7 Things to Buy in May

Sharing is caring!

Here's a great list of 7 things to buy in May that will yield the best savings and deep discounts.

This month’s edition of the “things to buy” series is full of focus on spring time savings and deals. May really does bring flowers and other budding deals. After you read the list of things to buy in May, take a peek at the article 7 Things to Buy in April, since some of those deals will still be valid this month.

60″ HDTV

Way to be specific, right? The 60″ HDTVs in your electronic stores will have the best deals of any televisions available. If you’re looking to surprise Dad (or Mom) with a new TV for the upcoming holidays, early May is the best time to buy.

Lawn Mowers

Speaking of Dads, this is also a great time to upgrade or invest in a new lawn mower. This would be a perfect time to find a deal on a gas model that is self-propelled.

Digital Cameras

Now is the time to start your price comparison of point and shoot cameras that you may have been eyeing up since after Christmas. With the upcoming vacation season, these particular cameras will be on one of the deepest discounts you’ll see until black friday.

Camping Gear

If you’re planning a big camping trip or adventure with the family this spring and summer, tents and other outdoor gear will be at a good deal online. Here’s the trick: you’ll need to try out outdoor gear before you buy to make sure that it will fit your whole family or be accommodating to the particular plans you have in store for your vacation. See if adventure stores or department stores in your area will price match online deals.

Patio Furniture

Finally! Deals on patio furniture will be in full swing this month, with extreme discounts and coupons released just in time for Memorial Day. Pay attention to circulars and online deals for special offers on full sets of outdoor furniture.


Those May flowers are in bloom at your local hardware stores and even large department and grocery stores. Due to the wacky weather throughout the country the past few months, retailers now have an overstock of plants that need to be sold before the hot summer months. Sales like 3 plants for 20.00 will be rampant by mid-May. Also keep a look out for sales on seed packets, as the planting season is in full swing.

Vacuum Cleaners

The old stereotype is still true: May, and Mother’s Day, is the best time to find a deal on a vacuum. While you don’t have to grab this for the mom in your life, you can buy a compact vacuum at a great price for any graduates in your life. This is a great gift to give them if they’re moving out of the dorms and into their own place.

    I am excited to find a great deal on patio furniture. I want to update our back patio and I am looking forward to summer evenings outside sipping a cool beverage.

    We are shopping around for a new gas grill. We think the end of May near the holiday weekend will be good for that.
