HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!!
Upcoming 2018 Memorial Day Sales
Although not the official first day of summer, which would be June 21st on the summer solstice, Memorial Day weekend starts the unofficial beginning of summer for many of us. We look forward to this holiday weekend not only for the expectation of warm weather after our long winter, but for the expected number of sales this long weekend brings!
Memorial Day sales are a great way to save money on some amazing deals, if you know where to look. One thing to keep in mind is this is not a time to buy summer items. Below we highlight just a few of the deals going on this Memorial Day weekend, May 25th thru 28th.

We are are starting to see hints of Memorial Day sales popping up. From travel companies to clothing to housewares; start looking now for sales and deals, this way you don’t miss out on the items you desire most. Obviously, as the weekend approaches we will see more and more sales for all types of items. Many companies will even run specials within their sales, on certain days and at certain times, so keep your eyes peeled for those specifics on your favorite brands.

Many clothing brands run promotions on Spring clothing for this weekend only. These sales can run anywhere from 20% to 90%, with left over winter clearance being an even better buy.
