4 Things Smart Homeowners Always Know to Do in May

May 20, 2019

lLike buying a fridge or mattress when the savings are the biggest.

 

The lazy days of summer officially kick off Memorial Day weekend.

Giving your home a little extra love this month can save you time and money.

 

#1 Chill With a New Fridge

 

 

Is yours leaking water, cooling less efficiently, or just too limited on storage space? May is the best month to buy a new refrigerator.

 

#2 Punch Up Exterior Paint

 

Winter's freezing temps and wet weather can be tough on your home's exterior, making it look a little drab come May. But that's more of an opportunity than a problem. Because the weather in May (in most regions) offers the optimum temperature range for painting your home's exterior (50-80 degrees Fahrenheit).

 

#3 Get a Deal on a Mattress

 

The older your mattress is, the more dust and mites you've got hiding in there. Eeewww. Ditch that yucky mattress for a new one in May when the industry clears the decks (or box springs? ha!) to make room for new merchandise.

You can find high-quality ones at deep discounts, saving hundreds of dollars.

#4 Deal With Overflowing Closets

 

Experts estimate we wear only 20% of our wardrobe. So why let that useless 80% take up so much storage space in your home?

Right-size your wardrobe now for tidier closets and faster dressing. Put the sentimental clothes you can't bear to part with (your college sweatshirt that doesn't fit anymore) and clothes you rarely use but still need (a suit, formalwear) in storage bins. Under-the-bed bins work.

Look for deals on storage items at Memorial Day sales.
