We’re officially a week into March and the first signs of spring are starting to appear. But before we dive headfirst into the new season, we wanted to take a look back at the past month and the products that everyone was shopping.
February brought plenty of occasions for celebration, from Valentine’s Day to the long Presidents Day weekend, so people were eager to snatch up clever gifts and take advantage of those holiday deals, so it’s not surprising that items like chic bags and affordable tech upgrades ended up being some of the most-purchased items last month. But many TODAY readers were looking ahead, adding spring cleaning essentials and year-round fashion staples to their carts as well.
From a multi-use makeup product to travel essentials, we're sharing some of the products that shoppers couldn’t get enough of last month.
