I am not really a flower person. I always told my husband not to waste his money on flowers for me but for some reason for Valentine Day my husband gave me the Whole Foods Roses deal.

Lets say the manager marked down flowers but still flowers. Today Whole Foods has 3 bunches of Tulips for $12. They are usually $7.99 per bunch. Here it is- doing something a little special for yourself every once in awhile is a great pick me up! Frugally buy yourself some flowers today!
