If you’re planning to sell your home this year, shopping a white sale for household items should be on the very top of the To Do List.  New linens will help your home shine while staging it to sell.

Moving expenses can add up, so why not try to be thrifty during the process. Savvy white sale shopping can save you hundreds of dollars.   And after you sell your home, you can use those same linens in your next home.

Today’s buyers are looking for move in ready homes and the visuals of clean, fluffy towels in the bathroom, tidy kitchen linens, and neutral bedroom furnishings are just the beginning of how New Year white sales can be beneficial.

Towels and sheets used to be the only mainstays for these types of events, but white sales have morphed into the broader category of a home sale. Expect to find bathroom and kitchen accessories on discount as well as rugs and small furnishings.

What to Buy:

Linens for the Kitchen, Bathrooms, and Bedrooms

  • Sheets
  • Comforters/Duvets
  • Towels
  • Bath mats
  • Shower curtains
  • Washable rugs

Decorative Accessories

  • Simple soap dispensers/dishes
  • Classic white platters or vases for displaying on shelves or mantles
  • Good quality room size rugs
  • Tablecloths
  • Couch pillows

When in doubt, buy items in white or light cream colors.  To buyers, these palettes represent a clean and fresh feeling regardless of the accessory type. Neutral colors will also work well later with future homes.

If you’re hesitant to make the investment in new household items, consider their use at the end of the move. It’ll feel amazing to open boxes of hardly used linens to make your next home sparkle.

It’s best to research a variety of stores, both online and walk in because inventory is so diverse. Stores will vary from 20 percent off all the way up to 70 percent, depending on the brand.  There will be more than enough availability and inexpensive options to update any home for a pending sale.

Don’t forget to combine coupons and military discount offers for even more savings.
