Just about every shop is touting a Memorial Day Sale this weekend but they're not all created equal. There are three areas of the home that see deeper discounts than others over this holiday weekend. Check out the best kinds of sales to hit after the jump...

  • Furniture Sales Perhaps furniture stores know that as the weather warms up it's going to be harder to lure shoppers into their stores. That could explain why we see a lot of Memorial Day themed sales at furniture stores. This is a good time to pick up that sofa you've had your eye on. Many of the sofas in our recent roundup — Small Space Seating: Sofas & Loveseats Under 60 Inches Wide — are currently on sale.

  • Mattress Sales There's some debate about how long you should keep a mattress but if you've been on yours since the Clinton presidency, it's definitely time. Mattresses often get discounted heavily for Memorial Day weekend. For a little research on which mattress is best for you, check out a recap of Maxwell's A Year in Bed
