Refrigerator 3There are certain products that go on sale during a particular month. Pay attention to when that happens, and you will save yourself quite a bit of money. The trick is to know when to buy the items that you want (or need to replace). Here is a quick list of things to buy in May.

Party Supplies
May is a great month for buying party supplies. At the end of May, and the beginning of June, there will be graduation parties to plan. May is the start of the party season. Coming up soon is Mother’s Day, followed by Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Father’s Day. How many members of your family have a birthday during the summer? Is there someone you know who needs a wedding or baby shower soon? Pick up the party supplies now before the stores run out of what you need.

Patio Furniture
The weather is starting to get nice, and people will be considering spending time on their patios again. Stores tend to have some of last year’s models and designs still in stock. They need to move them out in order to make room for the new ones. May is the time to shop for patio furniture because you will find a good discount on the slightly older styles.

Mattresses and Box Springs
Those of you who recall that the “white sales” on bedding, sheets, and towels happens in January. So, why wait until May to buy a new mattress and/or box spring? The answer is simple. New mattresses come out in the summer. This means retailers need to move out the stock that is still in the store from last summer. Go now, and you can get a great deal on what you need.

Refrigerators
Why are refrigerators on sale in May? One reason has to do with Spring Cleaning. As people power clean, reorganize, and take a close look at their kitchens, many decide that their current refrigerator needs to be replaced.

This just so happens to match up nicely with when the new models of refrigerators are about to hit the stores. Once again, stores need to move out last year’s stock to make room for the new ones. Buy a refrigerator in May, and choose from last year’s models. You can get a nice discount! Another way to save on a refrigerator is if your relative has decided to replace theirs. See if they would be willing pass the old one over to you. It can’t hurt to ask what their plans are for their old refrigerator.

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.
