When it comes to pick-me-ups, January tends to require a huge arsenal: Schedule an upcoming trip to somewhere warm. Get as much fresh air and daylight as possible. Read books and watch shows and films that are sure to bring a smile. Spend time with our dearests, and commiserate. Load up on vitamin C and zinc. Maybe get a pedicure or facial. Watch lots of Golden Globes fashion coverage. Light a calming candle, and organize all the things. And, last but not least, I find that a little sale shopping can be quite soothing.

I am still trying to simplify things this year and clear the clutter, but there are certain staples that are always a good buy. *Affiliate links

One wardrobe winner that can be clutch with winter layering is a good bodysuit. Amazon has Mangopop bodysuits in just about every style you could use, all on a stellar sale—up to 56 percent off. Whether you like a turtleneck, henley, scoop neck, square neck, off-the-shoulder topper or V-neck, Amazon to the rescue.

I am a supplements girl, and they really add up. Amazon has all sorts of nutrition and wellness finds at a major discount, slashing prices up to 53 percent. For starters, this drink powder is one of the yummiest, most convenient ways to get magnesium—especially on the go—and 37 percent off as I type.

Are you resolving to eat more salads this year? This Bentgo All-in-One Salad Container is genius and discounted 20 percent. Take advantage of multiple compartments for all your fixings, and ensure you won't end up with a soggy mess or a boring greens-only salad come lunchtime.

Similarly, a fast, healthy breakfast can really start your day on the right foot. My favorite Orgain protein powder is 21 percent off today. I'll be stocking up for sure!

If workouts are a top priority, resistance bands can be a bestie. They're so small, but they add great resistance to basic exercises. This pretty set is a steal today, discounted 36 percent. I love that they are labeled.

If you're resolving to use less plastic, this Rubbermaid set of glass food storage containers is so handy. I have a similar set, and I've noticed berries and crunchy veggies like celery stay fresh longer in these containers. Plus, you can easily see what you have. Today the five-pack is discounted 28 percent.

Finally, any time of year, eye cream is a must. I use several different ones for different reasons. Ole Henriksen Banana Bright is a favorite for brightening and 21 percent off today!

Happy shopping!
