Yes! You can afford Roses on a couponers budget! Check out these beautiful roses I gave to myself today during my Kroger trip! Whenever I am having company over, taking a meal to a new mom or just need a pick-me-up- I head to the floral department and look for manager’s special flowers. Pull off a few wilted petals or sagging leaves and you have a beautiful bouquet for a fraction of the cost. Also look for flowers like alstroemeria and mums, these last longer anyway and will stretch your $ further. You can also arrange them in a repurposed jar to save on the vase too!
And wouldn’t you know, I also had a coupon too! (from Kroger MyMagazine mailer). So for $1.49, I brought a little sunshine into my kitchen. Not only do the flowers make me smile, but how little I paid for them make me beam! 😀
