CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The large inflation spike being felt across America is making pretty much everything cost more these days, so getting anything on sale is a welcomed treat.
The Labor Department reported Thursday inflation rose 0.8% from January to February, up from the 0.6% increase from December to January. And that report didn't include rising gas prices, which have jumped about 62 cents a gallon since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24.
With spring right around the corner, here are six bargain buys to take advantage of during the month of March, according to AARP:
Retailers are getting ready for spring break travelers, as well as clearing out older inventory to make way for new collections. Expect to save up to 50% on some items.
2. Frozen food
March is Frozen Food Month. Who knew such a thing existed? The good news is you could benefit by getting up to 10% off certain frozen food items and buy one, get one deals.
Expect sales of up to 30% off just in time for spring cleaning.

4. Beauty products
When the seasons change, hair and makeup routines do, too. Expect to find up to 50% off certain products as we transition to spring.
5. Skis and winter gear
It’s almost a wrap on this winter’s skiing season, so expect to see up to 40% off skis and other winter gear during this month’s end-of-season sales.
6. Golf Clubs
Golf is a game best enjoyed during warm weather. As spring approaches, you can expect to see prices on last season’s golf clubs discounted up to 10%.
