I cannot believe that May is here. April was such a fast month for me, and I don’t think that May is going to be any slower! With the boys getting out school later this month and planning for summer vacation, there are so many things to look forward to.
May is a busy month for so many people with the official start of summer, graduations, weddings and more. With that being said, there are several things that you should be buying this month! Here are my top 6 favorite things to buy in the month of May.
Mattresses– Did you know that May is “National Sleep Better Month”? With that being said, this is a great month to buy sleep-related items including mattresses. As an example, Groupon has this Sealy Conform Essentials 11.5″ Gel Memory-Foam Plush Mattress Set priced from just $399.99! (reg. $3000) I noticed other great mattress deals as well so now is definitely the time time to buy if you need a new mattress! You may be surprised at what great deals that you can find!
Swimwear– Since summer will be here before you know it, many stores are offering great sales on swimwear for the entire family. Many children’s stores like the Children’s Place offer free shipping so you can score a great deal for the kiddos without ever having to leave your home. Also, don’t forget good ol’ Amazon. I scored this 2 piece cutie for myself for $29.99! I love how modest yet trendy and comfy it is!
Bicycles– May is also “National Bicycle Month” so that means we can snag great deals on bikes! I noticed that Walmart has kids bikes priced from $48! What a great deal! You can also check places like the Goodwill and Salvation Army as people will be getting rid of older bikes to purchase newer ones. I have seen bikes that look like brand new at these places, and you are saving yourself a lot of money in the long run.
Non-Traditional Flower Gifts for Mother’s Day– Did you know that Mother’s Day can actually be one of the most expensive times of the year to buy flowers? In fact, many florists, hike their prices up! You can still give mom a great gift, but be sure to think outside of the box here as well. There are many great deals to take advantage of on non-traditional Mother’s Day gifts. Places like Edible Arrangements, Shari’s Berries and Canvas on Demand would be great alternatives and they are offering some great deals right now! In fact, at the time of this post, Groupon has an offer for a 5×7 canvas from Canvas on Demand for only $4.99, an 8×10 for $7.99, 11×14 for $9.99 or a 12 x12 for $12.99! I find that these canvas prints make the best gifts and they offer memories to last a lifetime!
Home Items– May is a great month to think about purchasing items like robotic vacuums or small kitchen appliances. Also, be on the lookout for deals on items like cookware, glassware and dishes as many stores will be gearing up for wedding season.
Party Supplies– May is the beginning of the summer months and with that brings graduations, summer parties, and barbecues. Many party supply stores like Oriental Trading and Party City will offer discounts on their products. I also find that Target will offer gift card and cartwheel promotions to save on these supplies so be on the lookout! And, don’t forget to think outside of the box at craft supply stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby! I often find the cutest party supply items there and they almost always offer a coupon.
