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.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
