Boxes of Valentines

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.

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.

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

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
