What to Buy in March

Savvy shoppers quickly learn that there is a best time of the year to purchase just about anything. If you wait until the right month, you could end up saving quite a bit on the things you want to buy! Here is a list of things that you should consider buying in March, (instead of waiting until later in the year when it will be more expensive).

Small Consumer Electronics
Consumer Reports says that March is a good time to buy a digital camera, an MP3 player, or DVD and Blu-ray players. The demand for these items has dropped since December, when people were buying them for Christmas gifts.

Gardening Tools
March weather is generally too cold to be a good time to plant a garden. That is exactly why now is the best time to buy garden tools! The demand will be low, and so will the price. Get yourself a new pair of gardening gloves, and replace any garden tools that have become worn out.

Luggage
Not a lot of people plan their vacation to take place in March. Part of the reason must have to do with the fickle weather the month brings. You never know if it will be nice out or snowy! March is in between the two biggest travel seasons of the year: Summer vacation, and the Christmas holiday season. You can find sets of luggage in March for the lowest price of the year.

Frozen Food
Did you know that March is National Frozen Food Month? It is time to stock up your freezer! Be on the lookout for the extra coupons, point of sale coupons, and special grocery store sales on frozen food. Plan well, and you can avoid paying full price for the same kinds of frozen foods in April.

China and Flatware
People tend to buy a new set of dishes around Christmas time (if they are looking for holiday patterns). Another common time to buy it is for a wedding present. For whatever reason, March doesn’t seem to be a big month for weddings. If you have been planning on replacing your china and flatware, or are looking for a really nice set, March is the month to make that purchase.

Perfume
The biggest time of year for perfume sales is Valentine’s Day. It also sells well at Christmas and Mother’s Day. Valentine’s Day is over, and it will be months before those other two holidays roll back around. March is a good time to buy the perfume that you didn’t get for Valentine’s Day.

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.
