Melting snowdrifts may have you dreaming of spring and sitting on the patio but wait on redecorating those outdoor spaces. Other shoppers are thinking like you making demand and prices rise. Retailers will offer the best deals in another month or two, so sit tight and wait for warmer weather.

We will see lots of luggage going on sale later this spring. Unless you have an immediate road trip or other emergency travel, skip the luggage purchase. Retailers will offer deals closer to summer when families and friends are hitting the road and packing for an adventure. If you need luggage now, check out Walmart clearance deals.
