The Deals of January
January can be a good time to find deals on lots of products. For example, TVs go on sale as retailers clear out showrooms for new models that will arrive in spring. Department stores slash prices on linens by up to 60%. And even weddings are cheaper this month.
For a complete list of what goes on sale in January, see our Best Buys of Winter slide show. If you find items that have been on your "to buy" list, there are plenty of Web sites you can use to find deals on them.
