Here are a few of the very best things to buy in February when you can get them for the lowest prices of the year.

What to Buy in February

Tax Software
Tax Day is April 18, 2017. This is when everyone’s individual tax returns are due to the Federal government. The companies that sell tax software are competing, right now, for your dollars. They hope you will buy their software (instead of their competitor’s software). If you look around, you might find coupon codes from companies like TurboTax, H&R Block, and others.

How old is your mattress? If you need a new one, the best time to buy it is during the February Presidents Day weekend sales. On average, mattress deals range from 20% to 40% off, depending on the manufacturer and the model. Ask if the store gives any freebies with the purchase of a new mattress (such as a free frame, mattress protector, or pillows). Some stores will sell floor model at up to a 50% discount.

Canned Foods
February is National Canned Food Month. Check your favorite coupon websites, newspapers, and email resources for coupons on canned food. One of the great things about canned foods is that they store longer than fresh foods can. Stock up on canned foods in February, while the price is low, and you won’t have to buy as much next month when the prices go back up.

The food bank near you is always going to appreciate donations of canned goods. Before you shop, ask the food bank what kinds of canned foods they need the most. Your dollar will stretch farther on canned goods in February than at any other time of year.

After Valentine’s Day Deals
That beautiful heart shaped box of chocolates that caught your attention before Valentine’s Day will drop dramatically in price the day after Valentine’s Day. If you can stand to wait, buying it the day after can save you some money.

Will your kids need to hand out paper valentines at school next year? Have them pick out a few boxes the day after Valentines Day. Those valentines will be on sale now. Store them away, and you won’t have to pay full price on paper valentines next year.

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.
