Have a Doggone Good Time this February

When it comes to celebrations, February has a lot to offer.  Not only will we have the excitement of the Super Bowl and the romance of Valentine’s Day, there’s a day off for Presidents Day, and for kids in areas where there’s snow and ice, probably a few weather-related days off from school as well.  As a matter of fact, National Weathermen’s Day is February 5.  It honors one John Jeffries, one of the first men in America to keep weather records.  Born on February 5, 1744, Jeffries kept meticulous records of the weather and related events from 1774 until 1816.  Other notable days include Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras (Feb 13), Chinese New Year’s Day (Feb 16) and the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12) and George Washington (Feb 22).

With so much going on in February, you’ll want to be stocked up with plenty of food and drink for all the fun the month brings.  After all with days like National Pistachio Day (Feb 26) , Cherry Pie Day (Feb 20) and Love Your Pet Day (Feb 20), you’ll need plenty of nibbles and bits to keep the parties going.

Fortunately, there’s a place where you can obtain all the supplies you need to stock your shelves for the month of February and beyond – and that’s Costco.  And when you do so with a money saving costco coupon book from Groupon Coupons, you can do so for less.  Yes, we know all the big box jokes told at the expense of the super warehouse store, but there’s nothing funny about the real savings you earn when you shop there.  In fact, you can shop once and party twice – or even three times or more with all the bulk packages they sell.  So not only do you save time and money, you can serve a variety of goodies at all the holiday celebrations you invite your friends to.  Costco offers promo codes and coupons you can apply to their extensive list of goods and services, and there’s a benefit when you sign up for email alerts.  With so many ways to save, entertaining in February or any month for that matter is easy.

By the way, Chinese New Year ushers in the Year of the Dog.  People born in this year are said to be loyal and true.  Just the type of friend you’d want at a party.
