January Savings

Everyone knows that the week after Christmas is a good time to stock up on wrapping paper, Christmas cards and decorations for next year’s holiday. The month of January is also a good time to get good deals on winter clothes and boots. However, it is also a good time for other savings.

  1. Jewelry Retailers make a great deal of their profit during holidays such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day. There is less store traffic during January, so it’s a good time to pick up bargains.
  2. Exercise Equipment After the holidays, when many people are hoping to shed some of the weight they gained, stores offer discounts on fitness items.
  3. Bicycles Since not too many people enjoy biking in the cold, stores have sales to draw business.
  4. Calendars Wait to buy your calendars until January when their gift giving appeal is over, and stores want to get rid of them.
  5. Linens If you wish you had flannel sheets to survive the winter, now is the time to get them at a reduced price. Comforters and other bedding are usually on sale now too.
  6. Housing Winter is typically a slow time of year for buying or selling real estate, particularly in cold climates. But, if you’re in the market for a new home, it may be a great time to find your dream house.
