Welcome to the roaring 20s!

You’ve successfully made it through the 2010s, and that’s certainly something to celebrate. We’re sure you’re feeling a bit spent (and your wallet is probably a little lighter after all the holiday shopping), which is why we’ve assembled a must-read lineup of what you should (and shouldn’t) be spending your hard-earned money on this month.

January always has some safe bets: holiday decor is always dirt cheap (might as well stock up for next year!), and gym memberships are likely to have a huge drop in price for all those resolution-ers! Since most shops are starting to make room for spring wares, now is a good time to snag a steep discount on a great winter coat.

However, you should stay away from spending money on the hot Black Friday items like laptops and toys. The steepest price drops likely have already happened, and there are more cuts to come in the summer, so wait until you’re done spring cleaning to invest. Below, all the things you should be shopping this month.

New year, new you! For fitness nuts and newbies alike, January is the perfect time to invest in gym memberships, workout gear, and wellness finds. Not sure what you like? ClassPass is a great option.
