It’s officially March, and there’s a lot to look forward to this month — even if you’re not counting down the days until Daylight Saving Time like I am! St. Patrick’s Day is also coming up, and there’s plenty of March Madness action on the horizon for you basketball fans.
But for us dedicated bargain hunters, the matter of primary importance is the plethora of sales and discounts that will be hitting store shelves this month! Start the new month on a frugal foot by checking out March’s best deals below.
9 Of The Best Sales And Deals In March
March is a slow month for travel, so many retailers offer luggage at a discount to try and increase sales. If you’re planning any road trips or vacations for later in the year, why not take advantage of this month’s low prices and buy any luggage you may need in advance?
2. Frozen Foods
March is National Frozen Food Month! Many products from major frozen food brands (i.e. Eggo, Dole, Green Giant, Tyson, etc.) will likely be on sale this month. And keep an eye on store ads and circulars as well — you might find coupons for frozen foods inside!
3. Golf Clubs
If you’re a golfer in need of some new clubs, get thee to your local pro shop! New club models start arriving this month leading up to the summer golf season. Many shops will discount last year’s models to make room for the new gear, so it’s a great time to buy!
4. Running Shoes
The weather might still be frigid, but warmer weather is on its way! If you’re a runner, keep an eye out for great deals on running shoes this month. Outdoor retailers often have springtime sales in March, and running shoes are almost always included.
Sandals are another type of shoe that tends to go on sale in March. Keep an eye out for discounts, and get yourself ready for a sandal-wearing summer!
6. Craft Supplies
March isn’t just National Frozen Food Month — it’s also National Craft Month! Look out for sales, events, and classes at your local craft store this month, and at national craft chains like Michaels and JOANN.
7. Cleaning Supplies
You can save money on everything you need for your spring cleaning projects this month. Cleaning solutions and supplies don’t go on sale very often, so this is the time to stock up on your favorite store-bought items!
Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are the two most popular holidays to give jewelry as a gift. Since March falls somewhere in between the two, many jewelers and jewelry brands offer discounts this month to drum up additional business.
Why not get ahead and save some money by getting Mom’s Mother’s Day present this month? (Just make sure you don’t forget where you put it!)
9. Gardening Tools
It’s almost time to get out into the garden for spring planting, and I couldn’t be more excited! Many stores offer discounts on gardening equipment this month, so it’s a great opportunity to stock up on supplies. You may be able to find discounts of up to 50% off, which will make a big difference if you’re shopping for large or expensive equipment!
