What to Buy and What to Skip in July

There will be some great deals in July because of Amazon Prime Day, but also some things you should avoid. Here is a list of items you should buy, or skip, in the month of July.

Buy: Televisions

Fourth of July brings around a lot of deals, including on televisions. You’ll find major discounts on name brand televisions for the whole month. It’s a great time to upgrade your home entertainment system and a brand new television could be the icing on the cake.

Skip: Furniture

If you need to replace a couch or bed, but it’s not an emergency, wait for Labor Day. The prices are still too high if you want to save money. You can potentially save hundreds of dollars if you can be patient.

Buy: Camping Gear

Stores are looking to sell all of their camping inventory, so if you’re looking for new gear, now is the time. You will find discounts on tents, sleeping bags, and camping tools throughout the month. If you want to stock up on quality equipment, or get a birthday gift for a loved one who enjoys the outdoors, check out the deals in July.

Skip: Sandals

If you’re looking for some summertime footwear, you’ve missed your chance at great deals. You’ll have to wait a couple months for the prices to drop. End of season sales and Labor Day will be your next opportunity for new sandals.
