What to Buy in March
Posted on Friday, March 1st, 2013 at 7:00 am
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
