The Best Things to Buy in May

May is here, and I couldn’t be happier about it! It’s always been a favorite month of mine, and not just because it means Mother’s Day is coming up. 😉 This month I’m looking forward to my my hubby’s birthday coming up on the 23rd, with Memorial Day just around the corner on the 28th! But birthdays and holidays aren’t the only things worth celebrating this month—there will be plenty of deals and discounts worth celebrating too! Today I’ll be sharing 10 different deals to watch out for this month that are sure to make May even sweeter.

Curious about what deals you can score in June, July, or even October? I’ve got you covered all year! Check in around the beginning of each month in 2018, because I’ll be sharing a post like just this one, letting you know what deals to look out for that month!

May Is The Best Month To Buy…

The Best Things to Buy in May

1. Athletic Apparel

Keep your eyes peeled for great deals on workout clothes and athletic shoes this month! Retailers are pushing their athletic offerings to get people excited about the warmer, more exercise-friendly weather that’s just around the corner.

2. Air Conditioners

If you’ve been meaning to replace your air conditioner, this month is the time to do it! May might not necessarily be the cheapest time to buy an air conditioner, but it will certainly be much cheaper to buy it now! Prices on air conditioners are sure to go up along with the temperatures as the summer progresses. (You’ll probably be lucky to even find a store with A/C units in stock at that point!)

3. Summer Clothes

If you’re looking to stock up on summer clothes, be sure to take advantage of the upcoming Memorial Day sales! You’ll start seeing deals rolling out about two weeks before the Memorial Day holiday. But the very best deals won’t come out until just a couple of days before, so make sure to keep checking for updates on your favorite clothing sites! Hello JCrew Factory! 🙂

4. Mattresses

Another item that gets pushed during Memorial Day sales is mattresses! Since mattresses are such a big-ticket item, you can find some really impressive discounts during these sales. If you’ve been meaning to replace your old, lumpy mattress, this month would be a great time to do so!

5. Refrigerators

Okay, this is the last shout-out to Memorial Day sales, I swear. 😉 Appliances have been an increasingly popular item to discount as part of Memorial Day sales. You can find discounts on all kinds of appliances, but fridges tend to see particularly good markdowns! Invest in a new fridge before your old one has a chance to fail in the summer heat.

6. Office Furniture

This month, you’re also likely to find great deals and offers on office furniture! If your home office could use a makeover, now would be a great time to get started. Last year, major retailers like Walmart and Quill.com offered steep discounts on swivel chairs, shelving units, and small desks, so keep your eyes peeled for similar offers this year!

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season, so why not celebrate with a party or barbecue? You’ll find discounts and deals on everything you need to throw the perfect Memorial Day weekend bash in your backyard.

8. Star Wars Products

The fourth of May has been gaining traction as a holiday dedicated to all things Star Wars! (“May the fourth be with you!”) Last year both Amazon and Target participated by offering impressive discounts on Star Wars products. If you have a Star Wars fan in your house, the next couple of days would be a great time to snag a birthday or Christmas present for them!

9. Swimwear

May is the best month to get a swimsuit to wear this summer, both in terms of price and choice. Make sure to get your swimwear this month, rather than in June or July when prices will be sky-high! My favorite place to look for good quality bathing suits is Lands End.

10. Mother’s Day Gifts

The best deals on jewelry for Mom have already come and gone, but you can still get a great deal on other gifts! In May, you can score great deals on personalized photo gifts at sites like Shutterfly and Snapfish. You can also score a great deal on a subscription for Mom’s favorite magazine—a gift that will keep on giving all year long!
