How much will you spend this Valentine’s Day?

Love can be hard on the bank account, especially for men!
According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend an estimated $18.6 billion on Valentine’s Day candy, flowers, jewelry and other gifts this year. That’s about $131.00 a person and that’s up $5.00 from last year.
There also seems to be a gender divide; men are expected to fork out twice as much as the ladies.
