Winter Apparel

Even though there are some of us who still have a good four months left of winter, retailers treat January as the month to rid themselves of all things warm and snuggly. Now is the time to finally admit winter is here and also the time to say yes to those boots and parkas you’ve been procrastinating to buy.

Holiday Decor

Was this the last year you could get away with that tired old tree? Did you find out late on Christmas Eve that you didn’t, in fact, have enough wrapping paper? January is the time to buy those items so you’re ready for next year. Even if you’re the type to break down the tree and de-light your house as soon as December 26th strikes, now is a great time to stock up. Retailers know once one holiday is over, it’s time to start displaying items for the next holiday (can anyone say Valentine’s Day?)
