It's The Perfect Time To Furnish Your New Home
Memorial Day is a special time of year.
It's a day to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
And, it's known as being the unofficial start of summer.
And, finally, it's known as one of the biggest shopping days of the year, along with Black Friday and Labor Day.
Memorial Day sales tend to feature outdoor items like patio furniture, grills, and summer apparel. But they're also the perfect time to look at mattresses.
If you've recently purchased that home after a promising home inspection with Kanawha Valley Engineering & Home Inspections and need to furnish it, Memorial Day weekend could be the perfect time to do so.
According to NerdWallet, these are some of the items that are most cost-effective to purchase in May - and specifically Memorial Day.
Spring apparel. By May, retailers will discount spring clothing that has already been hanging on racks for a month or two.
Furniture. Three of the biggest blowout shopping days are Black Friday, Labor Day and Memorial Day. Look for furniture and home-decor discounts from big-box stores.
Small kitchen appliances. Use May discounts as an opportunity to buy small kitchen appliances, such as coffee makers and blenders. These products normally are included in Memorial Day sales and are perfect for your new kitchen.
