May is an in-between month when it comes to shopping. It is too early for graduation parties, summer vacations, and most weddings. It is too late for sales on gardening tools and gym memberships. Here are some of the best things to buy in May.
It is recommended that you replace your mattress after 5 to 10 years. Consider replacing it every 5 to 7 years if you don’t sleep well.
May is an excellent month to throw out your old mattress and get a new one. Manufacturers are clearing out their existing stock of mattresses to make room for the new models. You can get a great deal if you buy a mattress in May.
Linens and Bedding
Sales on sheets, pillowcases, and duvets start in May. It is a great time to replace the worn out ones you are currently using with brand new ones. Look for coupons from stores that have a bedding section. You may find those coupons in your mailbox, in your newspaper, or on the store’s website.
Memorial Day Sales
Memorial Day is often a three-day weekend. This inspires stores to have sales on things that they need to clear out. Memorial Day sales often include discounts on vacuums, TVs, and mattresses.
You can also find Memorial Day sales on raincoats and boots, umbrellas, and spring jackets. These items are often on clearance in May because the weather changes and there may be less need for rain gear.
