I can't believe that it is already MAY! Partly because it snowed yesterday and partly because this year has seemed to fly by so fast! My baby is going to be ONE at the end of the month! Where has the time gone?
Baby Cheapskate posted these awesome bargain predictions for this month
Here are a few of the bargains and deals I expect to see this May:
Yard sales are in full swing! They’ll start winding down in May in warmer areas. You folks from cooler climes will enjoy them well into June. More about how to score big at yard sales here.
Mothers’ Day sales: Mother’s Day is early this year, so online shopping is already winding down. Still, look for coupon codes and baby/mom-themed freebies during week one, especially at retailers with quick shipping.
Father’s Day deals abound this month: look to save up to 40% on photo gifts like photo mugs beginning the day after Mother’s Day.
Memorial Day Sales! The Children’s Place, Old Navy, Kohl’s and other retailers cut prices.
Swimwear and sandal deals! Look for about 25% off on kids’ swimwear and sandals during week two. Last year saw sales at Old Navy, Crazy8 and Children’s Place. Expect up to 50% off on sandals and swimwear after Memorial Day.
Specific Sales to Look For:
- Watch for a Stride Rite Friends and Family sale around Memorial Day .
- We should see 30% to 50% off at Pediped.com during their Make a Wish Foundation benefit. Pediped’s been playing with the date on this one. Look for it as early as mid month or as late as mid June.
- Gymboree usually issues a 30% off Friends and Family coupon mid-month. Look for one at sister store Crazy8.com, too.
Note: BC Predicts information is based on previous years’ sales. Stores and brands don’t always repeat their sales, but they very often do.
