    January is a great month to buy fitness products and TV sets. You'll find discounts on a variety of home exercise equipment, including treadmills and elliptical exercisers. If you need a new digital scale, you should also be able to find one on sale.

    The weeks leading up to the Super Bowl are a great time to find deep discounts on television sets. Stores want to clear out the 2018 models to make room for the 2019 ones.

    The electronics editors at Consumer Reports say an HD or high-definition set with a 40 to 42 inch screen is probably the right choice for most families.

    Consider a 46- or 50-inch set for rooms where you’ll be sitting 8 to 10 feet or so from the screen, they say.

    What about top-of-the-line Ultra High Definition technology, also known as 4K? Consumer Reports says the benefits of a 4K are more apparent in larger screen sizes -- say, 65 inches and above -- or when you’d like to sit closer to the TV.
