January White Sales: How to Find What You Need

January 16th, 2014

January is the season for white sales, and that means it’s time to freshen up the beddings and towels! Retailers all over the country give huge discounts on their bed and bath supplies during this time, allowing you to have better sheets, comforters, and towels without spending too much. However, the challenge with January white sales lays in the quality of the items you buy. How many times have I stood in the bedding aisle of Target or a department store wondering what thread count I should go with or if spending $10 more on an item would make a huge difference?

Here are some tips you can follow to get the most value out of your money when purchasing bed and bath items during the white sale season!

Better Beddings

Sheets, linens, comforters, pillows, pillow cases―you name it, they’re on sale! However, the question most of us ask is: how do we know that what we’re buying is quality?

Thread Count

Thread count is important because it’s an indicator of quality. For the best possible thread count, look for beddings with a thread count between 180 to 200 or 250―these linens are more comfortable and last longer. Remember that a higher thread count also means a higher price, so don’t be surprised.

Fabric and Weave

Fabric is also an important factor when buying beddings during January white sales. Cotton and cotton/polyester blends are the best fabrics for comfort and quality. The way your beddings are woven is also significant, and the best way to make your decision is to feel the fabric, so don’t be shy about asking the sales staff for some assistance!

Design

There used to be a time when the only design available during January white sales is white―white sheets, white linens, white everything. Now, retailers are offering various designs and colors for you to choose from, so take this opportunity to match your beddings with the rest of your décor!

Quality Towels

Towels are also on sale this month, so here are the things to look out for:

Fabric

Towel fabrics are moving with the times, so expect a handful of fabric choices when you’re out shopping. Traditional cotton is still the best way to go, but if you want a lighter yet absorbent towel to bring on trips, a microfiber towel is a good choice. A combination of cotton and natural fibers also makes for comfortable and durable bath towels.

Size

January white sales is also a great opportunity to change out your kids’ bath towels. There are options for smaller bath towels, or you can check out the bundle of towels with various sizes.

Design

Switching out your towels is an easy way to perk up your bathroom décor, so take this opportunity to purchase towels with designs you can easily match with your bathroom style and color!
