Look no further than your nearest department store (or better yet, online), where plans are afoot to lure shoppers with exciting sales and money-saving bargains at annual January white sales.

Originated by 19th century retailers to help drum up business during a normally quiet January, department stores today continue the tradition with great success by offering deep discounts on sheets and bed covers, pillows and pillow cases, towels and more.

This year, look for January white sales to begin on Wednesday, January 1, 2025 and continue all month long.

January white sales - it ain't just linens

Come January, look for major department stores like JCPenney, Macy's, Target, and others to publish circulars. Read consumer reports in local newspapers, or watch for local TV shopping tips to learn where and when the best January white sales are happening in your area.

Also lookl to retailers like Pottery Barn and Nordstrom Rack for great sales on bedding during January.

Store hours on January 1 are usually the same for most stores, but some may close early so it's best to call ahead or search online for this year's opening and closing times.

As always, watch for online January white sales that often come with free shipping. Also don't forget to surf your favorite online comparison shopping site or hunt around for online codes & coupons for additional savings.

Besides linens, sheets and towels, also look for a whopping 30 to 60% off everything from furniture and drapes, to housewares and luggage. They, too, are often included under the "January White Sale" banner this month.

While you're shopping the white sales, also look for other January bargains to be had. That includes the last of the after Christmas sales on gift wrap, holiday cards, toys and electronics along with inventory clearances of winter clothes, shoes and boots

As brides-to-be already know, December/January is also bridal season featuring the best buys of the year on wedding dresses. With new designs coming in, and last year's bridal fashion still on the racks, the variety and price selection are the best you'll find all year. Also check out sample sales, where you can score gowns up to 90% off usually on wedding dress sizes 8-12.

Final Note:: Although January white sales go on month-long, it's the early shopper who stands a better chance of finding exactly what they're looking for - before the inventory runs low.

Happy New Year and happy shopping!

The best times to buy - seasonal sales


After browsing the circulars, make the most of January white sales by preparing a detailed list of what you need to buy or replace. Create your list by taking a household inventory, and then make a separate list for friends and loved ones to plan ahead for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries or other occasions.

For example, if you know anybody who is getting engaged, planning a wedding, going off to college, or moving to a new home - use January white sales to buy impressive gift sets of sheets, towels, curtains, and other household items they made need.

If you have enough closet space, you can even have the gifts beautifully wrapped and stored away ahead of time so you're ready when the big event arrives.

Happy shopping!
