Frugal gals, you might want to forward this to the guys in your lives so they don’t overpay for Valentine’s Day bouquets in their quest to demonstrate how much they love you.

    Living Social – Pay $25 for $50 to spend on flowers from Teleflora (Bouquets start at $44.95, with a $15.99 service fee. They offer a “deal of the day” bouquet for $50 – you take what you get!) Purchase voucher by Friday 2/10.

    Groupon – $20 for $40 to spend on flowers (or any gift) through FTD. Florist-delivered bouquets start at $29.99 before fees. Purchase Groupon by Saturday 2/11.
