7 Things To Buy In April
April is famously tax month, and you may have to part ways with more money than you do in other months. That makes it even more important to look for great deals and save money where you can. In turn, making this a great month to buy certain items. Today we’ll discuss the 7 things to buy in April.
Car Service & Maintenance Items
April is “National Car Care Month”, so many automotive shops and supply stores will offer discounts on services and inventory. Depending on where you live, the seasons have changed and you’re probably ready to switch car maintenance from winter to spring. If this is the case, keep an eye out for advertising from local automotive shops. You will surely find someone offering a “spring maintenance” discount.
Spring is a great time to buy clothes, and April is an especially good month because many stores brand sales specifically for the occasion. Stores such as PacSun, Gap, and Loft usually offer sales with up to 70% off spring attire. Additionally, while you may not be looking for winter clothes, there are stores like Walmart that mark their remaining winter clothes down to basically nothing. It’s not uncommon to find long sleeve shirts on clearance racks for as low as $1.00 each. You can also check our site for coupon codes for certain stores to save even more money.
Early Mother’s Day Gifts
Even though Mother’s Day isn’t until May 12, stores begin offering discounts on “mom” gifts as early as the second week of April. Regardless if you’re looking for technology, clothing, jewelry, or even handbags, there’s a sale on these items somewhere. In the past, Nordstrom Rack has offered discounts up to 79% off during Mother’s Day sales.
If your mother is into technology, check out TechRabbit. They featured up to 97% off some used and new electronics last year. Also, check out Coach for great deals on handbags and Macy’s for great jewelry sales.
Easter Clearance Items
Easter falls on April 12 this year which means this month will be a great time to pick up clearance Easter items. During the end of the second week into the third week, you’ll find lots of discounts on decor and candy. Drugstores and large retailers are great places to check as they will be clearing this inventory to make way for new displays. This is also a great time to stock up on plush bunnies and baskets for next Easter, as these items won’t go bad.
Items from Secondhand Shops
April is a big month for spring cleaning for many people, which makes this a great time to check local consignment shops and thrift stores. Remember, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. If you’ve been looking for the perfect armoire, lamp, or entryway table this may be a great time to find one.
April is a great month to purchase snow equipment such as snowblowers. While these machines are costly in the winter, spring is a great time to buy one because stores will need to clear inventory for the next season. The same goes for items such as snowplows, tire chains, and salt spreaders.
Home Improvement Items
Spring is the time of year when many people decide to tackle some do-it-yourself projects. There’s something about warmer weather that makes people want to do house repairs. One great place to find discounts on home improvement items in April is Home Depot during their annual “Spring Black Friday” sale.
While you will find most of these discounts in the stores, be sure to check our Amazon Discount Hunter tool, as it’s a great place to find online sales for the same items. If you plan to buy furniture check out the article “How to Save Money with IKEA Discount Coupons - Smart Shopping”.
