Best deals of January, where to find them

Retailers are clearing out last year's inventory to move on; and that can mean big savings. The editors of Deal News say shopping this month For Valentine's gifts will save you a lot of money. If your sweetheart wants diamonds or pearls or a name brand watch, check out the jewelry counter at department stores. You can find a lot of markdowns on left over holiday jewelry. The closer we get to February, the higher prices will inch back up.

January is a good time to find fitness equipment deals that rival Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Good spots to check include NordicTrack's website with some items up to half off right now.
