The Budget Diet girl (a.k.a. your free personal organizer) is here again with a checklist to help you plan ahead for April.

Tax Day Freebies!
On April 15th the tax man cometh and the restaurants giveth! Take at look at last year’s Tax Day Freebies and Deals, and I expect similar promotions this year. I’ll update the article as soon as the deals are posted for this year.
What is it about April that makes us want to clean, organize and weed out? Get motivated to organize your closet by reading 5 Easy Steps to An Organized Closet or Weed Out Your Wardrobe (my personal favorite!). Remember, spring cleaning can be an opportunity to make money on your unwanted items – learn how to clean out and make money!
If you’re ready to plan your summer vacation, now’s the time to check out Groupon Getaways! You’ll find savings of up to 70%, and the deals update each Tuesday.
Shopping Calendar: April is a great time to buy…
- cookware – perfect for college grads or newlyweds!
- electronics – most new models come out in the spring, so strike a bargain on last year’s model!
- office furniture
- cruises – the weather is beautiful, & we’re in between spring break and summer vacations!
- fruits: sorry…this is not the best month for fruit!
- vegetables: artichokes, asparagus, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, greens, potatoes, sweet onions
Thanks to my friends at FreeShipping.org for keeping us up to date on the best buys each month!
