Sales and Deals for January

sale cycle calendar


One of the biggest secrets to saving money is knowing the sale cycles! Buy when the price is at it’s lowest and you will save every time!

January is a great month to save on….

Christmas clearance items:  Not all stores are cleared out for Christmas the day after Christmas. Keep your eye out for Toys on clearance, wrapping paper, decorations, lights, ornaments, candy and much more. Look for the Target toy clearance sale in January too! One of my favorite clearance items to find is Glade candles. You can often get them FREE when you combine these coupons with the clearance price.

Health Products: Diet shakes, diet bars, vitamins, medicines for cold and flu season and smoking cessation medications.

Fitness Equipment: It is time to think about getting healthy again! You can find workout games, Fitness DVD’s, fitness equipment and fitness apparel at great prices.

Quaker products: Look for a sale on Quaker products at your local grocery store and stock up on granola bars, oatmeal and cereal for a great sale price!

Super Bowl Party : Super Bowl is around the corner and stores will have sales on food and snacks for Super Bowl. Looks for deals on  soda, crackers, chips, dip, salsa, cream cheese, crackers and cookies. This is also  a good time to get a new TV if you have been looking for one.

Linens: Towels and bedding tend to go on sale.

Semi-annual sales: at Bath & Body Works and Gap and many other stores in your local mall.

Winter Clothes: Look for winter clothes on clearance and stock up for your kids, spouse or yourself for next year.

Storage Bins: Storage bins go on sale every January. January is a great time to clean out the house and put things away.

Snow Sleds: Get great deals on gear for the Winter Snow now that we are in the middle of the season.

Diapers for Babies: January usually brings a good sale on diapers and other baby products. Albertsons usually runs a baby promotion in January.

Cleaning Products: Cleaning products tend to go on sale in January.

    I would LOVE to hear more about sale cycles for the whole year so I could start planning my stock ups better. I belong to a food storage group that will be meeting soon to plan our year. We decide what we will focus on each month and everyone puts $20 towards it. We take turns being the buyer and search for the best bang for everyone’s buck, but sometimes we plan an item for a monh tha doesn’t have the best sale because we don’t know the sale cycles. Any help you could provide would be amazing!

    I agree seeing the whole year would be very beneficial for planning purposes.

    I’ve been very happy with the clothing sales this month. ‘Winter Clothes’ seems to encompass almost everything but shorts and swimwear.

    Shopping Macy’s clearance racks with a savings pass from the sunday paper has netted women’s clothes in the 3-4$ range for great quality tops and 7-10$ range for pants. Today at H&M they took an (unadvertised? 50% off their lowest clearance prices at the register). 2 pairs of women’s pants for 2.50$ each, marked down from 35$. Old Navy is also great for clearance right now.
