The month of January is known for its bleak weather and dreary days, but it’s also one of the best times of the year to refresh your home. 

Annual January home sales, which used to be called “white sales,” date back to the 1800s when bed linens were only available in white and sold at a discounted price when sales were usually slow.

Though it initially started on bed linens alone, the annual shopping event has evolved over time and expanded into other household items like towels, pillows and blankets.

We chatted with Sara Skirboll, Shopping & Trends Expert at RetailMeNot, for the lowdown on how to get the best deals of the season.  

Before hitting the stores, Skirboll recommends taking inventory of what you already have to avoid unnecessary purchases. Also make a separate list if you’re planning on purchasing gifts for family or friends. 

“Bedding and bath items make a great gift for newlywed couples or new graduates, so now is the time to stock up if you have weddings or graduations to attend later in the year,” she said. 

The next step is doing a bit of preliminary research to ensure that you’re actually getting the best deals. Skirboll suggests comparing prices through flyers and online promotions before hitting the stores.

“The sales will last all month long, so you have time to look into who is offering the best price,” she explained. “Plus, this makes it easier to make a decision if you plan to head in-store and shop.”

She also recommends taking a look at product reviews, so even if you’re purchasing sale items, you’ll know that they haven’t been marked down for any kind of defects or poor quality concerns.
