Does it seem that no matter how much you buy, you always need something else?  As long as you know when to shop, your wallet should stay full.  So what should you buy and what should you avoid this month?
 
Chocolate
Chocolate is a great place to start.  Some stores are still trying to get rid of Valentine's Day chocolate and that means great deals for you.  Ghirardelli has chocolate on sale for half off, it's as low as $2.00!  
 
Frozen food
Did you know March is National Frozen Food month?  Yes, it's a thing and it means deals galore. We found sales at most Valley grocery stores this week, in fact Bashas has a whole section of frozen food coupons.
 
Luggage
Now is a great time to buy luggage and that includes backpacks and duffels! Tomtop has backpacks on sale for less than $8.00.  And Luggage Pros has sets on sale for more than half off.  
 
As for what to hold off on?  
 
Cars
 
According to GOBankingRates, now is not the best time to buy cars.  With income tax returns giving people a windfall, many are using the money on cars meaning the competition is stiff.  
 
Spring attire
Stay out of the dressing room for a little while, or at least don't grab the newest styles.  According to Deal News it's best to wait about three months into any season before you buy clothes for that season.
