(ABC 6 News) – With nicer weather and maybe even a little spring cleaning on the horizon, March signals a fresh start with warmer months ahead.

When it comes to the items to help you get there, Consumer Reports reveals some of its top-rated products on discount this March.

Let the spring savings commence!

“Retailers are shifting their focus to spring cleaning and outdoor activities as March rolls in. Shoppers can expect to see discounts on cleaning products, outdoor tools, and all the things they might need to do any home renovation,” says Consumer Reports’ Samantha Gordon.

If you’re in the market for seasonal items like air purifiers, string trimmers and vacuums you are in luck!

The Shark Cordless Stick Vac is priced as low as $412 at Amazon. This vacuum cleaner aced CR’s tests for cleaning bare floors and edges of rooms.

Next, if you’re looking for an air purifier to keep those pesky seasonal allergies at bay, The Blueair Blue Pure 211i Max is $349 at Amazon. CR says this air purifier performed very well in its tests for removing dust, pollen, and smoke.

Now that the inside of your house is clean, you may want to keep the outside tidy with a new string trimmer.

The Milwaukee String Trimmer is as low as $222.97 at Amazon. CR found this string trimmer cuts down tall grass and weeds aggressively.

And as we approach the middle of the month, CR has some insight that could help you get the best sleep yet.

“The second week of March is sleep awareness week. What that means for you as a shopper is you’ll see lots of deals on things like mattresses, bedding, pillows, and sleep accessories like alarm clocks and sleep masks,” says Gordon.

Mark it on your calendar and do some early shopping now. The Original Casper Pillow (Standard) is as low as $58.50 at Casper. This pillow aced CR’s tests in breathability.

And if you’re looking for a new mattress, the Denver Mattress Doctor’s Choice Plush (Queen) is as low as $699.99 at Denver Mattress. This mattress performed excellent in CR’s durability tests.
