Spring is (hopefully) at our doorstep, but even if you’re planning to stay glued to the couch for all of March Madness, you’ll also likely be doing a bit of spring shopping. To help you save big, we’ve mined the extensive DealNews archives for sales, coupons, daily deals and individual products from the past few years to guide you in your quest to make the savviest purchases this month. From chocolates to iPads, here are the best and worst things to buy in March.

Peruse the advice, then consider signing up for the DealNews Select Newsletter to get the best deals of the day delivered to your inbox.

Treat yourself to chocolate

Did you not get the sweets you hoped for on Valentine’s Day? Well luckily you can survey high-end chocolate shops for any lingering V-day treats. As always after a holiday, themed sweets go on sale at any store with overstock. This month, look for treats that haven’t been gobbled up, and you’ll find discounts of up to 50 percent off at places such as Godiva. (Although so far, the brand has only slashed up to 40 percent off.) Also check the gift section of department stores for other decadent ways to treat yourself on a budget.

Skip the lingerie

You may think that immediately after the most romantic day of the year, you’d see huge discounts on lingerie. But, although we do indeed see some price cuts, it’s not really the best time to buy underthings. Instead, wait for June and July; that’s when Victoria’s Secret unveils its famed Semi-Annual Sale, and last year around the same time, we also saw excellent markdowns from a plethora of other retailers, including Frederick’s of Hollywood, Maidenform and Bare Necessities.
