January is a time for people to start the new year on the right foot. Some people are resolving to lose weight. Some people are going to read more. Some want to travel the world and some want to spend more time with family.
But, if you are one of the thousands resolving to save more money this year, then this is a great place to start!
January is the time of year where people are thinking about Super Bowl parties so be on the look out for deals on foods like:
- Beer rebates (if your state allows)
It’s also National Oatmeal month so watch out for deals on brands like Quaker.
Canned food companies (like soups!) will be giving the winter season one last push for sales as well.
One of the biggest deals in the grocery store is going to be for anything weight loss related. This is going to include products like:
Looking to get a little more organized this year? Awesome because organizing products will be on sale! Find things such as
- planners (This is my favorite planner! I would be lost without it!)
- closet organizers
- plastic totes
- label makers
- filing supplies
Another popular New Year resolution is to lose weight or get healthy. Not only can you save on those items in the grocery store, but these kinds of sales will translate into other savings opportunities as well! Think
- Gym memberships (many will waive fees or give a discounted rate)
- workout DVD’s
- workout clothing (Find our favorite and the cutest workout tanks here!)
- equipment such as treadmills or weights
Need a new pair of winter boots? Now’s the time! Coats, snow suits, boots, scarves and hats will all begin to go on sale along with winter related activities like sleds, snowman kits, snowboards, etc.
Dreaming of a new piece of furniture? In January the stores are making way for the New Year’s inventory and will begin to cut the prices of last year’s models!
Speaking of last year’s models – electronics are another item that stores will begin to put on sale. If you don’t mind last year’s version this is a great time to save some money. (I just ordered this Blu Ray player for $57! It’s factory refurbished and a prior year’s model, but I saved BIG time!)
Bedding and bath towels are going to be on sale at the stores! This is a great time to pick up a few new things for your house or to add to your gift closet. Many retailers stock up on these items for the Christmas season and the excess stock is usually marked way down after Christmas!
Office supplies will generally go on sale in January as well. Although they won’t be as cheap as they are in August around back to school time, if you are needing to replenish on something this is a good time.
Don’t forget to check your store to see if they have any seasonal clearance left over! Toys, ornaments, trees, even plastic baggies and candy can be found!
