BROOKLYN - Thursday marked the beginning of post-holiday sales.

Experts say that anyone looking to purchase a new vehicle should wait until Dec. 31, when dealers and automakers are desperate to make their year-end goals.

The best time to purchase new furniture and mattresses is New Year's Day. Stores will get their new lines in stock come February and will want to try to clear out their showroom beforehand.

Lastly, if you're looking for a new TV, experts say to wait until Super Bowl weekend. The big game comes right as new TV models are announced at The Consumer Electronics show.
