Outdoor furniture, shoes on sale in March

With spring in the air, "it's a really good time to buy garden supplies and outdoor furniture" in March, says Hillary Mendelsohn, author of "thepurplebook" series of shopping guides and founder of thepurplebook.com.

In February and March, consumers will get discounts on outdoor furniture and gardening equipment, she says. "Come April, people want to sit outside -- and that's when you pay the premium for it."

Mendelsohn's advice is to buy it now and leave it in the box until the weather warms up. You stand to save about 20 percent to 25 percent, she says.

Likewise, if you want to get a price break on summer shoes while the stores still have the sizes that fit, this is your month, Mendelsohn says. "March is the first round of discounts on summer shoes," she says. You can get the largest selection of colors and sizes, plus discounts of 15 percent to 20 percent, she says.
