December's deals aren't on everything

Face it, if you love deals, December is one of the best months of the year.

At this point, "there's not a lot that's not on sale," says Daniel Butler, vice president of communities integration for the National Retail Federation. But with some items -- such as cashmere, gift cards and bed linens -- you can often save even more if you can wait until January.

The nagging question for December bargain-questers: Can you get just a little bit more for your money at those after-holiday and January sales? Or, are you sacrificing selection in pursuit of a slightly better deal?

Want to get the most for your money this month? Here are 12 items that might be sporting even better price tags this year.
