What things to buy in January

When you are trying to live on a budget, it’s important that you know the best time to buy the items that you need. Each month I will put up a list of the best time to buy produce and other items. Make sure you share so you can help your friends and family save money too.

Seasonal produce: tangerines, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lemons, oranges, papayas, leeks, grapefruit

What things to buy in January

  • Video games- After Christmas game prices go down.
  • Clothing- This is when the after holiday rush has been through and there are still racks and racks of clothing left. Prices will be great but there’s no telling what the selection will be like.
  • Furniture- Retailers slash prices in anticipation of new arrivals.
  • Big appliances- Retailers try to get rid of their old models.
  • Linens and bedding- January is the best time to find discounts on bedding and linens during, “The White Sales.”
  • Motorcycles- Prices drop on these because no one wants to drive motorcycles on snowy and icy roads. If you live in a state without these conditions, there aren’t likely to be discounts during this time of year for motorcycles.
  • Winter coats- Coat prices go down the longer you wait into winter to get them. Grab one for next year now!
  • Outdoor gear- Retailers want to get rid of the old to bring in the new.
  • Perfume- Retailers slash prices on perfume during this month, right after Christmas.
  • Office furniture- Many start home based businesses this time of year right after tax time so you can often get great deals on office furniture this time of the year.
  • Gift cards- People try to sell gift cards to stores they aren’t going to use. It’s like regifting but you get paid.
  • Flooring and carpet- people want to decorate during the holidays. After Christmas, flooring goes on sale.
