Budgeting for love (video blog)
By Tammy May


BUdget for loveDid you know that Australians spent over $800 million dollars on Valentine’s Day last year? That’s a lot of flowers and chocolates. The same amount of money would buy a week’s supply of groceries for more than three million families. That’s why this month’s video blog is all about finding more meaningful, less expensive ways to say “I love you” on Valentine’s Day.
