  • Morning Coffee: Hit Valentine’s Day clearance sales to be ready for next year

    Happy President’s Day! You can get free admission all day at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda. While you’re out and about, you may want to hit a Valentine’s Day clearance sale to stock up for next year. I like to buy the boys’ class Valentine’s Day cards the year before, and as long as I get cards with tattoos or stickers, they’ll last a year with no problem.

    1. I can vouch for that de-skunking solution. It works! We don't even add the dishwashing soap and it still works.

      I love buying v-day items the day after. I do that for Easter and Christmas as well. You can usually get a pretty nice deal on the cards and gift wrap.
