Focus on making every day of 2018 special…& maybe go shopping!


Whoever said money can’t buy happiness just didn’t know where to shop…or when! The annual January advertisements for gym memberships claim “New Year, New You”, there’s a good reason this theme is repeated year after year. Since the New Year is a good time to make big changes and people often want to work off their holiday eating, diets and fitness are a recurring theme.

According to January is the optimal time to spend your money on the following:

  • clothes or winter apparel,
  • linens, bedding and towels
  • gym memberships

The site has a longer list of January shopping musts which include:

  • Holiday décor
  • Toys
  • vacations
  • flooring and carpeting
  • and cars

Also on their list; clothes, linens and gym memberships.

Interestingly, suggests putting off purchases of phones, computers and TVs this month. The reason being that new models of phones are generally released in September and that’s when the discounts show up. Computer deals occur during back-to-school sales. As for TVs, you may find a Super Bowl discount during January, but the optimal time for a television purchase is in November.

So the jury is still out on buying electronics in January, but “New Year, New You” continues to resonate.

Check back often as I will be sharing the top shopping picks for the best bargains in 2018 in the beginning of every month.
