I hope everyone had a happy Valentine’s Day/Presidents’ Day weekend! It wasn’t until yesterday, after having watched dozens of commercials for Presidents’ Day sales over the weekend, that it occurred to me that I have not yet shared my buying guide for the month of February!
So first and foremost, I hope you’ll forgive me for posting this a couple of weeks late, and I promise to get back on track next month! (But I do take solace in the fact that there’s still plenty of time to take advantage of this month’s deals, because many of them are holiday-related or post-holiday offers.!)
Today I have 9 items to tell you about that are known to get discounted in February. If you’ve been planning on buying any of these items, keep your eyes peeled in the next week or two for a chance to snag a great deal! 🙂
For more monthly buying guides, check back in around the beginning of each month throughout 2021!
February Is The Best Month To Buy…
Furniture manufacturers release their new designs every spring, which means retailers need to clear out last year’s designs early in the year. That’s good news for you, because it means you can find great deals on last year’s models during the month of February!
2. Lobster & Steak
Grocery stores stock up on more expensive types of meat and seafood in early February in preparation for Valentine’s Day. But after Valentine’s Day, stores often discount their leftover stock of these items.
So if you head to the grocery store this week, you’re likely to score a great deal on steaks, lobsters, and more! You can whip up a fancy “surf ’n turf” meal for an unusually reasonable price. 🙂
Most people think about buying a humidifier earlier in the winter, so you will see them start to go on sale in February. But you can take advantage of sale prices on a humidifier now, and still have plenty of wintertime left to experience the benefits! I recently bought one for my living room, and now I can’t imagine living through the winter without it!
Some manufacturers and wireless carriers offer buy-one-get-one deals on smartphones during February. These deals are aimed at sweethearts for Valentine’s Day, but anyone can (and should) take advantage of them, especially if you’ve been needing a replacement!
After Valentine’s Day, you’ll be able to find steep discounts on chocolates in almost any grocery store. Stock up on all your favorites!
Okay, so you might not find huge discounts on perfume and cologne themselves. However, you can often take advantage of great free gifts with the purchase of perfume or cologne during the month of February! Some of the free gifts I’ve come across while browsing include tote and duffel bags, makeup palettes, travel-size cosmetics, and more.
7. Canned Food
Did you know that February is National Canned Food Month? You can celebrate by snagging great deals on canned, dried, and bulk foods this month at many grocery stores.
Stock up on all your favorites, like beans, tomatoes, corn, and more. (It’s also a great time to buy a few extras to donate to your local food bank!)
8. Tax Software
You’ll find the best discounts on tax software during February. Take advantage of these sales and get your taxes done ahead of time!
9. Clothes & Linens
Shopping Presidents’ Day sales is a great opportunity to score discounts on clothes, linens, home goods, and even laptops. Many retailers keep their sales going for a week or two after the fact, so keep your eyes peeled!
Which deals are you looking forward to this month?
