7 On Your Side's Nina Pineda has the latest details.

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.
