Spring is officially here, and it’s time to get outside and enjoy warmer weather. It’s also time to save big on select items that are cheaper around the first month of spring. These are the five best things to buy in April.
Plants and Gardening Accessories
As the weather warms up and spring showers roll in, vegetables, flowers and garden accessories start to go on sale. You might not get the same type of savings you would toward the end of the season, but you’ll save enough to make a difference in your pocketbook. Research the best time to plant for your specific region before you go shopping, but you can always care for your plants indoors while you wait for the perfect time to plant. If you’re looking for indoor plants, Plants.com has you covered. Shop hundreds of types of plants and garden accessories.
Tires and Car Accessories
April is a great time to save on tires and services for your car. Winter is officially over, and it’s time to get your car ready for spring showers and warmer days. If your tires are past their usable life, consider having them replaced at a store like Sam’s Club, where you can get big discounts on a full set of tires. You can expect to save more than $100 on a set of four tires at the big box store. I covered buying tires in 8 Items You Should Always Buy at Sam’s Club.
