Frozen Foods to Take You Into Spring! 

March 1 marked the beginning of National Frozen Food Month. That’s a win for busy families looking to save time on shopping for groceries! Because of this occasion, well-known brands are offering hefty discounts and coupons. Make room in your freezer so you can stock up on fruits, veggies, protein, & more! It’s a smart way to prepare for the unknown Coronavirus ramifications as well. Here’s a link to the 2020 ACME March Frozen Food Month Sweepstakes!

Everything Green…Literally! 

“Going green” typically describes sustainability efforts and environmentally friendly decisions, like recycling! But, the month of March gives “going green” new meaning. From wearing St. Paddy’s Day t-shirts, to enjoying Shamrock Shakes at McDonald’s – green becomes a sign of good luck in March! Restaurants and small shops often cater deals to the holiday festivities. Take some time to go on a cyber scavenger hunt to find all the green treasures near you!

Winter Gear to Wear or Ride! 

Set yourself up to hit the slopes next winter! Skis, snowboards, and any other winter items will be on sale as warm weather approaches. It’s a great time to pop into rental stores for even better deals. Who knows, you might get lucky and find used merchandise that is in almost-new condition!

Summer Travel, an Early Gift to Yourself! 

Although March boasts St. Patrick’s Day, it doesn’t claim any gift-giving holidays, like Christmas or Easter, that bring the whole family together. But, the seasons change with March 19 marking the first day of spring! So while you look forward to warmer days to come, start planning your summer vacations! If you’re able to book ahead on hotels, plane tickets, tours & reservations, you could SERIOUSLY be celebrating the end of March with substantial travel savings!

Chocolate…Get it Before it’s Hot! 

As warm months head our way, chocolate will be more of a challenge to bring home and even more so to order online. After all, you don’t want to have to explain to your neighbor that the melted chocolate on your pants is really melted chocolate as you step out of your car! Thrive Market offers a 25% discount this time of year since many chocolate items won’t ship without melting in the months ahead. Stock up on the deliciousness before transporting gets messy!

Cleaning Supplies…Let Spring Cleaning Begin! 

Like we mentioned earlier, March 19 marks the first day of spring this year! With spring comes spring cleaning…or at least the thought of it. You will need all of your cleaning essentials to make it happen! Vacuums and Swiffers are an efficient place to start, as many retailers such as Walmart, Target, and Bed Bath & Beyond have huge sales in March. Now the liquid cleaner you might not have known you needed, is vinegar! You’ll see an abundance of it, (and for great prices too!) because it is top-notch, non-toxic, and safe for most surfaces. And that’s only the beginning; vinegar will be in high demand to dye Easter eggs! It’s versatile and worth the investment in our book!

Time…a Valuable Possession!

Although not a tangible item, time is something we never seem to have enough of. Everyone only has 24 hours in a single day. However, daylight savings just gave us an extra hour of daylight, making the next six months feel like we have much more of that valuable commodity. We encourage you to spend your extra hour wisely with the ones you love. Invest in yourself and those around you, and continue to make memories that you can’t put a price on!
