The New Year brings lots of change and growth, it also brings big savings in clothing, electronics and more!

Fatwallet.com offers some January offers big savings for consumers looking to find items to help them start, and keep their new year's resolutions going strong.

"January is great time to find savings on items that people will need to start the year off on a good note," stated Brent Shelton, online shopping expert for FatWallet.com. "Many items from new bed and bath textiles, to health and wellness products see heavy discounting to help people save money out of the gate."

Top 5 tips for finding the biggest savings in January:?

  • Fitness Deals: Resolutions for better fitness collide with the best time of year to save money on fitness equipment, work-out gear and fitness-wear/sports apparel. January shoppers can find savings of 25 to 50 percent off these items at stores like Sears, Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods. It’s also a good month to stock up on health supplements, vitamins and dietary foods as sales on these items are abundant the entire month.
  • Winter Apparel and Gear: Warm weather has slowed retail sales for cold weather apparel. January shoppers will see an extra boost in discounting of winter coats, boots, hats, gloves and under garments. Winter Sports and Outdoors deals will offer shoppers up to 60 percent off from top stores with top name-brands like Under Armour, North Face and Timberland throughout January.
  • Tax Software Deals: Self tax filers increased by more than 20 percent in January. The majority of tax software retailers like H&R Block and Turbotax offer some of their best discounts of the year for early filers, including up to 50 percent off on both desktop and online tax software deals for both personal and small business tax, plus, FatWallet members can receive up to 10 percent in cash back savings.
  • TV Deals: Following a long holiday of TV bargains and the announcement of new 2016 TV models and features at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, the second half of January offers the best selection of top end HDTV deals leading up to the Super Bowl. Consumers can expect an average savings to exceed $200 on 40-inch and higher 4k TV and last year’s 50-60-inch 1080p TV models.
  • White Sales: Unlike holiday deals on lower quality linens, traditional January White Sales bring big discounts up to 50% off quality sheets, towels, window treatments and other textile items for the home from big box stores that offer additional savings from cash back.
