By  | 


We’ve only got a little time left in January, but it’s still prime time to score some fabulous deals in stores and online. Planning ahead for purchases can save you lots of money and hassle in the long run. The folks at the Penny Hoarder website have compiled a list of the best deals to be had in January. Here are three of the best things to buy before January is over.

1. TVs

Hosting a Super Bowl party? Need to update your television? January is the best time to buy TVs and other electronics. At the annual Consumer Electronics Show, all of the latest and greatest models of electronics are unveiled, leaving the slightly older models to be deeply discounted by retailers. As long as you’re not too picky about having the latest model, this is the month to upgrade your electronics.

2. Linens

According to The Penny Hoarder, the yearly tradition of hosting a white sale dates back to the 1870s, when linens were only available in white. But, modern white sales include linens and home goods in every color of the rainbow. Also, don’t be swayed by sheets with super-high thread counts – those claims of quality may not be true and you’ll likely be just as happy with a moderately-priced set of sheets.

3. Gym Memberships

Is getting in shape on your to-do list for 2018? This is the month to score the best deals at your local gyms or fitness centers. “In January, you’re likely to find gyms waiving extra fees (which can range from $10 to $100 per year, depending on the gym), offering a free introductory period, or discounted rates to make it easy to jump into a year of fitness,” Elizabeth Harper, contributing writer of writes.  Harper adds, “And if you don’t see any deals offered, ask!”
