What to Buy in March
Posted on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015 at 7:00 am
Every month, there are annual sales that savvy shoppers wait for. The best time to buy something is when it goes on sale. Miss the sale and you have to wait for another year for the same sale to pop up again. Here is a quick look at the things you should buy in March.
Things to Buy in March
Did you know that March is Frozen Food Month? Grocery stores and frozen food manufacturers celebrate it by offering plenty of coupons for frozen foods. You will find those coupons online and in the Sunday inserts in newspapers.
Now is a great time to find out how much room you have in your freezer. Start (or replenish) your stockpile of the frozen food products that your family enjoys. Use coupons and combine them with discounts that come from having the store’s loyalty card.
There isn’t much call for travel in March. The month doesn’t include Christmas or Thanksgiving, two of the holidays that result in the most travel plans. It’s also a little early for most people to be thinking about vacation travel.
Luggage manufacturers will put luggage on sale in March in the hopes that it will make people suddenly decide to book a trip somewhere. Now is a good time to replace worn out or broken luggage even if you don’t currently have any travel plans. Your plans might change before the holidays return, and the price of luggage will rise by then.
It may be too cold and snowy to consider going for a round of golf right now. Even so, the new spring line of golf clubs (and accessories) will be coming out soon. That means the current ones need to move out. Pro shops will put last year’s golf clubs on sale in March.
Not a golfer? Consider picking up some new clubs for your spouse. Or, store them away and give them as a Father’s Day gift in June. This sale could also benefit parents who have a high schooler who has joined the school’s golf team.
Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest holidays for chocolate. The other big one is Christmas. There aren’t any holidays in March that influence people to buy lots of chocolate. Chocolate companies will have sales in an effort to boost their sales in between holidays.
You can get great deals on the leftover Valentine’s Day chocolates. There will also be sales on “regular” chocolate. You are going to have to wait a while before the Easter chocolates go on sale, though.
