In just a few short weeks, we’ll be graced with the sun’s ever elusive warmth again and put the frosty winter season behind us. And we are so ready for it. Which also means that it’ll be time to put winter bedding and apparel in storage and refresh the home for the warmer season. Whether you’re planning to DIY or go on a bargain hunt to track down a few new pieces of furniture for the home, we have a few places in mind to help you get a head start!
The coming of a new season also means a few other things for homeowners aside from the fun decorating and improvement aspects. There are a few things you should check off on your maintenance schedule and these will go a long way in helping you avoid expensive home repairs. For other minor fixes around the house like leakage around the window or damaged roof shingles, you can find quality supplies at Lowe’s to help you out!
Don’t forget to check out their weekly ad and rebates page for additional savings and offers. Plus, Lowe’s typically offer a “Spring Black Friday” sale near the end of March or beginning of April so keep your eyes peeled for this early Black Friday sale! You can get updates on all new sales, coupons, and offers from Lowe’s by subscribing to our Lowe’s page for email alerts.
Wayfair is THE go-to if you’re preparing for a day of browsing from bed on sale pieces for the home. They typically feature up to 70% off sitewide on everything from bedding and sofas to lighting and accent decor. We swear you’ll find at least one item to add to cart on here! Also, other stores a part of the Wayfair family are: All Modern, Joss & Main, Birch Lane, and Dwell Studio. All are furniture stores but each has their own distinct style.
If you’re feeling up to a bargain hunt for small accent pieces to polish up the look and feel of your living room or bedroom, these off-price retailers are a must. We recommend TJ Maxx and Marshalls for quality accent furniture but all of the listed retailers are great for those looking to upgrade bedding and bath items. You’ll find brands from top designers like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Nautica and much more for up to 80% off retail prices.
Sears or Sears Outlet is a solid choice if you’re in need of appliance upgrades. This department retailer hosts up to 40% off major appliances from trusted brands (i.e. Whirlpool, Kenmore, etc) nearly every week plus, you’ll get free delivery if your order exceeds $399. For mattress upgrades, Sears also has a free haul-away service, just remember to mark that box at checkout!
Most important for your wallet, save money and drop by Sears coupons page every time you shop for new and ongoing storewide savings.

Best of all, Target does not shy away from clearance markdowns on these items either. Follow this smart Target shopping guide and see how you can spot those nifty clearance areas throughout your local Target!

If these items are too pricey for you, it doesn’t hurt to drop by for some ideas and inspiration!
Last but not least, how could we forget this spunky Scandinavian retailer? Have yourself a family day (or date) and settle in at your nearest IKEA for a breakfast or lunch before adventuring into the maze that is IKEA. IKEA launch new collections every season and that means past inventory could be up for grabs at up to 50% off in their as-is furniture clearance section (yes, it exists!). So be sure to drop by that area on your next visit!
