Saving money is a big deal at my house, with three kids and being a mom who works part-time out of the house, I am always looking for a good bargain. I know you can save money cutting coupons but there are other ways to save money you may not know about! You can actually save money all year.

Did you know that every month offers some sort of special discount or deal on something? Most times you might come across things for sale and you don’t even realize it’s part of a monthly clearance that happens every year. Here is a list composed of each month’s special deals so you can be sure to stock up and save money all year!

Save Money ALL Year

January: Christmas and other winter decorations, White sales happen at big department stores (items like towels, sheets, bedding, throw pillows, flannels, PJs, hats/scarves/winter items), perfume, dishes, and then electronics are also on clearances as new ones are being released. Cars also tend to be on sale. Toys left over in stock from Christmas also clearance out.
