What Not to Buy in January

Toys

Toy deals were hot last month, but you probably won’t see many worthwhile toy deals this month, unless they are holiday-specific items on clearance. The good news is your little ones are probably set for a while with all of their holiday gifts.

Mattresses

Great deals on mattresses occur in February, during President’s Day sales. If February is too soon for your budget, mattress deals will likely return in May, over Memorial Day weekend, and in September, over Labor Day weekend.
