Get Stuff We Love
If you’ve got Valentine’s Day on your mind, you’re in luck. February is the time of year to save big on romantic trips and sparkly jewels, but you can also stock up on home necessities such as mattresses and appliances. You just have to know where to go and when to buy.
Presidents Day sales translate into big savings in a variety of categories. This is the time of year to swap out your mattress (you should be doing this every seven years or so anyway), upgrade your furniture and take advantage of housewares sales. Plus, if you resolved to work out more in 2017, you’re in luck. You can find some good discounts on at-home fitness equipment as well.
