January’s best shopping deals & discounts

Now that the holidays are over, perhaps it’s time to do a little shopping for yourself!  And just because the holidays are behind us, doesn’t mean the deals are…you can always rely on sales on “New Year/New You” related items, like those tied to fitness, wellness and self-care, so if you’re up for some self-improvement, this is your month.

 

The one category that is missing this month is White Sales. In all my years of doing this, I have never seen so few sales on bedding and bath items, so this could be a supply chain issue playing out in real-time.  My hope is that shipments will arrive, and those white sales we were expecting will pop up later in the month.  For now, here are some of the best deals in January (and which categories to avoid).

What Not to Buy in January

Toys

Toy deals were hot last month, so you probably won’t see many worthwhile toy deals this month unless they are holiday-specific items on clearance. The good news is your little ones are probably set for a while with all of their holiday gifts.

Mattresses

The next time you’ll see mattress deals will be in February during President’s Day sales. If February is too soon for your budget, mattress deals will likely return in May, over Memorial Day weekend and in September over Labor Day weekend.
