10 Things Moms Can Buy Cheaper In May

Shopping May, shopping discounts, May sales items, bulk shopping spring, spring sales
May bargains are plentiful!

From barbecues to beaches, in May, moms put the final touches on buying everything we need for the summer season. The one big help this month is Memorial Day, the one holiday in May that ushers in amazing deals.

In fact, Deal News reports that “Memorial Day weekend tends to boast some of the most exceptional sales since January. You’ll see the ubiquitous sale ads, but where these promotions truly become money-saving is in the plethora of stacking coupons we find on those already-discounted goods.”

In addition to the holiday sales, here is what you should be stocking up on this month:

    Don't go traditional when it comes to Mother's Day gifts this year, as jewelry prices usually soar through the roof during May. Instead, think of what specifically your mom likes. Is she a sports buff, animal lover, or a collector? If you go for the items that are unique to her, you will avoid those traditional (often cheesy) gifts and save a few bucks in the process!

    Spring cleaning equals spring furniture for many. If your bed is less than comfy and cozy, it's an ideal time to go mattress shopping, since stores are clearing out old inventory to make room for new summer products.
