Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and if you're planning on buying flowers for your special someone, you need to be prepared. Consumers will spend $1.8 billion on flowers on Valentine's Day this year, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation
released today. Here are five ways to save on flowers this Valentine's Day:
1. Know how much you want to pay
If you don't know what you want when you walk into a flower shop, there's a good chance you'll overspend. If you want to spend no more than $10, it's unlikely you'll be convinced to shell out $100 on an elaborate floral arrangement. Decide what you want to spend, and then call up a few shops to see what you can get in your price range.
