A Monthly Guide for When to Buy Just About Anything
Some people are planners and have their lives and their homes in Woodbury MN well organized. Others are more likely to fly by the seat of their pants, making last minute plans and purchases as things happen. If one of your new year’s goals is to try to be more organized and maybe save some extra money, here is a list of the best times to buy certain items to help you with both goals.
January is the time when lots of stores hold their white sales, so now is the time to stock up on new linens, towels, bedding, and similar items. You may also be able to find holiday decorations on sale, so pick up that new string of Christmas lights you know you’ll need next December. Thanks to the Super Bowl, you may also be able to find some good deals on snack foods, whether you need them for the game or save them for throughout the year.
February is a good time to find discounted gift sets that you can buy for Valentine’s or for upcoming birthdays. This is also the time to buy new winter clothing, as most stores are starting to clear out their stock for spring’s arrival.
March is when lots of people start doing the spring cleaning of their homes in Woodbury MN, so you may be able to find good deals on cleaning supplies. This is also the time of year when new versions of electronics are released. Avoid the new releases and pick up a deal on the previous versions.
April is often a good time to find discounts on dishes, cookware, and household items, as people start buying more of them for upcoming wedding gifts. Don’t forget to stock up on discounted Easter decorations after the holiday.
May is when people start to hold their garage sales, so if you visit them now, instead of later in the summer, you’ll find better items, rather than the remains from their second or third garage sale. With the approach of Memorial Day, it’s also a good time to stock up on sunscreen, bug spray, and picnic foods.
June is when Father’s Day takes place. After the big day, you often find good prices on tool sets, aftershave gift sets, and greeting cards. Buy now for upcoming birthdays, holidays, or to have the cards ready to go next year.
July is when it seems like everything is on sale whether it’s for Fourth of July celebrations or summer clothing as retailers make way for back-to-school clothing.
August is when the end-of-summer sales really kick off and you can find deals on grills, pool toys, patio furniture, and gardening supplies.
September brings Labor Day sales that cover a variety of categories and you can usually find some discounts on school supplies, as well.
October is a good time to purchase home appliances, because the current year’s models are frequently discounted to make way for the next year’s models.
November, particularly the first week, is the time to pick up Halloween costumes and decorations for next year. Of course, Black Friday and Cyber Monday also offer up great deals on household items and electronics.
December may have a few discounts on leftover Thanksgiving food items, and in the week after Christmas, go ahead and stock up on wrapping paper, decorations, cards, and similar items.
