What to Buy in April

Ikea UmbrellaDid you know that there is a “best month” to buy everything? Wait until a certain month rolls around, and you can get a much better deal than you will on the same items if you buy them in the wrong month. Here is a quick list of things that you should buy in April. Save money on what your family needs by waiting for the right month to make a purchase!

Vacuum Cleaners
According to the Coupons.com Blog, April is the best time to buy a new vacuum cleaner. Why? It is because this is when last year’s models go on sale. Stores will want to move them out so they will have room to put the new models (that will arrive in a few months). Another reason is because April is a month that many families do Spring Cleaning, and stores will put cleaning products – like vacuum cleaners, on sale.

Spring Clothing
Consumer Reports points out that now is a good time to buy new spring clothing for your family. Yes, it might be cold and snowy where you live at this moment. However, if you wait until the weather warms up you will end up with less of a selection of spring clothing to choose from in the stores. Some stores will have sales on spring clothing right now to help move it out (despite the weather).

Rain Gear
There is an old phrase that says “April showers bring May flowers”. There tends to be a lot of rain in April! Now is the time to pick up some new umbrellas, raincoats, and rain boots for your family. Stores will have sales on rain gear in the hopes of selling as much of it as possible before the weather warms up.

Small Kitchen Appliances
CBS Money Watch notes that small kitchen appliances (such as blenders, juicers, food processors and coffee makers) go on sale in April. This is the best time to replace a small kitchen appliance that is on its last legs or that accompanied your child to college. It is also a good time to pick up wedding gifts or graduation gifts for friends and family whom you will be celebrating with later on this year.

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.
