“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.” -Bo Derek
April showers bring May flowers and some great deals. According to www.smartasset.com May is the optimal month to peruse thrift stores for deals that are better than any other time of the year. Thrift stores offer a whole load of great finds that come from the spring cleaning of closets.
A few household steals can be found in many retail and big box stores if shopping for cookware, refrigerators and vacuums as Memorial Day approaches and items go on sale for June Weddings retailers are hoping to draw shoppers in with great deals. Interestingly, according to www.dealnews.com, party supplies bought in bulk and mattresses are prime purchases as well this time of year. And for the Star Wars fans out there, on May 5th, you can really land the deals as all as “May the 4th be with you” items go on sale on May 5th. Many people are reeling from tax time and feel a need to set up home offices so office supplies are often found reduced, too.
Both sites indicate that May is not the time for deals on items for Mom as Mother’s Day has people shopping with or without deals. Since perennial plants are currently in bloom it’s best to hold off on these purchases until they are off season. It is also suggested that consumers fill up their cars before prices rise for the Memorial Day weekend price hike which typically is between May 9th and May 24th.
Who doesn’t love a deal?
A bargain is something you can't use at a price you can't resist.
