Did you know that certain consumer goods go on sale during specific months of the year? If you plan your shopping for anything from home items to clothing and electronics based on these sale patterns, you can save up to 50% on most of what you need.
Here are the best items to buy in March:
If you are in the market for a new pair of sunglasses, March is when you can find most sales and promotions due to the influx of stock stores will receive.
New models are coming out for the summer, so your local golf shop is pushing the old ones out the door. Grab last year’s set cheaply and you’ll forget all about the newer models.
It’s in between vacation seasons, so shops are dropping prices. Grab any extra bags you might need for the summer in March.
When it comes to cruise holidays, the early bid does get the worm. Sales on sailings usually arrive in January to March, when people are booking their spring break and summer cruise.
Winter apparel is usually on clearance at this point in the season, as retailers make way for spring lines. If it’s been a particularly warm winter, you might find really deep discounts on coats, gloves, scarves, etc.
Ski and snowboarding equipment
March is the beginning of discount season for winter sporting gear. You can buy last season’s styles for a fraction of their original cost as stores try to sell out old inventory.
Did you know March is National Frozen Food Month? During the month, sponsoring brands offer promotions to drive consumers to the frozen aisles. While this promotional campaign is based in the US, some these deals may “spill” north of the border.
