The holidays are officially over. Although you may have no interest in shopping after accomplishing all of your gift shopping during the holiday season, January is a great time to catch some fabulous deals.
With the holidays over, you will find clearance prices on all holiday-related goods, along with gifts options that you can stock up on for future use. January is also the time that many retailers start marking down apparel for the current winter season to make room for spring clothing. So you will find plenty of nice prices on everything from sweatshirts to coats to boots during this time.
January also brings White Sales, which offer discounted prices on items for the home, including bed linens, towels, home décor, and organizational tools. Stores know that many people have made New Year’s resolutions to get in shape and lose weight, so you will find discounted prices on health and fitness equipment. So if you are looking to stock up on holiday supplies for next Christmas, winter clothing, to give your home a fresh makeover, or to improve your physique, January is the ideal time to do it.
Two of the largest mass retailers, Target and Wal-Mart, are known for their post-holiday deals.
