What’s best to buy in April?

Have you ever wondered what are the best months to buy certain items?  Wonder what’s on clearance by month?   Be CAREFUL  on purchases in April!  Retailers know that it is Tax Refund time and they are pretty limited on what discounts and deals they will offer this month.

I have compiled a list of  “when is it best to buy” certain items.  This list is compiled from years of making the most of my money by purchasing strategically.  One of my big strategies is to buy when the best price presents itself and my What’s Best To Buy This Month series will give you the guideline.

During the year, when I make note of things we need to consider replacing in the house I will wait for the seasonal sale. While I am waiting, it gives me an opportunity to stash a little money away to plan for that purchase.


So, What is best to buy in April?  

The seasonal items for APRIL look like this:

Right now be snatching up the after Easter Clearance items.  Use the pastels for weddings, baby showers etc.  Think ahead to your special occasions coming up!  Re-Stock any items you will need for next Easter now! Grass, plastic eggs, bunny themed trinket toys, etc.

Look for Vinegar, food dyes, ham, eggs, & some baking supplies: sugar, spices, baking mixes, & chocolate chips.

Get coupons for these items also!  Watch for coupons to match to clearance items:  And search the Free Coupon Database by category, product or brand!

Earth Day is on April 22,  watch for organic foods & Energy Saver products.

Final days to file taxes or request an extension to file is coming — Tax Day is April 18!

Remember:::: Be CAREFUL in April!  Retailers know that it is Tax Refund time and they are pretty limited on offering discounts and deals this month.

Used cars are a big focus this month, so if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to the newer, higher priced models now is the time to enjoy even great savings as used car lots clear their inventory for the warmer weather buying season ahead. For the same reason, also look for huge sales on auto parts and accessories.

This is also the time when warm-weather clothes start to go on-sale.

Graduation season is coming up as well, so keep your sights set on sales of laptops, digital cameras, cookware sets and dorm room kitchen essentials.

April is also the time for great deals on vacuum cleaners as inventory clearances make way for brand new models coming out in June.

Clearance: after Easter sales are the time to stock up on decorating, baskets, etc for the next year. Also food coloring & sprinkles. Easter candy can be bought also to use for baking (Hershey’s kisses, etc). Final clearance on winter clothing and shoes — get the 90% off sales!

Seasonal Produce: artichokes, asparagus, beets, broccoli, cabbages, cauliflower, grapefruit, avocados, mushrooms, onions, peas, & rhubarb.

How soon after Easter would you suggest going shopping for the shoes and clothing clearance?


Jennifer Freeman April 2, 2012 at

Great question! It is going to be dependent on what store you prefer. Most large chain stores start their sales right after Easter. And like Target the sales will be different from region to region. I would call your favorite stores and ask or when you are in ask a supervising employee – that is where I get lots of information. They usually know what sales are coming around the corner.

Hope this helps! Jennifer
