WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) April is when it really starts to feel like Spring and this month may be a good time to Spring clean your home and your life! In fact it may be a good month to treat yourself! April 11th starts spa week which is when local spa’s offer special deals on services you may not typically spring for.

“The offers that we’re giving is a great introductory rate for people who have not done spa services,” said Michelle Shaw, owner of Secret Beauty in Wallingford.

With wedding season around the corner Shaw says whether it’s for an occasion or just for you, it’s a popular time to try something new.

“It gets really busy. We have a lot of clients calling for a consultations, which, they’re free and they’re worried about their skin and worried about what they’re going to look like when they take the coat off,” she said.

It’s also a great month to hit up consignment shops. People are spring cleaning their homes and closets which means you have a better chance of finding a great deal.

April 22nd is Earth Day so look around for “green” deals on certain appliances or gardening tools. While you’re in the hardware store, Financial Advisor Michael Chadwick, suggests you check for off-season equipment like snowblowers.

“They’re not going to sell much of this stuff until next winter. So, for the retailers who want to get rid of this stuff, you can potentially get this stuff at a massive discount,” he said.

A few things not to buy, summer essentials that are full price right now, mattresses and furniture. That stuff will all go on sale around Memorial Day.

Don’t forget about Mother’s Day! As you see some of these deals pop up maybe treat yourself and pick up something for the women in your life! Their big day is just around the corner in May.
