Memorial Day weekend is the time to buy
If you’ve been saving every hard-earned dollar or your stimulus check waiting for the best sales of the year, the time is ripe to take advantage of steep Memorial Day sales and discounts. “Expect more aggressive discounting on seasonal items like warm weather apparel,” explains Trae Bodge, a smart shopping expert. “This isn’t surprising given that consumers haven’t been shopping as much for spring apparel, so retailers are pricing that merchandise to move. You can find also great deals on mattresses, home appliances, and personal care items right now.” Some of the best deals, though, are on the products you’ll use every day like normally-pricey shoes, vacuums, and skincare.
