Thankfully, there are lots of ways to save, too. The deals, specials and coupons you find on this page will keep your house -- and your bank account -- looking good.
Finding the Best Appliance Deals
You might think the holiday shopping season is all about electronics and toys, but it turns out December is actually one of the best times to buy both small and large home appliances. Be sure to check Best Buy and Costco when shopping for appliance package deals, as they actually tend to have better prices than most of the home appliance stores. December is also a great time to find deals on gas grills.
Finding the Best Furniture Deals
If you’re in the market for new furniture or a cheap mattress, be sure to shop the summer sales. Typically, Memorial Day offers killer mattresses deals, while June and July are better for sofas, tables, beds, etc. In terms of where to buy, you could go the Ikea cheap furniture route, but Sears and Sears Outlets tend to have some of the best furniture discounts. Also, don’t rule out Amazon. They have so much to choose from that it’s not hard to find an amazing deal. (Amazon is also a great place to find small appliance and vacuum cleaner deals, by the way.) The summer months are also great for buying dishes, home decor and new carpeting. However, if it’s bedding and other linens that you’re after, you’ll likely find better deals during “white sales” in January.
10 Household Items You Don't Want to Overpay For
1) Keurig Coffee Makers: A mid-level home model, like the Keurig K250 retails for $129.99 and boasts a 40-ounce water reserve, touchscreen and variable brew settings. And there are a lot of deals out there on Keurigs. It’s almost never a good idea to pay full price on these coffee makers. We’ve seen sales on the same Keurig K250 for more than $30 off!
2) Printers: The Dell E525W Color Laser All-in-One Printer is solid option that has been available for $120 recently. Dell is currently selling it for $200, but MSRP is $329, so at $120 it’s a really slick deal. Even the toner can be had for a savings. While you may not get name brand toner, you could be saving around $40 per toner cartridge.
3) Water Filter Devices: Brita filters probably see the most frequent deals; the classic 10-cup Brita filter pitcher retails for around $24, but can be had easily for around $13 (and sometimes even cheaper).
4) Tool Sets: With Craftsman Mechanic’s tool sets, you’ll be able to rebuild your whole car from the side of the road. OK, maybe not, but it has everything you need in a tool set. Unfortunately, they usually come with a hefty price tag. Thankfully, there are frequent deals on many of them, so setting up a Deal Alert is not a bad idea.
5) Blenders: All the power and flexibility blenders have means a pretty steep price tag. Take the Ninja Mega Kitchen System for example. This high-end blender retails for between $170 and $230, depending on where you buy. We’ve seen regular deals on Ninja Mega Kitchen Systems for as low as $130.
