Some people buy what they want or need when they want or need it, but other people are more strategic and know that different things go on sale during different times of the year. If you fall into this second category, we're here to let you in on some of the best things to buy this month. April brings flowers, showers and these retail deals:
Most of us are ready to throw off our heavy bedding this time of year, but if you have the room to store it, now's a great time to purchase end-of-season bedding. It will be fun to get it out in the fall and have a whole new bed.
Looking to freshen up for spring? The twice-annual Spa Week is April 13-19 and spas everywhere are offering deals.
Where to look: call your local spa to inquire or visit SpaWeek.com to find deals in your area
TVs, laptop computers and tablets
New models are usually announced in the spring so prices dip for older models making April a good time to snag a deal.
Indoor fitness equipment
The weather's nicer now so it makes sense that more people will head outdoors for exercise - which is exactly why indoor fitness equipment goes on sale, to tempt you indoors with low prices.
Jewelers want your tax refund money and are putting lots of merch on sale this month to tempt you to spend it.
It seems counter-intuitive that in-season items would be on sale during the season you need them, but the fashion world is always a season ahead (as you know if you try to buy a sweater in...February) so you'll see plenty of sales on spring clothes this month.
