It is worth taking a look at the items that are included in after Valentine’s Day sales. Sometimes, these sales begin slightly before Valentine’s Day arrives! You can get some really great deals on things that have been drastically marked down. For best results, it helps if you plan ahead for next year’s Valentine’s Day.
What to Buy After Valentine’s Day
Boxes of Valentines
Did your child attend a Valentine’s Day classroom party at school this year? Take a moment to figure out if they are likely to do the same next year. In general, it is the elementary schools that have the kinds of classroom parties that require students to give paper valentines to everyone in their class. If your child will still be in elementary school next year, it would be a good idea to pick up a few boxes of valentines now.
Valentine’s Day Cards
See if you can find a really nice Valentine’s Day card for your spouse – and save it for next year. The cards that were more expensive (and decorative) than the rest will be on sale and more affordable. Buy the card now, and you can save both money and time next Valentine’s Day.
There are some people who send Valentine’s Day cards to their mother, grandmother, or other relatives that they are close to. It can be really difficult to find a Valentine’s Day card that isn’t designed to be given to someone you are in a romantic relationship with. Now is a good time to look for the cards that simply say “Happy Valentine’s Day”. Again, this saves you money and time for next year.
Valentine’s Day Craft Items
Are you someone who likes to put together Valentine’s Day related crafts and use them to decorate your home? Holiday related crafts, especially the ones that come with all the pieces in one box, can be expensive. The price drops dramatically if you wait to purchase the craft during the after Valentine’s Day sales.
If you are especially crafty, you might want to pick up items that can be turned into handmade valentines for next year. Look for paper lace doilies, Valentines’ Day stickers, red or pink ribbons, and decorative scrapbook paper that has gone on sale.
Red Paper Plates
The leftover red paper plates, napkins, and plastic cups are worth shopping for. Buy them now for a low price and use them in upcoming holidays that also include the color red. If you plan on having a backyard barbecue on the Fourth of July, you’re going to need napkins and plates, right? The red color will look festive. Or, you can save the red plates, napkins, and cups for Christmas celebrations.
