What’s On Sale This Month
As you might expect, all winter items should start to go on sale.
Spring clothing is starting to get marked down because summer apparel is moving in, and stores need the space. You may find some markdowns as much as 40%.
Cookware sales on things like pots and pans starts in April and often runs through May.
Some things seem to always be on sale like consumer electronics. Look for what you specifically need, and then keep your eyes peeled for any special promotions. Some stores have deals on big-screen HDTVs near or below Black Friday prices.
The Kindle Fire HD is at an all time low price. Usually companies will lower the price when they’re ready to announce a new model, and they want to reduce current inventory.
Canon is doing that with it’s EOS Rebel line. They announced the T5i and are offering bundles on their prior model, the T4i. So if you’re wanting a new digital camera for your summer holiday, look into the T4i.
Jewelry is on sale again this month, but chances are, the prices will bump back up in May because of Mother’s Day. So if you’re buying jewelry for Mom, look into buying this month.
