April/May Buying Guide

April 23, 2018

One thing we value at Sommer Investments LLC is the prospect of picking up a great deal. We hope that this buying guide will help you do just that. Here are some things to be on the lookout for over the next month or so. Stick with us and we’ll grab some major savings together!


After Easter:



-Easter and Spring decorations

After the holiday has passed, these items will be on clearance and are a smart buy as you can save them for next year without paying full price.


Earth Day (April 22, 2018):

This is the perfect time to stock up on energy-efficient items. Not only will there be plenty of sales, thanks to Earth Day, but there are often times free give-a-ways as well!  (

-Reusable grocery bags

-Energy-efficient lightbulbs

-Best Buy, Amazon, and Ikea are just some of the stores where you can save big!



-Spring clothes – With spring moving out and summer moving in, now is the perfect time to grab some of those pastels at a discounted cost.

-Rain coats – Since April brings on the rainy season, stores will stock up on rain gear. Discounts can often be found on these items towards the end of the season in order to move this bulk product.


Spring Cleaning:

-Thrift stores – If you have ever participated in “Spring Cleaning” you may know that it is common to take some of your older, used items to a thrift store to help clear some space in your house. Well, because of this de-cluttering movement, April and May are the best times to go shopping for used items! (

-Vacuums – Along with spring cleaning will come an influx of cleaning products. In particular, stores generally have great deals on Vacuum Cleaners during April, second only to what you may find on Black Friday. (


Seasonal Produce:

-Artichokes, Asparagus, Mushrooms

-Green Beans, Lettuce, Beets

-Limes, Oranges, Strawberries

We always encourage taking advantage of seasonal produce. Not only are these things offered at their best price during April, but they also afford the opportunity to try some new recipes!
