Post-holiday deals

The holiday shopping season is long gone, but the deals are not.

Major appliances and electronics are often discounted in the New Year to make room for new models. TVs become cheaper throughout January leading up to the Super Bowl.

Winter White Sale:
Retailers clear out the cold-weather bedding, towels and home goods to make room for spring linens. In the market for a down comforter? Now is the time to buy.

Look for the best deals at major department stores such as Macy's, J.C Penney, Lord & Taylor and American Eagle. All winter items will be marked down as retailers want it pushed out.

Planning a spring break trip? Now is the time to shop for swimwear. While it may seem odd, the early deals on next season's items are here. Buyers will begin seeing promotions on bathing suits in January.
