Most stuff goes on sale when you don't actually need it . . . like winter coats when it's 90 degrees out. But here are four things on sale right now that you might actually be able to USE this month . . .
1. Sunblock. Make sure the stuff you've got hasn't expired, and stock up for summer if you need to. It usually lasts about three years, and then it doesn't work as well.
2. Wireless speakers. They're cheaper than normal right now, including the outdoor kind. So look into it if you're planning any parties this summer.
3. Weed eaters. Which is good if you're fixing up your yard. You probably don't need a heavy-duty one. But the low AND high-end models should be on sale right now.
4. Decking materials: Speaking of that backyard barbecue, this month is a good time to replace or add a deck. You may have to fork over some cash for labor, but you can save on materials. Don’t forget to figure in the cost of railing, stairs, and support structure.
