Spring Sales of Household Products

March and April tend to be quiet months in terms of big sales, especially for home products.  The December Holiday season is a fading memory, and Memorial Day Sales are still a few calendar pages away.   Does that mean you shouldn’t buy home products in the Spring? For the most part, it is good to wait until summer for larger purchases.

Buy in Spring: Cleaning Products

Yeah, I know…really? Not exciting at all. But the cleaning product companies are setting you up for some good old fashioned Spring cleaning, and they are putting their products on sale to help you out. This is a good time to stock up on eco-friendly cleaning products as well as larger purchases such as vacuums and steam cleaners. Also, it may be time to replace your brooms, mops, dust rags, and other basics. You have to have cleaning products – you might as well get them on sale!

Buy in Spring: Craft Supplies

On a more fun note, March is National Craft Month! Expect to see plenty of sales at your favorite craft suppliers.  This is an excellent time to stock up on paints, photo album supplies, picture frames, and kid’s craft kits. Remember, summer will be here before you know it (cross my fingers). You will be glad then that you took the time now to create an inventory of keep-the-kids-busy goodies.

Buy in Spring: Indoor Fitness Equipment

New Year’s weight loss resolutions are wearing thin, and more and more exercisers are starting to take their training outside as the temperatures creep up. Combined, this means makers of indoor fitness equipment are looking to move some products.  Everything from treadmills to yoga mats will be discounted in spring. If you are looking to add to your home gym or yoga studio, now is a good time to do so.

Buy in Spring: Gardening Equipment and Supplies

In many parts of the country, spring is still a ways away, but in the southern half of the continent, we are sharpening our tools and diagraming our vegetable garden layouts.  Wherever you are, if you are a gardener, you are starting to dream of digging your hands into some rich soil and watching your seeds sprout from the ground. This is the time to buy any gardening equipment you may need for the coming season, from hand tools to hoses to lawn mowers. Pull your noses out of those seed catalogs just long enough to get your necessities.

Buy in Spring: Mattresses

Did you know mattresses have a season where new models are introduced? It was news to me. As it turns out, new models come out in Spring. So why are they a good buy now? If you need the “latest” model, then no, they are not such a good deal. However, if you are willing to accept one of last year’s models (and it’s a mattress – who would know?) you should know that this is the time they are cleared out of inventory (to make room for the new ones).
