What to Buy in April
Posted on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013 at 7:00 am
Did 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!
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.
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).
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.
