By , dealnews contributor

The Chicago area has finally gotten its first substantial snowfall this year. And while fresh snow is lovely to look at, we find that it also inspires folks to hunker down and cozy up on the home front. So to that end, we've rounded up five deals that are sure to keep spirits high and warm in your home this season. Keep in mind that while the faint of heart may feel exhausted from holiday shopping, January is a time for overstock sales and fantastic deals. And if you can't find what you're looking for in our roundup, check out our the best daily deals in our home and garden section.

  1. Home Depot Overstock Event
    Discount: Up to 70% off plus an extra $10 off orders of $100 or more via coupon code "SAVETEN"
    Shipping: Starting at $7 s&h or free shipping on orders over $49

    Is It Worth It?: A sale this big demands an extra-extra large shopping bag, as Home Depot unloads everything from holiday trees to laminate floors. For this deal, we're calling out the Hampton Bay Williamsburg 6-Light Chandelier for $39.99 because it adds a lot of charm to any room for a little price tag. Featuring a polished-brass finish with white candle sleeves, this light uses six 60-watt candelabra bulbs. For more overstock home goods, click here.
