      I love that! I have been ordering from the bouqs (and even have a subscription), but knowing this and I think I’m going to switch over to farmgirl! I love a socially conscious company!

    • Darcilew

      Wonderful! I will try them this week!

    • **Lisa**

      Thank you for letting us know that! They even have a “Planned Parenthood” bouquet. It’s absolutely beautiful! Love those fall colors!!! Happy Valentine’s Day to me! 🥰

    • amy

      Thanks for the info…will not be purchasing from there.

    • aggiejen

      Thanks for the heads up!

    • Dee

      Oh, good. My mother-in-law got help from Planned Parenthood 55 years ago when she had no other options. She got jeered by ugly people as she went in for help. Going to order a bouquet in her honor and in honor of that baby, the wonderful son I married. 🙂

      • Mom2boys

        This brought tears of joy to my eyes…thanks for sharing. I am.so glad it worked out for all of you! I wish you all much love and happiness!!💕

    • yess

      Wonderful reason to support them thank you.

      Good to know-will definitely support a business that supports Planned Parenthood-what a great organization!

    • Heather

      Great I will make a purchase!

    • k

      Thank you Jill. I appreciate your love for life and the unborn and this info. is very helpful.

    • Tara

      Thank you so very much Jill for commenting about PP, I will definitely spend my money elsewhere. 🙏🏼

      • Sylwia AF

        Lol I’ll pay twice then, once for you 🤲

      • Tina

        Ditto!

  2. Casey

    Flowers are so expensive and only last one week maybe two if lucky. Instead give someone flowers for there garden or a plant.

    • PrincessMom

      We give my MIL a plant for Mother’s Day but then we send a bouquet for her birthday because it’s too cold out to plant anything and they have limited space for indoor plants. It works out well that she gets something to brighten up the house when the gardens outside are winter drab. 🙂

    • MommySpendsLess

      Casey – that’s a good idea if the person has the right spot for them and a green thumb. I love plants but under my care the potted ones won’t live much longer than the cut bouquets. I agree with your premise that, while beautiful and thoughtful, flowers are expensive for what you get out of them. I almost feel guilty whenever my mom sends me flowers. I’d rather have a cuddly blanket, kitchen gadget, faux plant, etc. because they’ll last for years and I can think of the giver every time I see/use them.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you for sharing, Patti! I love fiddle leaf plants!

      • KKStanley

        I thought I’d check out the Amazon site for plants so I clicked on the link that Patti posted above. I was so excited to check them out until I was reading the reviews.
        They were pretty bad reviews, except for a few. Mostly, complaints about receiving plants that were rotting, small in size and damaged. That may not be a great choice for plants from what could see.

  3. susan-5

    Aldis usually has some great deals on Valentine’s flowers.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you!

  4. acgold

    Thank you H2S, after seeing a post here we used Costco to send roses. They were beautiful. We have ordered a few times for various occasions, due to the affordability. They come perfect and last about 2 weeks with changing the water. There are many colors available. The people and places we sent them to do not have local florists to support.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We sure appreciate your comment, acgold! I’ve had so much luck with the Costco roses, too! I love that they last several weeks, but even more the all the beautiful colors!

  5. Sbhallinan

    I love having flowers weekly in my house, but it can get pricey. I just picked up some cheap flowers at Trader Joe’s yesterday and a really cute plant. All for under $15. Whole Foods often has really pretty affordable flowers and plants too, just FYI. Oh and plants from Ikea! My husband thinks I’m crazy, you should see my plant collection🤣. My new thing is clipping my own succulents to make mixed pots, it’s so fun and they are really pretty.

    • K. Nazario

      Ive been wanting to try! Do you use a rooting compound or just stick them in soil?

      • Sbhallinan

        You clip them, let the stems dry for a day and then just stick them in soil and water them a little. Put them in a spot that gets good sun and within 1-2 weeks or so they start to get roots. Water a little every week and until established. Then 1-2x a month after that. I have never had it not work!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You sound really talented! Making your own mixed pots is a really affordable way to add to your plant collection. I am like you and love having fresh flowers weekly! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Lattemommy

    Just wanted to add that Wegmans has amazingly affordable flowers that last for weeks!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you!

  7. Brit

    Also voting Whole Foods… have not tried Wegmans but believe that would be a likely place… affordability try Sam’s for roses or Costco. Does BJs carry anything? I suprised no one mentioned Lidl..while I generally in prefer Aldi for other items, Lidl has some $3 bouquets. I think this is the perfect time to mention that you can buy yourself flowers! You can share that with your daughters…and of course mention to your sons that a reasonably priced flower gift is a kind gesture 🙂 I am sure we have all dated someone at sometime in our lives that just didn’t get what the big deal was about flowers bc “they die anyway.” Lol! You don’t have to spend $80 on an arrangement. Thanks H2S for the informative post 🙂

  8. Jane

    I’d also be interested in a great place for paper whites or tulips that will open on arrival.

  9. Betsy

    We swear by Trader Joes for flowers. Always a great selection and the best prices. Of course, now we have to wait in line to get in so there’s that- but still worth it!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I agree! They have such a nice selection to brighten up a home and they last a long time!

  10. Jennifer

    Thank you so much. Just used Costco to send my Grandma Valentines flowers. I haven’t gotten to hug her in over a year due to Covid. She lives in a nursing home in Queens, NY. I’m sure these will bring a smile to her face.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw, love this! I’m so glad we were able to help you send a smile.

      • Jennifer

        👍

  11. Ms

    Did enyone tried instacart for flower delivery?

  12. ienotaryservices

    In reply to Ms I used instacart to order flower from Costco to send to my sister I asked the shopper on my notes to message me a picture of the color selection available so I could let them know my preference, it worked great ! My sister was happy with the roses and she’s even growing her own out of the same bouquet!!

    • Ms

      Thank you ! I would give it a try too

  13. Sarah

    I have an amazing bargain grocery store locally that sells huge beautiful bouquets of flowers for $.99 or $1.99… seriously they are leftovers from walmart or other stores that were usually $10- $20. I literally tell my husband not to bother buying me any flowers because I get better bouquets through that store. They last like 1 1/2 weeks ❤️ The money goes back locally to the community too

  14. JanaGad

    Has anyone tried using a Groupon and go through Rakuten to buy flowers?

  15. JanaGad

    Has anyone tried purchasing a Groupon for one of the flower delivery companies (like 1800Flowers) and then went through Rakuten and used the Groupon? Did you have success? TIA
