesn't quite account for all of it. Valentine's Day always struck me as a time to just spend money on things you don't need, and maybe don't even want all that much. Maybe it's just burnout from the holidays. Maybe I don't like eating in crowded restaurants. And I'm not really knocking it, because clearly it's popular and people enjoy it. But here are some fun, romantic twists to help my fellow cheapskates.
