Spartanburg, SC -

The week before and after Memorial Day is ripe with discounts on things like clothes and certain fathers day gifts, but you may want to hold out on other items until later this summer.

We snagged some flyers from Home Improvement stores. American flags are 20 percent off, charcoal 50 at Lowe's. It's a sure sign memorial day is coming.

The price tracker DealNews says the steepest discounts are spring clothes. And shopper Cristel Coleman says she's already seen the drop.

"Memorial Day clothing, the sales right now are awesome, and this is the a great time to buy.

DealNews says the harsh winter has left more inventory for the picking, too.

This week look for price drops on tools or appliances, too.

Shopper Martha Dowling, who does wood working, says she's likely to pick some up for herself. And don't forget Dad. Father's day is only 3 weeks away, so why not save on his gift.

Now for the big ticket items like the grills, the hottest deals are yet to come. You will find some sales, but DealNews says for the steepest discounts, by them in late June or July.

As for patio furniture, wait one month longer. Dowling said she did that a few years back and saved big,

"I was concerned about waiting until August, but I waited until August and I got a great deal," said Dowling.

Finally, when it comes to electronics, DealNews predicts you'll see discounts on brand-name TV's and touch-screen laptops. But if you want an Apple product, well better go with the pie over the iPad if you're looking for sales.
