Happy April everyone, and happy Easter too! Spring is finally here, and what better way to celebrate than by snagging some great deals? (I may be biased though, because I believe that shopping is a great way to celebrate anything.) ;-) April tends to be an action-packed month, what with spring cleaning, finishing up your taxes, cleaning up the yard, and all the other tasks you on your springtime “to-do” list. But the good news is that this month, you can find great deals on stuff that will help you do everything you need to do, and more! :-)
Curious about what deals you can score in May, June, or even October? I’ve got you covered all year! Check in around the beginning of each month in 2018, because I’ll be sharing a post like just this one, letting you know what deals to look out for that month!
April Is The Best Month To Buy…
1. Cookware Sets
The month of April leads up to both wedding season and graduation season. And one of the things that both grads and newlyweds want is a great set of cookware. Luckily for them, many departments stores will be offering great sales and discounts on cookware sets this month!
2. Home Improvement Supplies
We call it “spring cleaning,” but it’s usually more like “spring cleaning and organizing and fixing things around the house.” If you’ll be doing any of those things around the house this month, make sure to take advantage of the Spring Black Friday sales and discounts at Home Depot!
3. Auto Parts & Services
April is National Car Care Month! Winter can be really hard on cars, and yours surely deserves a little TLC now that the weather has improved! Take advantage of discounts on tune-ups, new tires, auto parts, and more.
4. Secondhand Goods
You probably won’t find a lot of special deals on secondhand clothes this month, but what you will find is a huge selection! People are spring cleaning their closets this month, so you’re likely to see a lot of recently donated items at your local thrift shops. Spend an afternoon combing the racks, because you never know what you might find!
5. Spring Clothing
Retailers will be clearing out spring styles this month in order to make room for incoming summer styles. That means you can find great discounts and markdowns on spring-y clothing for the whole family, just in time for warmer weather!
6. Tax-Day Freebies
Keep an eye out for freebies at your favorite stores on Tax Day (which is April 17th, so don’t forget!) For instance, Staples has offered free paper shredding on Tax Day in recent years. And a surprising amount of cafes and restaurants offer free food on Tax Day, so make sure to take advantage of that as well! Find more details at Retail Me Not.
7. Earth Day Discounts
Earth Day is on April 22nd, and many businesses will celebrate by offering special earth-friendly deals and discounts. Some deals you might find include outdoor gear, hiking boots, eco-friendly cleaning supplies, and more! Click here for more information about this year’s Earth Day offers.
8. National Park Trips
National Park Week runs from April 21-29, and there are plenty of ways to celebrate! You can enjoy free admission to any national park on April 21st. Visit the National Park Service website to search for special park events happening near you.
April is a great time to snag a deal on jewelry, because jewelry stores are gearing up for Mother’s Day in May. Take advantage of all the sales and discounts on jewelry this month, and then you won’t be scrambling for a gift next month! :-)
