2017 Calendar

Most stores start selling their calendars for the new year in October. Come January, just about everyone remembers they need a new agenda or planner. Like school stationery deals, you can also expect calendar specials! But not all stores push down their prices, due to demand, some go up in price. You need to shop around!

Clothing Sales

You can expect to save a lot on clothing in January, because that is when most stores have big sales following the festive season madness. Retailers are also making room for new stock coming in for Autumn – which is just around the corner.

Fitness equipment

Thanks to thousands of people making New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, stores know January is the best time to entice customers with deals on fitness equipment.


Be on the lookout for “white sales” in January, with some stores offering major price cuts on beddings and towels.

Valentine’s Day gifts

January is the perfect time to buy your Valentine’s Day gifts, because come February you can expect to fork out an arm and a leg for one night of passion. Stores are already stocking up on Valentine’s Day goodies, and they are likely to be cheaper over the next few weeks. You can also take advantage of those end-of-year sales still happening in January to buy things like jewellery and perfume.
