Memorial Day, Summer, & End of School Year Sales

Memorial Day is approaching, meaning that summer is right around the corner.  Memorial Day sales are abundant with outdoor items at discounted prices, including patio sets and patio furniture, grills and grilling items, pool and water toys for the kids and family, beach and travel items for your summer vacation, as well as sales and specials on food items related to summer and grilling. 

Home improvement stores such as Home Depot and Lowes will especially have good deals on gardening tools, equipment, and plants.  Large purchases such as lawn mowers, especially ride-on lawn mowers, as well as other large gardening tools, are a good one to consider with Memorial Day approaching.  Patio furniture, gazebos, pergolas, an outdoor project such as paving, mulching, replanting, gardening, are all good ideas with the summer sales approaching.  Outdoor grills or outdoor kitchen projects are another thing to start considering with Memorial Day sales on the rise.

Large retailers such as Target, Walmart, and discount wholesalers like BJ's, Sams, or Costco, just to name a few, are all having Memorial Day sales and discounts on these patio, lawn and garden, and grilling items.  Local retailers will also be having specials and sales on these outdoor and summer items as well, so shop around!  If you have been in the market for a new patio set or grill, this is certainly the time to start shopping around and comparing prices.

Grocery stores will be having Memorial Day sales as well, on the same kind of summer and outdoor items including patio and garden items and grills (if they carry such), but also on charcoal, hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, condiments, and other outdoor party and summer picnic items.  If you are a couponer, now is the time of year to stock up on these food items as well - simply use your coupons when the items are already on sale at your local grocery store for the deepest discount.

Pool, beach, and travel items are a great purchase during Memorial Day sales at your favorite clothing and department stores.  Kohls, Macys, JCP, and Old Navy are just a few retailers having sales and specials on summer items including bathing suits, summer clothes, and luggage.  Bathing suits, pools, pool toys, beach gear, towels, sunscreen, and more will all be on sale at many retailers when the school year ends and summer is fresh on everyone's minds.  If you are in need of a new set of luggage, now is a great time to shop around.

Still looking for a graduation gift?  Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, and other bookstores are offering deals and sales on books, Nooks, and other reading material which can make a great gift.  

Now is the time to be looking out for Father's Day gifts for your favorite dad or grandfather, with Father's Day approaching on June 17, 2012.  Dad's always love grills and grilling items, or perhaps even a new lawn mower or some other lawn equipment is what is on your father's wish list.

Stock up on those summer beach and pool toys and get your luggage ready, school is letting out, Memorial Day is almost here, and summer is about to start!
