The Christmas rush might have you feeling all shopped out, but according to, there are a few items you can save big on this time of year.

After Christmas is the best time to shop for:

1. Brand-name HDTVs

When major manufacturers debut their 2014 lineup at the Consumer Electronics show in January, retailers are sure to cut prices on 2013 models, making it the perfect time for a flat-screen update.

2. Fitness gear

While that looming New Year's resolution may be telling you to stock up on exercise equipment and yoga pants, you'll get a better deal in January when major fitness retailers host sales of up to 60 percent off.

3. Home furniture

Many manufacturers release their new furniture collections in February, forcing top retailers like Home Depot and Pottery Barn to clear their stock. This means major discounts for you.

4. Consumer electronics

With new models debuting in January, it's best to wait until after the holidays to catch the best deals on tablets, digital cameras and laptops.

5. Clothing and accessories

Tons of stores will host their annual after-Christmas sales starting on Dec. 26, so wait until then to add to your winter wardrobe.

6. Christmas decorations

By Dec. 25, you've probably had enough of twinkling lights and big red bows, but the week after Christmas is the perfect time to stock up on highly discounted festive decor for next year.
