(WXYZ) — Believe it or not, this weekend is the beginning of February!

For many, shopping is the furthest thing from your mind, but February does offer some unique savings on certain items that are even better than what was seen over the holidays.

Interested in fragrance? You're looking at deep discounts at Perfumania. Its semi annual sale offering up to 70 percent off while offers 30 percent off site-wide.

And if you've been planning to tackle a new TV or sound bar – now is the time to buy!

Your number 2 buy are TVs, marked down to coincide with the Super Bowl. For the greatest discounts, check out Best Buy, Walmart and Target.

But act quick. In a week, those deals could go away, though Valentine's Day savings will be here to stay.

It's the month of love, people are looking for love, it's a fresh new year, people are looking for a fresh start.

RetailMeNot says dating services are your number three buy. Look for to offer 20 percent off if you're a first-time user, and e-harmony to offer 35 percent off.

If you're looking for a gift for that new partner, RetailMeNot says you'll strike gold on your number four February buy: personalized items from photo mugs to picture books!

Shutterfly has a great, RetailMeNot exclusive for 28 percent off site-wide if you use the code: RMN28.

And another really great buy for the month of February is outerwear. For example, at target, they already have their coats for 30 to 70 percent off.

That's your your number five best buy.

This one says it was $79.99 now on clearance for $20. Target has an inventory that's hard to beat.

But you'll also find up to 70 percent off outerwear at Walmart, JC Penny's and Dick's Sporting Goods.

Now that you know what to buy, here's what should you avoid: RetailMeNot says spring break demand makes February a poor time to book travel or buy luggage.

You really want to wait until March, so that's when you're going to see the deepest discounts on things like airfare, hotel and suitcases.

So put a hold on the trip planning, and instead focus in on tackling those fabulous February deals.
