Winter Blues? Feel Budget Love this February!

Is the cold weather bringing you down? What can be more comforting than lying in bed snuggly warm – planning some money-saving shopping? Love is in the air this winter with great deals for your budget.

Aside from after-Christmas clearances, February offers the first shopping events for consumers to take advantage of huge savings as retailers clear out their winter stock to prep for warmer weather. Here’s what to expect this month!

Mattress and Bedding Sales

Mattress and bedding deals vary from store to store but some of the bigger retailers are offering up to 60% off their stock during Presidents Day weekend. If you were wanting to refresh your bedroom or create the perfect guest room, now is the time of year to buy. 


Every year Super Bowl Sunday starts a flood of television sales. Retailers typically continue these sales through Presidents’ Day. Whether you’re upgrading to a bigger TV or adding a new one in the house, now is the time to buy! Hit up Craigslist to get even better deals on perfectly good used TVs. Online retailers like Target or Amazon are also offering huge discounts on tax preparation needs like software and printers.

Winter Items

Now is the PERFECT time to stock up on new winter clothing items and sports gear. Every store selling winter clothes wants to clear out these items so they can start offering spring/summer clothes. Look for deals as high as 70% off these items. Take some time and contact your favorite local clothing retailers to find out when they expect the inventory to start rotating heavily.

Love is in the Air!

What would an article about February be without mentioning love? Dating sites are offering up to 35% off, or even free, memberships.

Don’t let Ol’ Man Winter get you down this year. When you plan smart, you buy smart!
