Memorial Day weekend is perfect for grilling, a quick getaway, shopping and so much more. Right now is the ideal time to take advantage of amazing sales on clothing and home decor. So why not spice up your closet and your home with a couple of new purchases, or even a few items that will help create the perfect weekend BBQ?

Stock up on your summer needs at Macy’s during their Memorial Day Sale, which focuses on clothing, accessories and home goods. I’d advise taking advantage of their pricier kitchen appliances, like this Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer or mattresses, both marked down for the holiday weekend.

Now to refill some missing holes in your closet, Gap is having their Red Bright and Blue Event, where you can save up to 40% off now thru Monday (5/27) on select styles. Dresses are always my go-to staple in the warmer months, because of their ease and versatility. This season shirtdresses fit the bill for the all-in-one outfit to take you from office to evening. Add a stack of bangles and an embellished sandal to this Chambray shirtdress and you’re good to go!

Make your outdoor living space more inviting by adding a new seating area, like this four-piece wicker set from Ace Hardware. Kick it up a notch and include a patio umbrella to stay safe from the rays, and a portable firepit to give it a cozy feel for those cooler summer nights. Shop Ace’s Memorial Day event now thru Monday.

An outdoor living area isn’t complete without the perfect grill. Save now thru Monday at Lowe’s on charcoal and gas grills. Set a date for your next BBQ and impress the neighbors with this Weber Genesis E-310 Espresso 3-Burner Gas Grill. Get ready for some serious cooking!

Now after you’ve assembled your seating area and the grill is all set up,  it’s time to punch up the space. Take advantage of Pier 1 Import’s 9-Day Dealio and save up to 25% off (ends 5/27). Add those little touches that will make the space your own, because nothing beats the feel of an indoor living room recreated outside. Add a patterned outdoor rug for under the coffee table, a few colorful lanterns to the place on top, and toss some vibrant throw pillows onto the couch and voila! Home sweet home outside.

Find these Memorial Day savings and more on Find&Save. Happy shopping!
