Now that February is upon us, what are the best things to buy during the shortest month of the year?   While Valentine's Day steals most of the attention this month, there are great deals to be had that go beyond Cupid's big day.

Tax season is coming.  I know, I know, you don't even want to think about it (if you owe money) but February is a good time to find deals on tax software. also says this is a great time to buy that big screen TV you've had your eye on.  Perfect for this Sunday's Super Bowl, right?

Winter apparel and accessories are definitely priced to move this month.  Retailers want that space for spring merchandise.  Stock up now for next year, although the calendar says we still have plenty of winter left.

President's Day is one to circle on your calendar for savings this month, as you'll find good deals on bedding, tools, furniture and apparel.

Look for deals this month on beauty products too.  Maybe a favorite perfume or cologne for your Valentine.

Happy shopping!
