Comments Off on What to buy in March
With much of us with snow still on our lawns, it’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner. I’m determined to look on the bright side of one of the coldest, snowiest winters in recent history.
With the beginning of spring coming up at the end of the month, March is the time of year when retailers do their best to get rid of winter items left over from the holidays and make room for brand new merchandise. March represents one of the best shopping months of the year. The first days of March bring huge savings on winter gear, clothing, televisions, luggage, and much more. Right now, let’s take a look at a few of the best things to buy in March:

Although the holiday shopping season is a good time to cash in on flat screen tv deals, the best month to buy a LED, LCD, Plasma flat screen television is March. Newer models begin arriving at retail locations and merchants must clear out older inventory.
Now is the Time to Buy Winter Clothes
Major retailers are making room for spring apparel so now is the best time to buy winter clothes, such as coats, jeans, sweaters and scarves. Most of the merchandise has already been moved to the clearance section but it’s early enough in the season to still have a large selection.
Find Winter Sporting Equipment Heavily Discounted
Skis, snowboards and hockey sticks are going to be heavily discounted this month as merchants make way for spring sports. Coats, jackets, gloves, scarves, etc. will be on sale as well.
Purchase Spring Clothing Now
The best time to buy clothing is right before a major holiday. Prices are still low but there’s also a good selection available. For spring wardrobes, that means making your purchases before Memorial Day. You can still get about 40 to 50 percent off and you don’t have to worry about limited inventory or out-of-season styles.
Get Wedding Gifts in March
Summertime is the peak wedding season, which means a traditional wedding gift will be on sale right now. China and flatware are especially good buys right now, after the Christmas demand has lessened but before it picks up again as brides add them to their registries. You can find great prices on expensive flatware during March.
Enjoy Great Deals on Expensive Perfumes
Similar to the flatware rule, March is downtime between Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, the three holidays where perfume sales are up. This is the best time to get a great deal on expensive perfume.
Load up on Luggage Before Summer
Since most people are done with their winter excursions but it isn’t quite time to plan a summer vacation, March falls within an awkward period when people generally aren’t traveling. Now is the time to snatch up great bargains on luggage because retailers are clearing out last year’s inventory for this year’s fashions. March is a great time to pick up a luggage set for a fraction of the price.
Buy Gardening Supplies Early
it’s not quite the season yet for gardening, so early March is the best time to buy gardening supplies. To make room for new inventory current items will be discounted for quick turnover.
Get a Deal on a New Home
The winter months often mean cold, dreary days and harsh weather, which makes the idea of shopping for and moving into a new home much less appealing during this time. The “curb appeal” of homes on the market are reduced because spring/summer foliage is still dormant. The combination of historically low mortgage rates and reduced demand often makes March the perfect time to go house hunting.
Find Frozen Food Deals Plentiful
March is National Frozen Food Month and many grocery stores will have great deals on all frozen foods. Use this to stock up your freezer with all the coupons and promotional sales that are available.
Fruits & Veggies Still in Season
You can also stock up on certain fresh fruits and vegetables in March. Fruits and veggies in season include: artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, brussels sprouts, butternut squash, celery, chicory, chives, grapefruit, greens, horseradish, kiwi, leeks, lettuce, mangoes, oranges, parsnips, pineapple, peas, potatoes, rhubarb, and shallots.
