What to Buy in February.
As I’m sure many of you know, stores follow a yearly sales cycle, so with a few exceptions, you can usually anticipate finding the same products on sale at the same time every year.
Here’s what you can expect to find on sale in February:
Thanks to Valentine’s Day, February is a great time to score pretty fantastic deals on jewelry.
Pick up something pretty for your lady (or something handsome for your man!) and don’t pay an arm & a leg for it!
Home Theater Systems
The Super Bowl is in February, and that means that stores will be offering steep discounts on home theater systems to get you all set up for the big game.
If you plan to make this large purchase, be sure to check the return policy closely. Some people buy home theater systems just to watch the Super Bowl and then return them to the store – and retailers know this.
Valentine’s Day Items
Immediately after Valentine’s Day, you can expect to find prices slashed on all items with a lovey-dovey theme.
Look for clothing with “love” themes, Valentine’s Day home decor. Many stuffed animals will be very cheap, as well.
Chocolates & Candy
Other items that you can find on sale immediately after Valentines day is chocolate and candy.
Look for boxed chocolates and red/white/pink packaged candies.
Stores are trying to clear out the remainder of last year’s camera stock before the new stuff comes in and to do so, they offer great discounts this month.
Look for not only digital cameras themselves, but accessories as well.
You don’t often see people riding a motorcycle in February, right? Thanks to the snow we are usually surrounded by this time of year, motorcycles are not usually found on the roads.
Since riding is limited in the winter months, this is the best time to buy yourself a snazzy new bike, as prices will be slashed to encourage sales.
Keeping with the Valentine’s Day theme, February is a great time to find sales on fragrances.
Many stores not only offer sale prices, but they usually offer coupon discounts as well – that can be combined with the sale prices.
There will be many great deals on snacks the first week of February to take care of football fans that will be enjoying the Super Bowl.
Look for chips & dip, popcorn, frozen pizza, chicken wings and pop.
New furniture styles roll out in February and stores will be clearing out their current stock to make room for it, so expect to see some considerable savings.
It’s always a good idea to buy items when the demand for them is low.
Most of us don’t need an air conditioner in February, but this is one of the best months to buy them, as prices will be scaled way back due to lack of sales.
New video games are released at the end of the year and if you can hold off buying until February, this is when you will be able to save a great deal of cash.
Produce on sale in February:
Bananas, Grapefruit, Kiwi, Lemons, Oranges, Rhubarb, Tangerines, Beets, Cabbage, Carrots, Cucumber, Lettuce, Mushrooms, Okra, Onions, Potatoes, Squash, Sweet Potatoes
Waiting until just the right moment to buy something is one of the best things you can do to save money. Unless you need it right away, hold off on any purchase you need to make until it is the best time to buy.
