The season has changed and you might wonder what to buy in spring to save money. Here are a few things to consider for spring savings.
What to Buy in Spring – To Get The Best Savings
Save with End of Season Clearance
Be on the lookout for the following clearance items: winter clothing, Easter baking and Spring Holiday Decor (St. Patricks’s Day, Hanukah and Easter). Buying clothing and decor items after the season this year, will save you 50% (even up to 90%) for next year. Be sure to check for coupons to stack with the food and baking clearance too.
Save on Updating Wardrobe
While clearance shopping is great for stocking up on clothing for next winter, you may want to find ways to update your spring wardrobe for less too. Buying inexpensive jewelry from amazon or scarves and other fab accessories from my fave Cents of Style, is a budget friendly way to update the classic pieces you already have in the closet. Or check out online consignment sites like ThredUp and Schoola to find “new to you” spring clothing (these sites offer new user Free credits too- so click the links to find out more). And of course the retail stores will all have sales running, especially before Easter to deck you out. Try stacking coupons and promotions at a store like Kohl’s to save more. I have a few more tips to save on clothes purchases, read those here.
Save on Seasonal Produce
With spring in full bloom, we will start to see prices come down on seasonal produce items. You can save more on fruit and vegetables by checking your grocery rebate apps, they often offer cutback savings on produce items. Wondering what is in season when? I have a Seasonal Produce Guide to print here. Also, remember that you can freeze most produce. In season produce will be the best price, so buy up and freeze for later. See all my tips for freezing produce here.
Save on Spring Planting and Lawn Care
Obviously ,spring makes us think of planting gardens and cutting the lawn. Now is the time to find savings on seeds, plants, and grass maintenance (including lawn mowers). Be sure to check out my tips on how to save on lawn care. To save even more, sign up for the Home Depot Garden Club newsletter, they will send legitimate $5 or $10 coupons to you via email. But watch out for Facebook scam coupons from Lowe’s and Home Depot (no they are not going to give you $50 Free).
