The weather outside might be frightful, but winter apparel sales are so delightful.

November and December mark the most popular shopping months of the year, as consumers flock to malls and stores to get gifts and goodies galore. Seasoned shoppers know, though, that winter apparel is deeply discounted after the new year.

In fact, one of the best times of the year to buy a winter coat is January, when stores are trying to push out their winter inventory before spring apparel comes in.

But, as most northerners know, the cold weather typically sticks around past February, even if that groundhog doesn’t see his shadow. So if you’ve been gunning for a new winter jacket or boots to get you through the rest of the season, now is the time to buy.

Here are a few great winter apparel sales currently going on, and keep your eye out for more sales to hit in the coming weeks. Bundle up without burning through your bank account!
