BUFFALO, N.Y.-- Aboutthree weeks before Valentine's Day is actually one of the best times to purchase that perfect gift.

As the days leading up to V-Day approach, many of the "promotions" are in fact reductions on items that are cranked up in price for the special occasion. Stores know when folks are buying out of necessity, and don't exactly go out of their way to lower prices if they're going to nab that sale anyhow.

I'd like to thank two of the cheap ladies in my life Katie and Julia for helping hunt down some of today's items and for their continue cheap support.
