Today is the first day of spring! Hopefully you're looking forward to it and not just dreading the onset of allergy season. Either way, here's a look at some deals and coupons to save you some money on whatever spring brings you.
Spring Cleaning and Home Projects

Once your home is neat and tidy, maybe your old decor will need some improvement. If it's been awhile since you changed your window treatments, check out Smith+Noble; they have tons of styles of window coverings, and many can even save you on energy bills by blocking out sun as the days get warmer. It pays to stock up, because coupon code 1203CQ gets you 10% off one treatment, 20% off two treatments, 30% off three treatments, and 40% off four treatments through April 9, 2012.
Health and Feeling Good
For many, the sunshine and flowers of spring just mean itchy, uncomfortable allergies. If your hay fever has you laid up at home, order medicine from Drugstore.com. Orders of $25 or more always ship for free, so stock up on health products and be sure to check their instant coupons for easy savings.
Celebrate Spring Break
Hopefully you're able to take a little time off this season and head out of town. Have somewhere warm in mind? Expedia is offering lots of deals on cruises to beach destinations like the Bahamas, Mexico, and more.
Travelocity has two offers ending this month that you'll want to get in on.

Both of these offers expire March 31, 2012.
Spring Fashion Trends
Spring means putting away heavy overcoats and dark colors and donning things that are bright, light and cheerful. But what's hot on the radar for 2012? Color-blocking is everywhere, and Lord & Taylor has tons of items that fit the bill, like this top by Guess. Now through March 27, coupon code SALE will get you 20% off regular and sale priced items.
