In one week, it will be Valentine’s Day. Valentine items are plentiful and you will see several good sales on flowers and candy. This is a great time to plan and make reservations to your favorite restaurant. For families that like to make a great impression on a home cooked meal, stores are promoting specialty meats on sale, such as lobsters, shrimp and steaks. Of course, there are sales in the bakery department, too, on items like cupcakes.

We have another great week for coupon shopping and getting several items at a discounted rate. With any large holiday or special event such as the Super Bowl, you will see clearance items. While you are shopping sales, look for deals that can match up with the next family event or holiday.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan. This is the sixth week of the year. Place $6 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $21 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
