White sale season is here, which means it’s time to stock up on bedding and linens for the entire family.

January is historically known as the month of “white sales,” where shoppers can take advantage of huge savings on bedding, linens and towels. Its origin dates to the 19th century when department stores marked down linens — which at the time were available only in white — to boost post-holiday sales.

These days, retailers are using the first month of the new year to discount a wider selection of comforters, sheets, towels and even furniture. Get 2019 off to a fresh start with new sheets or a top-rated weighted blanket by scoring the big savings. Keep scrolling to get the details on the can’t-miss white sales of the month.
