Internet Searches For Cheap Lingerie Jumped in 2009

2009 Is the Year of Cheap Lingerie

This economy has made a lot of people appreciative of the really important things in life, like spending time with loved ones. While I'm perfectly content spending my Valentine's Day in my apartment with my Valentine and a home cooked meal, there are plenty of cupids who can't forget traditionally risque gifts like lingerie or tiny tokens like a card acknowledging the day.

You don't need to look much further than this year's Internet search stats to recognize the trends for 2009: Yahoo! reports that searches for "Free Valentine's Day cards" have increased 788 percent from last year and "cheap lingerie" searches are up 370 percent. Those looking for inexpensive lingerie might want to modify their search words if they're looking for a discount and not "cheap" looking undergarments, yes?

Are you spending any money on Valentine's gifts this year?

My husband and I don't usually do big gifts for Valentine's day--honestly, I just think it's silly. We do cards, he gets me flowers (always daisies or gerbera daisies), and we usually exchange one small gift. We are saving for a house and a baby, so spending a lot on Valentine's day wasn't a priority for us.

I'm not going to spend a TON of money, but I did buy my hubby his absolute favorite treats...pickled herring and Valentine Peeps. Well, that and I got a Brazilian, but that's kind of a present for both of us. I find it to be WAY more exciting than new lingerie in the bedroom. I know he's going to get me flowers and a card, because he always does that. Nothing TOO over-the-top.

I bought a card for my parents and one for my grandmother. And a bag of candy for each. That's it. V-day when you are single is cheap!

chaton you're not a grinch! my husband waits tables and bartends - he COULD work every Sat. night and he would like to because he would make a lot of money! I don't let him and that's totally for my own selfish reasons :) If your guy wants to work, and you are letting him do what he wants, that's kinda sweet!

Oh wow, now I feel like a Valentine Grinch for telling my boyfriend that since he can work this weekend, since he's trying to save money, he should work this weekend, and that there's to be no nonsense about sending me flowers or anything.

I'm spending a fortune ($500) -- that is WAY more than I have ever spent on any holiday for my husband. I set aside part of my Christmas bonus that would have otherwise been spent on bills or home repair just to do something really nice for him one time. Hope he likes it!

I made my boyfriend a sentimental jewelry box of sorts from a little wooden box I got at AC Moore and decorated it with fun little wooden things on top and stained it. That stuff gets pricey, $35 for everything!! Then I picked him up two shirts for about $40 and plan on baking and cooking for him. I think I did pretty okay, under $100 for the holiday. I couldn't not get him ANYTHING when our anniversary is next week too and we've been together 5 yrs. I had to do something...

My boyfriend and I agreed not to buy any flowers or presents for tomorrow, but instead, to spend a shizzload of money on food to make a lavish breakfast, lunch and dinner! Ok, so not a shizzload, but whatever we would have spent on overpriced flowers and jewellery, etc.
