5 things you should buy just in time for spring cleaning, Consumer Reports says

Consumer Reports is known for tracking the prices of many products all year long, so here are some discounted items that may be worth a purchase this spring.

Are you in the market for a grill? The Dyna-Glo barrel-style charcoal grill scores well in cooking evenness, convenience, and cleaning. It sells for $223 at Walmart and on Wayfair.

Another April favorite on sale are lawn mowers. A deal that stands out is the EGO battery-powered lawn mower for $500 at Lowe's.

EGO also has a battery-powered handheld leaf blower for $160 on Amazon and at Lowe's.

If you plan to spend more time outdoors, make sure not to forget about spring cleaning your indoor digs.

Consumer Reports found the Shark Rotator bagless upright vacuum goes for $250 on Amazon.

"Consumers are thinking more about spring cleaning and retailers know that, and so to make sure that they're the ones that are getting people's business, they offer deeper discounts," said Samantha Gordon with Consumer Reports.

Keep your curb appeal this month with a string trimmer. The Snapper, a battery-powered string trimmer, can be purchased for $241 on Amazon or at Home Depot.
