February is a month that can't make up its mind. Officially, it's still winter, but with Christmas long gone and and dreary January finally behind us, who can help but look ahead to spring? Fortunately, February shoppers can take advantage of this in-between month to find good deals on winter clearance items and warm weather necessities that haven't yet been marked up for the season.

1. Big Screen TVs and Home Theater Equipment

The Super Bowl has come and gone, and now that it's after the big game, you can find some excellent HDTV deals and low prices on quality big screens. Home theater deals also tend to ramp up through the month of February, as retailers are looking to make room for newer 2013 models.

2. Leftover Party Foods

Another good post-Super Bowl deal? Party food. Hit the grocery store and stock upon your favorites, because who doesn't love a 2-for-1 deal on Doritos?

3. Winter Vacation Packages

Want to plan a ski trip before winter ends? Now is a good time to head to a ski resort, since many are pushing specials so they can finish the season on a high note. A word of caution, though, don't buy luggage unless you must — March Spring Break deals will be much better.

4. Winter Apparel and Goods

February brings President's Day sales, and some of the lowest prices of the year on winter apparel, furrniture, and household goods. Big department stores and smaller retailers will all be offering deep discouts on quality items — so if you've had your eye on that fancy cashmere coat, now is the time to buy it.

5. Dental Supplies

Did you know that February is National Children's Dental Month? Be on the lookout for savings and promotions so you can stock up staples like toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash. It's also a good time to remind your kids about the importance of brushing their teeth.

6. Perfume, Chocolate, and Other Valentine's Day Favorites

After February 14, take advantage of post-Valentine's Day deals to buy quality chocolates, fine jewelry, and your favorite fragrances. Retailers will be ready to move the surplus that didn't sell, and more than willing to offer discounts of 50 to 75% to do it.

If you need to purchase Valentine's Day gifts before the 14th (which most of us do), check out the Cash Back Sales available at Fat Wallet to increase your holiday savings.

7. Warm Weather Necessities

Think items like air conditioners, gas grills, and bicycles this month, before prices go up along with the temperature. It may not feel like summer is on its way, but in many stores, bathing suits are already on display. Scary as it may be, in about a month, the summer shopping season will be in full swing.
