NEW YORK (WABC) -- May brings Mother's Day this weekend and Memorial Day sales.
It's also the best month of the calendar year to buy something that everyone of us uses at least once a day.
What to buy:
*Pearls: We saw them discounted about 75%.
*Perfume: Big retailers are stocking up on them for Mother's Day.
*Spring Apparel: Ben Glaser of DealNews.com says you can snag spring apparel on the clearance rack.
*Small kitchen appliances: You can get blenders and toasters discounted about 60 percent, but wait for the Memorial Day sales.
*Mattresses: It's the best time of the year to buy one. Memorial Day sales should discount them by a minimum of 50%.
*All things Star Wars: The magic day is May 4th. You'll find deep discounts on this day only. Have fun and "May the 4th be with you."
What not to buy:
*Summer Apparel: It's not discounted now. Wait 2 months.
*Laptops: Hold off on buying them. Believe it or not, back to school sales will sneak in next month before school's even out.
