What to Buy at After-Valentine’s Day Sales

Boxes of Valentines
Did your child’s school have a classroom Valentine’s Day party? Will your child be attending the same school next year? If yes, then it is a good idea to buy a couple of boxes of valentines now, while they are on sale. Store them away and use them next year.

Will your child will be moving on to Middle School before next Valentine’s Day? It’s probably best to leave the boxed valentines on the shelf. Middle schools (or Junior High Schools) are more likely to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a school dance instead of the Elementary School classroom party. Your child won’t have a need for another box of valentines.

Roses and Bouquets of Flowers
Bouquets of flowers (especially roses) become very expensive right before Valentine’s Day. Many stores will dramatically lower the price right after the holiday is over. Before you by roses (or other flowers) check the price. Are they on sale? If not, wait a day and try again. You might find that the best discounts on flowers after Valentine’s Day come from grocery stores that have a floral department.

Valentine’s Day Candy
Holiday themed candy always goes on sale when the holiday ends. Are you someone who cannot get enough of those little, colorful, conversation hearts? Buy a few boxes now, at a low price, and enjoy them. Heart shaped boxes of chocolate will also be on sale. It is perfectly acceptable to buy yourself a box of it.

Just don’t go overboard. It may be tempting, but don’t buy more leftover Valentine’s Day candy than you aren’t likely to eat. Some of it is not going to store well, and some may expire before next Valentine’s Day. It isn’t advisable to store a heart shaped box of chocolate to give as a gift next year.

Red Paper Plates, Cups, and Napkins
Go ahead and buy some! These items can be safely stored away. You can use red paper plates, cups, and napkins at your Fourth of July party. More can be used at your Christmas party. The price will be nice and low now, but will go up as we get closer to those holidays.

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.
