Spring has sprung! Take a look at what to buy in April, and what purchases you should avoid in April, in order to spend less around the house!
This article was written as part of my weekly guest segment on Indianapolis’ B105.7 Radio with morning show host Sean Copeland. You can hear the audio segment here.
What to Buy in April
- If the crafting bug hasn’t hit you yet after a year+ in a pandemic (see what I’ve been creating), aside from great sales on Cricut machines, now is the time to invest in the crafting industry as both Cricut and Joann Fabrics have gone public.
- Earth Day is April 22nd, so you can expect to see sales on smart light bulbs and other ways to be good to the earth.
National Park Week starts April 17th and on that day you can get in to any national park with no fees and for the first time in history that includes Indiana Dunes which recently became a national park! Related: Family Travel | Indiana Dunes.
- Administrative Professionals Week is always the last week of April, look for restaurant freebies and retail offers to show appreciation.
As far as in grocery stores, produce you can find on special in April includes asparagus, avocados, broccoli and citrus.
But not everything is at its best price in April. Hold off on mattresses, tools and appliances as they tend to go on sale around Memorial Day weekend.
And hopefully since the last of the snow has melted, you may get the itch to start your gardening, but actually May is when you’ll start seeing better deals on gardening tools, blowers and trimmers.
