For many people, Valentine’s Day means gifts, candy, or flowers, and spending for this holiday can take a surprisingly big bite out of your finances if you’re not careful. In fact, Valentine’s Day is the third most expensive holiday on the U.S. calendar.
How do you know if you’re spending too much on your Valentine?
Accustomed to counseling SCSU students on financial literacy, Lewis J. DeLuca, director of Student Financial Literacy and Advising, was recently interviewed by WalletHub for an article about Valentine’s Day spending.
Figuring out how to pay for a college education can be one of the biggest hurdles students and their families face when planning for the future. To help educate students and families on financial literacy, the Student Financial Literacy and Advising Office, run by DeLuca, provides counseling, workshops, and other related services.
For WalletHub, he dispenses expert advice on how to use that financial literacy to plan your holiday spending.
