Maybe you're still paying your holiday bills, but don't pass up the chance to get the best deals of the year on these items.

January is a tough month.

It's cold. The holidays are over, you're feeling flabby, broke and pale, but you still might want to spend some cash on specific items.

According to NBC 5 Chicago, there are three items that you should look into buying in January.

  1. Bedding and linens
  2. Fitness equipment
  3. TVs and electronics

And just yesterday I saw Target's weekly ad... filled with sheets and towels.

Of course the fitness and TV thing makes sense too, getting in shape and watching the Super Bowl.

So, even if you feel like you shouldn't spend money this month, if it's on those three things, you might want to anyway.
