The month of February gives frugal shoppers a lot of opportunity for saving money. There will be sales on holiday related items, seasonal clothing, mattresses, and more! Most of these deals will only last for a limited time.

Super Bowl Sunday

February 2, 2020, is Super Bowl Sunday. Are you planning to host a party? Save money by cutting up fresh vegetables instead of buy pre-packaged ones. Consider making chili, a dish that can serve several people at once. Ask guests to bring their own beverages. Avoid ordering pizza. The pizza delivery places will be bogged down with orders on Super Bowl Sunday, and your guests may end up waiting a long time for their food.

Valentine’s Day Gifts

February 14 is Valentine’s Day. Some stores will start to put out their Valentine’s Day candies, cards, and gifts at the end of January. For the best deal, wait as long as you can before making those kinds of purchases. The price will drop as you get closer to the holiday. In general, stores will deeply discount their Valentine’s Day items on February 15 – if not on Valentine’s Day itself.

Buy some Valentine’s day cards for your loved ones (such as your parents, siblings, children, spouse, or partner). Store it away until next year. Don’t buy more chocolate than you and your family can reasonably expect to eat in a short span of time. Avoid buying boxed Valentine’s Day cards for your kids to hand out next year. Many schools have stopped having Valentine’s Day parties.

President’s Day Sales

President’s Day is on the third Monday in February, and is part of a three-day weekend. Mattresses typically go on sale that weekend. You may also find furniture sales, sales on winter clothing, TVs, and more. Check the sales papers and the store websites before shopping.

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.
