Who doesn’t love a good post-holiday sale? February 15th is the day to stock up on all your favorite Valentine’s Day goodies. In the days following Valentine’s Day, you can score discounts up to 90 percent. If you don’t see rock-bottom prices right away, wait a few days for prices to drop. Just don’t wait too long or all you’ll find are empty shelves! This year, look for deep discounts on the following items:

Candy: One of Valentine’s Day’s most popular goodies! There are sure to be plenty of post-Valentine’s Day candy sales. Luckily candy has a long shelf life (several months at least) so you can stock up while the deals last. Consider looking for candy, such as kisses, that you can use in baking too!

Cards: Think outside the box when shopping holiday card sales. Valentine’s Day cards can be used for scrapbooking, collages, and other craft projects. Or you can just store your cards until the next year.

Toys: Prior to Valentine’s Day, you’ll find all different kinds of pricey holiday toys ranging from stuffed animals to your kids’ favorite trinkets. If the toy doesn’t specifically mention Valentine’s Day, you can use the post-holiday sales as an opportunity to stock up on gifts to give throughout the year. You can also donate your post-holiday sale loot to children’s charities.

Decorations: Stock up on festive decorations while they’re cheap! You can repurpose Valentine’s Day decorations for engagement parties, weddings, anniversaries, school dances and more. Let your imagination run wild! Also, look for decorations that can be used for craft projects or costumes.

Baked Goods: Look for rock-bottom prices on holiday baked goods such as cookies, cakes, and cookie dough. If you find an especially irresistible deal, don’t forget that you can store the extra in the freezer.

Be sure to stock up on post-Valentine’s Day sale items so that you can save on decorations and gifts the following year. Planning ahead is always a great way to save!

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.
