There are annual sales that savvy shoppers should take advantage of in April.  Shop at the right time and you can save a lot of money!Every month, there are annual sales that savvy shoppers can take advantage of. It helps if you know what to look for. Planning ahead, and waiting to buy something during its annual sale, is a great way to save money. Here’s a quick look at some of the things that you should buy in April.

What to Buy in April

Tax Day Freebies
April 15, is “Tax Day”. It is the day that all Americans must mail in their completed income tax forms. It is also the day that many cafes, restaurants, fast food places, and bars give away free stuff. Take a look at the website or Facebook page of your favorite place to eat or drink. If they are doing a freebie, there should be some details about it listed there.

The idea seems to be to make what can be a stressful time in people’s lives a little bit brighter. Of course, once a person comes in for a freebie, he or she might be tempted to make some purchases as well. Keep that in mind so you don’t end up spending more than you intended.

Spring Clothing
Depending on where you live, it might feel as though spring has just started. Even so, you will find discounts on the new spring line of clothing. You can expect to find sales that are somewhere between 15% and 30% off. (Bigger discounts will start to pop up in May). Get some spring clothing now, for a nice price, and still have time to wear it before summer comes around.

Gym Memberships
A whole lot of people rush to buy a gym membership in early January. This is directly related to the New Year’s resolutions that focus on weight loss. By April, some of those people have decided to drop their gym membership.

The weather has gotten warmer since January, and this causes many people to want to go outside and do things. People who are serious about exercise often decide to get out of the gym and do their exercising outdoors. Gyms are now in need of more members and may be offering a nice discount for new members to take advantage of.

Thrift Store Clothing
There is something unexpected that happens as a result of spring cleaning. People go through their closets and get rid of clothing that no longer fits, that is no longer in the latest style, and that they intended to wear (but then didn’t). All those clothes get donated to thrift stores.

That makes April a good month to frequent the local thrift stores. You could find some brand new items that still have their store tags on them. Everything you find at a thrift store is at a low price. This can help people who love to shop for clothing stay within their budget.

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.
