Valentine's Day comes at a difficult time for lack of money. Hispanics fight crisis with romantic ideas.

Valentine's Day or Valentine's Day is here and our pockets are in total crisis. It's time to use creativity as a last resort to express the love we feel for our partner.

Some are Hispanic and they are managing to not look bad with the love of your life without spending a dime or very little investment.

Fill the house with signs expressing their love and the qualities of her husband, is the idea that Patricia Belbusti, a housing counselor in Washington, used for Valentine's night.

"I will write how much I love and many of its qualities and I will put up a sign everywhere. It will be like a journey. Since coming into the house, you see a sign on the door, then in the bathroom mirror, another in the kitchen, everywhere, "said Belbusti to media.

The amount of light in the house will be important to create a romantic atmosphere, as this woman in Argentina.

"Zero lights. I will put candles everywhere and finish the evening with a delicious dinner, which my husband likes, "said Belbusti, who has over ten years living with a partner.

With a little creativity, Belbusti sure to make your home a totally different place for that special night, and best of all, without spending a dime.

A romantic dinner

The romantic dinner seems to be the most popular idea among those who do not want to spend much for Valentine's Day. The secret is the place to dine.

Her boyfriend's house is the perfect place to Kriscia Orellana, a college student from California. She also plans to close the evening with a special moment.

"Will prepare an exclusive dinner for him, and then I will rent a good romantic movie, so that the two sit down to see it close together," said Kris, as they call their friends.

Another preferred food to please your partner is Jorge Rivas.

"There is a lot of money and a nice dinner is a good idea," said the Salvadoran 25, who lives in Falls Church, Virginia city.

"The important thing is the atmosphere. I set the table with candles, an elegant tablecloth, a bottle of wine and background music, "revealed Rivas.

Angela Aparicio for lunch outdoors, "depending on the weather" is the perfect combination.

"If it is so cold I'm taking my husband to the park, and cook something delicious for him," Aparicio said.

A romantic card will be created manually which will Beatriz Escobar.

"I'll cut, in a garden, a pretty flower to add to gift," said Escobar.

According to experts in pairs, it is not cost or budget gift for Valentine's night, but to provide a detailed, whatever.
