If you are looking to save on some purchases during the month of July, you can find plenty of bargains around Independence Day weekend and beyond. Here is what to buy and what to skip in July.
Buy: Patriotic items
Pledge allegiance along with your favorite retailers by purchasing almost anything patriotic. You can pick up bargain-priced clothing, home goods, toys, party goods and so much more in the days and weeks after Independence Day. Of course, you will also find discounted July 4th-themed decor, which you can store for next year’s Independence Day festivities.
If you need a new pair of shades, you are best to wait a bit before springing for a new pair. Sunglasses are still retailing at full price in July, and they won’t start seeing discounts until September. For even steeper savings, pick up a new pair of shades in October.
Buy: School and office supplies
The start of the school year may be close to two months off, but retailers are already deep into back-to-school season by the time the calendar hits July. Check out big-box stores, like Walmart, Target and Staples, for specials on supplies, like pens and pencils, paper, crayons, scissors and more. If you keep an eye out for sales through the rest of the summer, you can enjoy significant savings on all of your school and office supplies this year.
Skip: Grills and patio furniture
Grills, patio furniture and other outdoor gear will still be retailing at full price through July. If you can wait a bit, until mid or late August, you will save a bundle on all you need to upgrade your outdoor living space.
Buy: A/C Units
A/C units will begin to drop toward the end of the month as the season passes its midpoint. If your A/C needs to be replaced, you can find a new unit at a discounted price in July.
