With a special holiday involving flowers, chocolate, and hearts coming up soon, you may have been planning to spend your extra money on Valentine’s Day items over the next couple of weeks. If you’re hoping to save money in February, though, those are definitely not the items that will be on sale… at least not during the first half of the month! Retailers are motivated to clear out winter inventory to make room for spring’s arrival. Anything cold weather-related – heavy coats, gloves, hats, boots, and ski gear – gets marked down in price. Home improvement stores discount grills, snow blowers, firewood, and more. Every part of the year has items that tend to be available for lower-than-usual prices, and the last full month of winter is no exception.

Every part of the year has items that tend to be available for lower-than-usual prices, and the last full month of winter is no exception. Here is an expanded list of things to buy on sale in February:

Here is a shortlist of things to buy on sale in February:

  • Gas GrillsYou might grill all year long, but many people don’t… or they won’t replace a broken or worn-out grill until later in the year. Because of this reduced demand for grills, home improvement stores tend to mark them down in February. Inspect your grill and see if you might need a replacement before the summertime grilling season starts.
  • Air ConditionersUnless you live in a hot climate, you’re not using your air conditioner in February. But now is the perfect time to budget for a new AC unit if yours struggled last summer. Retailers offer discounts to clear inventory.
  • Winter Outdoor EquipmentSince the winter is coming to an end, stores are slashing prices on skis, ice skates, winter coats, boots, and more in order to make room for the types of equipment that people use in the balmier spring. Also, stock up on mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves to use for the rest of this year and for next year’s winter season.
  • Cleaning Supplies and ServicesMost of us are getting a bit antsy, waiting for spring’s arrival. What is one of the first things we do once the weather warms up? We throw open the windows and start our spring cleaning! Not only will cleaning supplies be on sale, but so will things like carpet cleaning and other housekeeping services, so if the job is too much for you to do on your own, you can indulge in professional cleaning with less guilt!
  • Mattresses: New mattress models arrive in March and April, so retailers deeply discount existing inventory in February. Replace that lumpy old mattress!
  • Flowers and ChocolateDon’t get your hopes up; you won’t see sales on these types of romantic items until after Valentine’s Day. But you might as well pick some up for yourself after the holiday: Particularly if you’re going to be doing some heavy cleaning, you’ll want to decorate with fresh flowers and reward yourself with a few delicious chocolates afterward!
  • Electronics: The lead-up to the Super Bowl means TV deals. And new electronics models arrive later in spring, so retailers discount existing inventory. Shop for laptops, phones, TVs, and more.
  • Furniture: Most furniture manufacturers launch their new designs in the spring. This means that big retailers need to discount last year’s designs to make way for the new spring line.
  • Televisions: towards the end of the month new tv models are released and it is a great time to pick up a deal.

During the month of February, keep your eyes open for Super Bowl sales in the early part of the month, then Presidents’ Day sales later on. A lot of what will be on sale will consist of electronics, but you’re likely to see other great deals as well.
