Best Things to Buy in May

First on the bargain list is, spring clothing. Now that summer is around the corner, you can expect discounts at 20-75% on spring apparel; from stores like Old Navy, Eddie Bauer and many more.For savings you can take lying down, look for Memorial Day deals on mattresses. Deal News says not to settle for less than a 50% discounts, and to look for stackable coupons to increase your savings even more.

Google recently announced they were getting into the cellphone business with a $20 per month cell plan. The new competition may not make prices lower in May, but it could mean deals and perks coming up in the months ahead.

And for the bad deals – here's what you should avoid, Deal news says to skip the laptop deals this month, you're going to find better deals in late June as back to school sales ramp up.

May is also a mediocre month for TV's and a bad time to buy apple TV. Rumor has it, apple will be announcing a new TV streaming device next month. If this is true, the current generation is going to get a lot cheaper.

Well there you have it, now you know what to look out for and what items you should just avoid. Happy shopping!

This is an account worth glancing at if you’re about to make a purchase in the next day or two at Amazon – you may find deals on those items or items similar to what you want to buy.
