Can you believe January is here? Where did this year go? Well, with the new month, comes new deals. Below are the top 6 things you will want to purchase in January:
Christmas Decor: Stores will want to move out the holiday decor both big and small. Look for sales up to 90% off on trees, holiday candies, ornaments, stockings, and more.
Fitness Equipment & Gym Memberships: I actually purchased my gym membership 2 years ago in JANUARY! It was a New Years Resolution of mine. Since so many people tend to have weight loss or getting healthy on their resolution list, the gyms offer some amazing deals to get you in the door. That is the same with fitness equipment in stores and online.
Linens: Look for deep discounts on both high end and mid-level quality linens in January. You will notice stores like Macy’s and Kohl’s will start clearancing their inventory of linens and offer coupon codes to stack. This is a great time to buy towels, bed linens, and more.
Kitchen Appliances: Both small and large appliances will be on sale this month as January tends to focus on items for the home. Check places like Lowes, Sears, and Macy’s for the best deals.
Winter Apparel: Stores want to be sure they sell all of their winter apparel to make room for Spring lines. Look for coats, sweaters, and boots to be discounted toward the end of the month.
Air conditioners: Now is the time to purchase your air conditioner. No one is thinking of air conditioners in January, so, sales are down. Stores as well as companies that install them will discount them to move inventory.
Items include 3 sturdy board books: “Who Lives Here?”, “Music on the Go” and “What is Black and White?” along with a squishy plush book, “Baby is SO Big”, discovery cards with ring, and an informative parent guide.
As a limited time holiday gift to you, we are including a special compilation of holiday hits from the best-selling Baby Einstein album “Baby Santa” with your order.
Customers will receive a link to download the MP3 tracks on the order confirmation page and confirmation email.

It’s the holiday season. Some people in our lives can be more difficult to buy for than others. It can be hard to purchase for our kids teachers, because we don’t spend much time with them to get a good idea of their likes and dislikes. And, if you’re like me and have multiple kiddos and/or kids that are in middle or high school and have multiple teachers, it can get expensive. But, it doesn’t have to be. I put together some budget friendly gift ideas for you:
School supplies: Due to enormous budget cuts, many teachers have to come out of their own pockets for school supplies. Why not lessen their burden by replenishing these items this holiday season? Send in a basket with tissues, pencils, hand sanitizer, crayons, and more. I tend to over purchase when school begins, and have plenty to donate mid-year.
Gift cards: Teachers love gift cards! I’m sure any teacher you ask would rather go grab a nice massage or Starbucks coffee with a gift card, then get another coffee mug, right? Good news, you can save on gift cards too. There are plenty of places on the web that sell discounted gift cards. Even Amazon and Ebay run specials on discounted gift cards.
Reusable Water Bottle: Perfect for the classroom. And, having your child decorate it makes it even more special. You can usually find a good water bottle for around $10!
Handmade appreciation cards: If you’re on a very tight budget. A special, personal, handmade card is a great gift for your child’s teacher. And, because all you need is paper and markers or crayons, you could do this for the lunchroom staff, office staff, custodians, everyone on your child’s list!
Homemade treats: Another great idea for those of us on very tight budgets. Make a plate of delicious baked goods. Place in a decorative tin which can be found at the Dollar Stores around town, and you have a great gift for under $5!
There are just a few budget-friendly gift ideas to get you thinking. Happy holidays!
Did you know that specific items are cheaper to buy in specific months throughout the year? EVEN December. I’m sure many people think that ALL the sales happen in November and December. But, there are actually specific products that are DEEPLY discounted in December. Remember, it’s the end of the year, so stores need to make room for the new 2016 versions and models of products. Check out this list:
CARS: It’s time to make room for the newer models. Now is the time to pick up a new car. Not sure how many people have money after holiday shopping, but if you’re in the market for a car, you may want to budget your spending this holiday and buy that car you’ve been wanting. Car lots have got to move inventory to make room.
Gas Grills, Portable Air Conditioners, Cooling fans: Stores are really trying to push out summer items. Who wants to keep summer stuff in stock when no one is buying it? These items can be found deeply discounted to move them out!
Champagne: Get ready for your parties and stock up on the champagne. You will find amazing deals this month.
POOLS: You may not want to swim in them right now, but winter is the best time to buy a pool! Why? Because no one is buying them and the pool stores need to keep up work. So, they are deeply discounted as well. And the quality of work is much better because they are not rushing to the next job.
TOYS: Yes, with holiday shopping brings tons of toy sales. Stock up now for birthdays and parties that will come in the new year.
