January is by far my favorite month to shop because I can find amazing clearance deals at almost any store. I thought I would share a few of my favorite sales that I look forward to each and every January. I’d love to hear what sales you look forward to in January too!
Target Christmas & General Clearance
I love, love, love me some Target clearance shopping (you probably already knew that though, huh?). January is such a great month for clearance at Target because they are cleaning out so many of the winter and Christmas items to make way for the new items that come in for Spring. You will find clearance deals in pretty much every single department. I have highlighted just a few of the departments that have big markdowns in January over at All Things Target.
My all-time favorite clearance sale is when Target marks their Christmas items down to 90% off. There is a good chance that the 90% off markdown will be happening Saturday, January 4th this year.
You can’t forget the BIG Target Toy Clearance that happens in January every year. If you haven’t heard about this great clearance sale, you can find everything you need to know if the following posts:
- 70% off Target Toy Clearance (January & July)

- Tips for shopping the day of the 70% off toy sale
- See what my husband was able to pick up at the clearance last January
Walmart 75% off Christmas Clearance
Another Christmas clearance sale I love to shop is when Walmart marks down their Christmas items to 75% off. One of the reasons I love this sale, because they also include many of their bath and body sets as part of the clearance. My daughter and I like to shop for make-up bags, lip balms and bath & body gift sets that she can give to her friends for their birthdays.
You can view the items we picked up last year at the 75% off Walmart Christmas clearance to get an idea of the items you may find. Last year the markdown took place around January 3rd and 4th, so hopefully we will see the markdown take place soon. I will be sure to let you know when it happens.
Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale
The Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual sale is already in full swing, it usually starts right after Christmas and runs for a couple of week. Generally, I like to shop the sale later rather than sooner and that is because they usually release better coupons towards the end of the sale.
For example, when the sale first started, they had released a $10 off $40 coupon. They tend to release a $10 off $30 coupon later during the sale. In fact, they just released a $10 off $30 coupon, so now would be a great time to shop this sale.
Barnes & Noble Clearance
I love book stores, I could spend hours just browsing at all the books, games and more. Usually right after Christmas Barnes & Noble will mark down Christmas books, calendars, some toys, games and puzzles down to 50% off. A little later these items get marked down to 75% off. Last year, they went all crazy and marked down many of these items to only $2. Seriously…only $2.
I was able to score so many amazing deals last year, I even picked up a couple of Elf on the Shelf sets for only $2. I am hoping the same awesome markdown happens this year too. Make sure you check out what I was able to score last year at the Barnes & Noble Clearance HERE and HERE. The $2 markdown took place around the very end of January.
Yankee Candle 75% off Clearance
I stumbled upon the Yankee Candle clearance sale one year and I have been shopping it every year. My favorite part of this sale is the gift sets, they mark them all down to 50% off right after Christmas and then eventually they all get marked down to 75% off.
The 75% off markdown usually happens in the middle of January. I love that when shopping online they have a flat shipping fee of only $5, since many of the candles are heavy and expensive to ship I consider their shipping fee an excellent deal.
