The Best Things to Buy in July
July means fabulous 4th of July sales, but the deals don’t end there. Mid summer is one of the best times to shop for both indoor and outdoor furniture, kitchen appliances, laptop computers, and garden tools, so maybe it’s time to replace that old push-powered lawn mower. Summer clothes are also good to buy in July, so check out your closet and see if you’re missing that essential item you must have in your wardrobe… like a new pair of stylish summer sandals!
It seems crazy, school just ended, but stores are already gearing up for back-to-school shopping. These days, essential school supplies include laptop computers. New models are released in time for the start of classes, which means stores have to clear out old inventory to make room for the new models. So be on the lookout for back-to-school special deals.
New furniture is delivered to stores in August for fall. That means the old inventory must go, so July is a key time to look for bargains. Expect to find deals on indoor furniture as well as outdoor patio tables and chairs. In July, Target has big sales on furniture, and so do many other stores. Home decor goes on sale in July, too, including china, bed linens, lamps, and lampshades. Even though your focus is on the garden at this time of the year, it may pay to do some interior redecorating. In short, home goods are good to buy in July.
Grills and Grilling Supplies
Summer doesn’t last forever, so just as outdoor furniture that hasn’t sold yet is likely to go on sale, you may also find bargains on grills, especially at Independence Day sales. If you don’t pick one up then, keep your eyes open—grills get marked down as the summer advances.
While you’re planning those summer home improvements, July is a great time to pick up new tools. They’re on sale at Ace Hardware and Sears, as well as other retailers. According to the AARP Almanac, July is the best time to buy gardening equipment as retailers start to worry about all the excess gear they wanted to sell in the spring. So don’t let the summer heat slow you down. July is a good time of the year to get out and hunt for bargains!
