Shopping? The 5 best and worst things to buy in March

The gorgeous weather and tax refund checks are just two things some of us are looking forward to this month.

But don't spend your whole check in one place because there are some good deals to be found in March, but also many things you'll want to wait on, including lingerie.

You'd think there would be lots of discounts since Valentine's Day just ended, but that's not the case.

Instead, wait until June when Victoria's Secret has its semi-annual sale.

Other retailers tend to mark down their prices as well including Frederick's of Hollywood and Macy's.

Luggage on the other hand is a good thing to buy this month to get ready for the traveling season.

I found some good deals at Kmart, including an American Trunk & case bag for about 40 bucks. That's more than half off.

The regular cost is $100.

It's also a good time to buy winter clothes, since retailers are focusing on spring.

That also means wait on the spring apparel because typically it's sold at full price this month.

Finally, wait on buying Kindle Fire apps.

According to, many of the apps will be free starting in May when Amazon changes its pricing structure.

So no need to pay full price for anything this month.
