It’s that time of the year again folks. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Better get your wallets out because this year the average American plans to spend $74.12 on a spouse or significant other to celebrate this wonderful made-up holiday, which is up 8.5 percent over last year’s $116.21.
This means people will be spending an estimated $1.8 billion on flowers, $1.5 billion on candy, $1.4 billion on clothing and $1.1 billion on gift cards.
I’ll just take the cash. Thank you honey!
