Tradition says that January is the best time of year to buy linens and towels, with department stores holding "white sales." But there are more good finds right now than just cheap sheets.

If losing weight was a New Year's resolution, diet aids and programs are eager to lure you in with promotions. While there's no quick fix, there are plenty of reputable programs offering good discounts. Like 25% off Weight Watchers (for three months) or 50% off orders at GNC (expires Jan. 31).
