What to Stock Up on in January

Oatmeal ~ January is national oatmeal month so you know oatmeal will be on sale. Stock up when you see a sale and really save. After you stock up on oatmeal make your own oatmeal packets.

Christmas Decoration ~ This month Christmas items will continue to be on sale and heavily discounted. You can find gift sets that can work as presents for birthdays or other occasions.

You’ll find Christmas decorations on sale. Pick them up at rock-bottom prices and be ready for next year. And you can pack them away when you put your Christmas decorations.

Also be sure to declutter your old decorations too.

Pick up red and green paper products to use at Valentine’s day and St. Patrick’s day. Items that are a generic color can be used at different times of the year.

Christmas Baking Items ~ Baking items will be on sale too. Some boxes might have Christmas decorations on the box or Christmas sprinkles. But no one is likely to care about that.

Items like cake mixes, cupcake wrappers and such can be used for other occasions too and at discounted prices, I’m sure no one will even notice.

Diet Food ~ With everyone’s new year resolutions there is sure to be diet food on sale. Think of items associated with a popular diet, like lean cuisine, weight watcher and such. These should be a very good price this month.

Snack Food ~ It seems funny that snack food and diet food would be on sale in the same month but with the big game coming up you’re sure to find lots of snack foods on sale.

Items like chips, crackers, soda, cheese, dips and more. Stock up for your kids snacks and for brown bag lunches.

Winter Apparel ~ Look for deep discounts on winter apparel this month. Items that you can use now like sweaters, coats, hats, and gloves.

You might also find overstocked items that didn’t sell well at Christmas on sale too. Be sure to purchase extra items for gifts for next Christmas. Or for birthdays coming up soon.

Cold and Flu Medicine ~ With cold and flu season here there is sure to be deals on all kinds of cold medicine. Stock up so you’ll be prepared when the sniffles hit your house. But also stock up enough to get you through the year and really save.

You can grab these items to enjoy yourself, give to others, or use in baking. Think about Valentine’s Day that is coming up.

Toys ~ After Christmas sales on toys can be a great way to save on gift items for the whole year and even maybe until next Christmas if you are good at hiding them and remembering where they are all year. Stock up on toys to give at Birthday parties for the whole year.

Electronics ~ Find good deals on electronics this time of year too. Often you can find a good deal on computers, tablets and more as the new year starts.

If your electronics are getting old and slow be sure to look for the best deals and get a new one without having to pay full price.

In Season Produce ~ When you purchase produce when it’s in season it not only tastes better but is also less expensive. Items in season this month are carrots, celery, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, chard, kale, kiwi, and spinach.

That’s the list of what to stock up on January. When you are out shopping or looking over the sales ads be on the lookout for the items above so you can stock up and save all year long.

  1. I’m so glad to see that computers are at their lowest prices right now! I’ve been needing a new computer for a while now, but other things have gotten in the way (car repairs, tree trimming, etc.). Hopefully I can get a good deal!

  2. Thanks for sharing this list, Shelly! We would like to buy a new Christmas tree for next year. We saw them on sale online at Lowe’s so I think we’re going to get a good deal there. 🙂

    We had bought a new tree on Black Friday weekend, and it was a total FAIL. Let’s just say it lasted about 2 weeks before the stand gave way and it ended up on the floor and some of our precious family ornaments ended up broken! 🙁 So frustrating. I can laugh at the situation now, and we were able to return the tree to Target and get out money back but really??? Black Friday merchandise is not always as it seems.

    1. Oh no, I’m sorry to hear about your broken ornaments. That’s awful. I don’t think the quality of some of the Christmas trees is very good.

      We too purchased a Christmas tree just a year ago and it hasn’t lasted the base isn’t good and it tips to one side. The fiber optic lights and burnt out on part of the tree after one year. I’m hoping to find a new tree too. Our previous one lasted 10 years so it was disappointed that this one was not as well made.
