Best Bargains In March

February 28th, 2013

calenadarBest Bargains In March

It’s hard to believe that today is the last day of February, isn’t it? We hope you found some good buys these past few months. Today, we have recommendations for the best deals in March.

Frozen Food

The National Frozen and Refrigerated Foods Association has declared March to be Frozen Food Month, and you should be able to find some great deals on fruits, vegetables, and meats. Stock up if you have the room for it.

Perfume and Jewelry

All the perfumes and baubles that didn’t get sold over Christmas and Valentine’s Day will start to show up in the clearance and overstock stores like Burlington Coat Factory, T. J. Maxx, or Sam’s Club. Jewelry tends to have the best discounts in months without holidays. And while we love St. Patty’s Day, it’s not well known for giving jewelry.

Houses

The winter months are some of the most difficult for selling homes. People don’t want to go out in the rain and cold. Landscaping isn’t at it’s prime since many plants are dormant. So now could be a good time since you will have less competition.

Gardening Tools

Gardening season may not be in swing yet for some areas if you still have snow on the ground. But it shouldn’t stop you if you don’t. Now is a good time to buy some pruning shears and all the other equipment you need to get your yard ready for spring planting.

Winter Coats & Apparel

The bargains may be even better then last month because retailers want to clear the way for the Spring clothing lines that are being released in March.

China & Flatware

Wedding season is approaching. And that means that stores will need space for the new designs, and you can get great deals on last year’s looks.

Air Conditioners and Boats

Yes, still on sale. Once temperatures start to rise, the deals will get smaller and smaller.

Luggage

Manufacturers release their new models in the early spring before the busy summer travel season, so now is the time to pick up any new pieces that you have been wanting.

Bicycles

Bicycle manufacturers release their new models in February and March. So to get a great deal on last year’s model, go buy that bicycle in March. The retail stores need to clear out the inventory.

Fresh Food

Fruit and vegetables are always cheapest when they’re in season. So what’s in season right now?  From DailyGreen:

Here is a list of fruits and veggies that are in season for March:

  • Artichokes
  • Asparagus
  • Chicory
  • Chives
  • Dandelion Greens
  • Grapefruit
  • Greens
  • Horseradish
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce (leaf and head)
  • Oranges
  • Parsnips
  • Peas
  • Rhubarb
  • Shallots

The flowers in season are tulips, peonies and day-lilies.

Humidifiers

The heater is still on and the outside isn’t humid yet. So help keep static cling at bay.

Weddings

Since most weddings are not in the cold and rainy season, you can get some great deals on your wedding location. Of course, you will probably want to plan it for next March as last-minute weddings could be expensive.
