2 min read
Happy New Year! A new year is the time for new beginnings, new habits, and new goals. Especially this year, many consumers are looking towards 2021 with optimism and seeking ways to ensure the new year starts off on the right foot. With this in mind, many consumers take their newfound motivation to purchase products that will help them along their journey to a fresh start! Whether you’ve decided to get in shape, tidy your garage or prepare for the year ahead, we’ve rounded up the best products to purchase in January with lots of deals (check saving money and planning smart off your new years list!)
The best time to buy holiday supplies is always right after the holiday is over. Be ahead of the game for next year by taking inventory of your Christmas wrapping paper, decorations and artificial trees as you’re packing them up- is there anything you need for next year? Almost out of wrapping paper? Has your artificial tree seen one too many Christmas mornings? Shop online retailers like Home Depot for deals on Christmas trees to replace an old one. It might be a challenge to find these big items in store as retailers quickly stock their shelves for the next season, but you can find plenty of deals online as retailers try to clear out their warehouse for new items. In store, check the clearance aisles for leftover wrapping paper and decorations. Hit drug stores like CVS and Rite Aid to find discounts on Christmas candy and chocolates.
Fitness Equipment and Activewear
For the best deals and the best selection on all things fitness, from apparel to equipment, January is the time to build up your fitness supply. With New Years Resolutions, retailers have plenty of deals on everything you need to reach your fitness goals. You’ll also find that retailers have the largest selection in January as they roll out new collections, especially online fashion retailers like Old Navy (which is now offering up to 50% off activewear). Amazon and Target are also offering discounts on fitness equipment if you’re looking to build up your home gym, which we predicted will be a consumer trend in 2021 in this post on why at-home workouts are here to stay.
Right next to fitness, home organization is another popular New Years resolution for consumers and retailers jump on the opportunity to discount various kitchen, closet and bath organization and storage products. For bigger project organization such as a garage or basement, Home Depot and Lowe’s have deals on heavy duty storage bins or shelving units.
Bedding and Bath Linens
Sheets, throw pillows, bedding and more bedroom and bath essentials are typically on sale during January, thanks to White Sales that actually date back to January 1878 (fun fact: they’re called “White Sales” because when they first began, only white linens were on sale). Check out stores (in person or online) like Bed Bath and Beyond and Target for discounts on these items.
Going hand in hand with fitness equipment and activewear, wellness products like vitamins, protein powder and supplements are also discounted during the month of January. What better way to accompany your new fitness routine with a multivitamin? Especially this year, many consumers have decided to take their health more seriously and are looking to these wellness products for a little help. Target has 25% off select vitamins and look for “special deal”, “rollback” or “reduced price” on Walmart’s selection of wellness products.
What about the other 11 months out of the year? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Each month we’ll be bringing you the best products to purchase with the best deals around, to help you save money every month of the year.
