What to Buy in February

There are a few products that you want to keep your eye on this month. Whether it's feeding your belly or wiping your booty, buy it when it's at the best price and be a happy saver! A few good things to buy in February include:

Retail Deals

  • Air Conditioners
  • Calendars
  • Electronics
  • Furniture
  • Heaters
    I am lusting after this Dyson heater!
  • Luggage
  • Organizational Products
  • Outdoor Vehicles
Boats, Bikes, Motorcycles
  • Tax Software
  • Toys
  • Video Games
  • Winter Clothing

As a reminder, if you purchased any electronics at Christmas or in January, check the serial number to see when your warranty expires. Apple offers a 1-year warranty but that is based on when the item was manufactured. A friend's iPad died and after taking it to the Apple store, they were told there was nothing they could do for the warranty since the 1-year warranty after production ended in November, 2011 – before they even purchased it. Lucky for them they were able to return it to the store that they made the purchase. Point of this story, even if it's a great time to buy, check on the manufacturer's warranty. Being out hundreds of dollars on a great buy isn't such a great buy after all.

Grocery Deals

  • Canned Food Items
  • Candy/Chocolate
    It's Valentine's Day month so there are great deals before and on clearance afterwards!
  • Cereal
  • Chicken Breast
  • Hot Breakfast Items
    Cream of Wheat, Grits, Oatmeal
  • Pasta (whole grain)
  • Pepsi/Frito-Lay Products
  • Dental Hygiene Products
    Floss, Toothpaste, Toothbrush
  • Waffles
  • Yogurt

February is a month of celebration for more than just Valentine's Day! With it being National Canned Food Month, National Hot Breakfast Month, Heart Health Month, National Cancer Awareness Month, National Children's Dental Health Month and…should I go on : ) You can find some of these items throughout the year at stockpile prices as well, especially the dental hygiene items.

In-Season Produce

  • Artichokes
  • Avocados
  • Beets
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Garlic
  • Grapefruit
  • Kale
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce
  • Lemons
  • Onions
  • Oranges
  • Pears
  • Peas
  • Radishes
  • Spinach
  • Tangerines

Some states may have more availability and lower prices on the produce that is in season. It’s all dependent on where it’s coming from since shipping adds a cost to anything being shipped from a different state or country.

To extend the produce through the season, freeze it. I did this with a lot of produce. Just this week I used spinach that I froze before it went bad. I put it in the pot with the pasta as it was boiling and it was perfect in our Chicken Alfredo!

Miscellaneous Buys

  • Gym Memberships

Most of the folks who were gung ho on getting fit have fallen off the bandwagon. Since they may be canceling their memberships, the gyms are preparing to recoup the cost. You can find the best prices on gym memberships this month.

Additional Notes

Kroger runs the Dayton Sale Mega Event during February. This is typically $3 off instantly when you purchase 10 participating items along with a Catalina coupon for your next purchase.


Again, these suggestions come from my own personal observations and my very own purchases of goods and services. I’m sure you have a few others. Please leave a comment with your additions!

    I was wondering when the best time to buy a outdoor gas grill is… besides the end of season…
