Best Things To Buy In April

April often brings showers of slashed prices on last year’s product models. Check out our list of great values available in April.

Cookware & Kitchen Accessories

Cookware and kitchen accessories get high marks on gift registries for college grads, newlyweds and with young adults looking to outfit a kitchen before the fall school year begins. Home goods stores roll out great deals in these categories, making it easy for you to grab them while they’re in plentiful supply.


Electronics prices historically drop dramatically during April. Many tech companies mark the end of their fiscal year in March. Consider last year’s models of TVs and digital cameras that typically carry competitively low prices this month.


Run to your nearest shoe store for the best buys of the year in athletic shoes and sneakers. (Pun intended.) As new sneaker lines are introduced, last season’s styles sport markdowns as great as 80%.


Manufacturers of vacuum cleaners often roll out the latest and greatest new models in early summer. Prior year models begin selling for less in April, just in time for spring cleaning. Check out refurbished vacuums for an even lower price.


In between spring holidays and summer vacations, many people choose to stay home instead of heading out of town. With fewer folks traveling, airlines and hotels often discount their prices. Bonus: plan a trip now and you’ll avoid crowds of tourists.
