What to Buy in JanuaryThe first month of the new year is a great time for deals, if you know where to look.
Here are a few items you should add to your January shopping list, according to ConsumerReports.org and Dealnews.com:
Holiday items: There is no better time to pick up your holiday d�cor, cards, wrapping paper and more. This is the month to buy that replacement tree or upgrade to LED holiday lights. You’ll find deep discounts ranging in many cases from 50% to 75% off. Replenish your holiday stock now.
Bedding and Bath Towels: Ready to update your linen closet? January white sales are when sheets, blankets, comforter sets and towels are up to 75% off. Now is the time to indulge in some higher thread-count sheets or fluffier towels for less.
Winter apparel: You’ll find coats and winter boots on sale at most retailers for anywhere from 30% to 50% off. In addition to deeply discounted clearance sales, some online retailers are also offering free shipping.
Gym memberships: With everyone resolving to get fit, most gyms, looking for new members, offer some of their best deals in January. Deals range from waiving fees and free trials to offering discounted rates or tossing in “bonus” services for free.
Hotel getaway: Off-peak season means a great deal for you at hotels, so January is the best time to book a special weekend getaway.
