I love fresh flowers, but they can be crazy expensive. There's a solution, though – flower happy hour at Rachel's.
From 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday afternoons, all of the cut flowers at Rachel's are buy one, get one free. The price depends on the flower – my lillies were two for $5, roses were 2 for $3 and the carnations were about $1 for two. I wound up scoring 12 flowers for about $16.
The stock changes weekly, so you never know what will be available or what specials they'll have (this past weekend, you could get two dozen roses for $20). Pro tip: for the biggest selection, go closer to 4 p.m.
