Recently I saw an idea on Pinterest to use a towel bar to store tank tops. It is a 3 bar towel rack that has bars that swivel. The post on Pinterest mentioned one from IKEA for about $20. I got this one at Fleet Farm for about $3.50.
This is a way to store your tanktops without taking drawer space and it is easy to see all of them at one time.
You could also use this idea for other items such as scarves and belts.
Besides the game, a big part of the Super Bowl parties is the food. I have put together a Pinterest board with Super Bowl Party Ideas.

During the month of January, Suze Orman will be providing information to
Building a Strong Financial Foundation on her weekly show. The information and videos of the segments are also available at the link above. Her show is at 8:00 CT and again at 11:00 CT on CNBC on Saturday nights.
Some of the areas she is covering is how much and what kind of insurance you should have and saving for an emergency account and retirement.
January is typically known for being a great time to purchase items such as bedding, furniture and other home items.
Today I installed the roman shades I purchased a couple weeks ago at JCP.com. I purchased 5 shades for about $150 instead of the regular price of $450. The sale is still going on and there is information on the website about discount codes to get additional savings.
Besides home items, there are other things to consider purchasing in January.
There will likely be additional sales this weekend and coming week because of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday.
It is important to only take advantage of these deals if you do not have considerable debt. Any savings you receive will likely be negated by the amount of interest and finance charges you will pay on the balances due.
I have put together a Pinterest Board of Valentines Day Ideas which includes decorating ideas, treats and other ideas.
For 15 days starting January 15, Mary Hunt from DebtProof Living will be providing daily tips and advice to tackle debt in 2014 at DoSomethingAboutDebt.
As with other changes, it is important to take small steps instead of trying to make major changes at one time.

I saw a post on Facebook on Tues, January 14 about a lightbulb promotion at the Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity Restore store. The store is located at 210 N 11th St, Moorhead. They have teamed up with MaxLite and Xcel Energy to offer a 4 pack CFL 13 watt bulbs for $1.00.
The store is also a great place to check for items if you are remodeling or building. They have a wide selection of donated items and the proceeds benefit the Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity.
If you remodeling, consider donating items you are getting rid of instead of throwing them in the garbage.
