Simple Valentine Budget Ideas For the Family!!! Studio 40 Live Segment Details!


Hello Studio 40 Live Viewers!!!! Here is all the info on everything I shared on today’s segment!! I am so excited for Valentine’s Day and I have come up with some very simple budget-friendly ideas for you!

Here is what I bought at Smart & Final
Doritos 50 ct. $13.99  ($.28 each)

First Street Microwave Popcorn 24ct. $6.99 ($.29 each)

 

 

 

I used the Doritos bags- but any bags of chips will work for this. 

I printed these simple printables 
that say  You are all that and a bag of chips! 
I just taped them on – can easily be done by kids too!

Then I printed these printables for the microwave popcorn that say
You Make My Heart Pop!

 

 

 

This is a very simple snack for watching a family movie or a Valentine Party snack for the kids!
1 Box/Bag Teddy Grahams
1 Bag of Mini Marshmallows
1 Bag of Valentine Colored M&Ms

 

 

 

This is just so cute and a big hit in my house.

I always use the First Street Double Strength Red Food Coloring.
Just make one big bowl of mix and cook a few plain waffles (or pancakes) then add a little food coloring to make the batter pink and make some more-then add enough to make the batter red and then make the rest. It looks so pretty on a tray or individual plate. 

I got the Dash Mini Heart Waffle Maker at Target for $9.99

This is just a MUST for ANY holiday or a weekend or weekday quick dessert

Cake Mix Cookies

1 Cake Mix ( I used Strawberry)
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Oil

Mix and drop as cookies on a baking sheet. 
Add chocolate or white chips if desired
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. They will not seem like they are done, but they are. Let cool and they will be the most moist cookies ever!!
