TIP: What to buy (and not buy) in January

A new year brings a new opportunity to shop smart and save money.

 

Buy: Christmas decorations

Stock up on holiday closeouts if you have space to store extra stuff until next December.

 

Buy: TVs

Retailers normally offer ‘discounts’ before the big game (Super Bowl happens Feb 3).    BTW: LG is slashing the prices of its 55- and 65-inch B8 OLED TV

Buy: Fitness gear

Look for deals on fitness wear and equipment.

BTW: January is a solid time to sign up for a gym at a discount.

*But don’t spend that money unless you’re sure you’ll use the membership. All too often, new members lock themselves in for a full year, then stop showing up after a month or two.

 

Shop: White sales

January is when department stores host “white sales” to clear out their inventory of sheets, towels, blankets and more. Expect savings to be especially deep on clearance items – offering 60%-70% off bedding basics.

 

Skip: Toys

Skip: Mattresses

Great deals on mattresses happen in February around Presidents Day.

NOTE: Mattress deals will return in May (over Memorial Day weekend) and in September (over Labor Day weekend).
