What To Buy In May

Posted: 2:59 PM, May 3, 2022

It’s time for another shopping guide with our friend, John Matarese of DontWasteYourMoney.com. This month, we’re looking beyond the expected Memorial Day Sales and finding out what else is worth your money in May. 

  • Spring Apparel 

You know that spring fashion that’s been out since January? Now’s the time to scoop it up! We’re talking beachwear, tennis shorts, Hawaiian shirts… stock up now!  

  • Mothers Day 

Mother’s Day is May 10th and the last thing you want to do is miss out on sending Mom some beautiful flowers. Well, make sure you order them early because the earlier the better to get the best deals. And here’s a bonus tip: some flower companies will let you send the flowers on Friday, which is a cheaper day for deliveries. 

  • Outdoor Heaven 

We all know Memorial Day signifies the beginning of grilling season. So dust off your grill and all your tools and make that backyard sparkle. Now’s the time to grab patio furniture and outdoor couches as they go on deep discount for the holiday weekend.  

  • Other Amazing May Deals 

May is a month jam-packed with deals, so keep your eyes peeled for these items that are going to be tagged with great prices: furniture for the bedroom, bedding, small appliances …. basically anything to spruce up the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. 

  • HOLD OFF! 

Okay, now you know what to buy in May – but here’s what NOT to buy: tablets and laptops. Unless you absolutely need one, hold off until late June… right in time for back-to-school deals.
