The best time to buy holiday related items is right after the holiday is over. The day after Valentine’s Day clearance sales are the best time to get some excellent deals. Here are some tips about the best things to buy.
The price of a bag of Hershey’s kisses, or Resse’s hearts, drops the day after Valentine’s Day. The chocolate is still good! Pick up a few bags to enjoy at home, or to share with co-workers. Some people use the nicely priced chocolate in homemade cookies.
Cute Baking Goods
Do you love to bake? February is the best time of the year to find heart shaped cookie cutters, pans, and candy molds. You may also find red or pink mixing bowls, spoons, spatulas, and other kitchen items. All of them go on sale after Valentine’s Day is over.
Bakers can also take advantage of sales on red food coloring, red and pink frosting, and baking mixes that are red, pink, or white with red and pink “funfetti”. Look for coupons and sales on brands like Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, and Nestle.
Clothing stores (especially the trendy ones) typically sell some Valentine’s Day apparel and accessories. The day after the holiday ends, they entice customers to buy those items at a discount. Look for great deals on love themed socks, t-shirts, sunglasses, and pajamas.
Parents can take advantage of the after Valentine’s Sales by picking up Valentine’s Day themed school supplies. These supplies are typically decorated with hearts, and may be red and pink in color.
Look for pencils that your kids can take to school or use to do their homework. Cute Valentine’s stickers can be used as a reward for good work. You might find heart shaped erasers or packages of red and pink construction paper.
