Don’t sleep on these sales

If you’re looking to upgrade your living area, your home office, or even your outdoor space, you can’t afford to miss this year’s Memorial Day furniture sales. You’ll find beds and mattresses at a fraction of their usual prices and bundle deals on patio furniture just before peak BBQ season, as well as desks, chairs, and dining pieces at unbeatable prices.

“Memorial Day sales present an excellent opportunity to save money on more expensive items for the home,” explains Trae Bodge, a smart shopping expert, who considers Memorial Day weekend the best time of year next to Black Friday to score game-changing deals on household essentials. “If your mattress is worse for wear, you’ll find deep discounts on mattresses and bedding from legacy retailers, as well as upstart direct-to-consumer bed-in-box brands. And if your washer and dryer are on their last legs, look for strong sales on appliances from major retailers.”

And now, here’s what you’ve been waiting for: the sales! Happy shopping!

Walmart: Up to 80 percent off home clearance

“Walmart will be offering up to 80 percent off their Home Clearance section,” Bodge reveals. “Plus, you can score a bonus 2 percent cash back from over Memorial Day weekend.” In general, mattresses and bed frames are among the most discounted items at many online retailers, but Walmart will be offering truly rock-bottom prices. This gray panel platform bed has already been rolled back to a base price of $149 for a queen, and it may be marked down even lower as Memorial Day nears. Up to 70 percent off everything

The Memorial Day Blowout Sale will run from May 14 through June 3 this year, giving shoppers plenty of time to fill (and refill) their carts with all the home decor goodies they’ve ever wanted. You’ll find free shipping on everything, every category will be on sale (even non-furniture), and the prices will be so low that you’ll be seriously tempted to redecorate every room in your house. Patio furniture and living room chairs will start at $99, rugs will start at $49, and designer home decor will be offered for less than the price of a round of summery drinks.
