Every month, there are certain things that go on sale. April has a lot to offer, including some interesting freebies. It helps if you know where to look and when to shop. Here are some of the things to buy (or to get for free) in April.
This year, Tax Day is on April 15, 2020. That is the due date for filing your 2019 federal income tax return. Most people do not enjoy working on their taxes, and some worry about how much money they will have to pay. To make the day a little brighter, fast food places, restaurants, coffee shops, and more may offer a tax day freebie. Check your favorite store’s website to find out what the freebie will be.
The best time to buy holiday items is right after the holiday is over. Easter Sunday will be on April 12, 2020. You may start seeing baskets, plastic eggs, Easter grass, chocolate bunnies, and Easter decorations at a lower price shortly before Easter Day. The prices will drop more after Easter. Stock up on nonperishable Easter decorations for next year – and save money doing it.
Visit a National Park for free! National Park Week 2020 starts on April 18 and ends on April 26. All entry fees are waived on April 18. There will also be special days during the week to highlight the different ways everyone can enjoy national parks.
April is a good month to buy clothing. The least expensive way to do it is to visit thrift stores. You may find some really nice clothing there that someone else decided to get rid of while Spring Cleaning. Retail stores often start their Spring clothing sales in April. Before you shop, check their sales paper for coupons. Visit their website to find coupon codes for online shopping.
