DOING MUCH MORE WITH WHAT YOU ALREADY EARN!
A FREEDOM FASTTRACK/MONDAY MORNING RADIO FEATURE

Valentine's Day 2014 Edition

By Dale Clarke and Dean Rotbart

Regardless of your budget, Spend This, Not That™ offers our suggestions for choosing wisely; leveraging cash outlays with infusions of creativity and imagination; spotting and utilizing savings opportunities; and above all else, making your Valentine's Day gifts count.

Chocolates (Not That): Godiva offers Valentine’s Day chocolates in a keepsake, fabric heart-shaped box that contains 40 limited-edition heart-shaped pieces.  “Make a grand romantic gesture with our…quintessential gift of love,” the chocolatier coos.  Cost is $100, which includes free standard shipping.

Chocolates (Spend This) That limited edition fabric heart-shaped box will have little utility once the goodies inside are gone.  The box isn’t designed to be refillable and, in our experience, emits a stale smell in time.

For under $90 online, you can purchase the Sephra 16-Inch Stainless Steel 4-Pound home fondue fountain, capable of dispensing premium Belgium dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate and other delectable varieties (including liquid caramel) guaranteed to make your sweet-loving lover’s heart melt.

Plan your entire evening around the chocolate fountain, including what you’ll dip into it – strawberries, pound cake, pretzels, body parts… whatever.

Four pounds of your favorite fondue chocolate, more than enough to satiate even the most voracious chocoholic, will run you about $32.

Dishwasher safe parts are easy to clean and the fondue fountain can be used to entertain small gatherings year round – or to reenact your Valentine’s Day liaison whenever the mood is right.
