Best Things to Buy in January

Christmas Decorations
Christmas is over, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the stores are out of Christmas decorations. The first week of January is the best time to buy Christmas stuff while it is on sale. Buy a plastic Christmas tree now, and save yourself the time and money of buying a real tree next year. Now is a good time to replace the Christmas lights that have burned out with brand new (and inexpensive) strings of lights.

Items for Your Home
The department stores are having sales on items for your home. You might find great deals on bedding, bath sets, curtains, pillows, rugs, and perhaps even some furniture. Check the store’s websites for coupons or coupon codes that can help lower the cost of the home items you want to buy. January is the best time to buy an extra throw rug or to replace your old sofa with a brand new one.

Linens
The very first “white sale” happened in 1878 when John Wanamaker decided to try something new to attract customers to his store during what was, back then, a “lull” for retailers. At the time, linens (like bed sheets, pillow cases, and towels) came in only one color – white. Today, the linen sales include the same types of items, but of all colors and fabrics. It’s a good time to buy new towels for bathroom or new bedsheets for the guest bedroom.

Gym Memberships
Did your New Year’s resolutions include an interest in losing weight? You aren’t alone! January is the busiest month for gyms. Everyone suddenly wants a membership! The good news for shoppers is that the gyms have to compete against each other for new customers. You can pick up a gym membership now for a lower price than you can if you waited a few months. It might be a good idea to try and negotiate for an even better deal (like a waived enrollment fee).

Clearance Sales
You can find a wide variety things in the January clearance sales! Stores will sell coats and outerwear, and other winter clothing, for a low price right now. You can pick up a brand new calendar for a fraction of the price it was originally sold as. Some stores include socks, underwear, and bras as part of their linen sales.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
