The Best Things to Buy in June
When summer weather hits, several types of businesses experience a downswing in sales. This means special offers and discounts are plentiful to keep the cash registers ringing. Not sure what to buy in June? Here are the top summer bargains to add to your shopping list!
Finally Join a Gym
If it’s been on your to-do list since, well, you made a New Year’s resolution to get healthier, now is the time to finally buy a gym membership. When the weather warms up and the walking paths get full, the gyms are empty. To get people back on the treadmills, gym memberships plummet in price. Look for 2-for-1 offers and low cost contracts.
Stock Up on Tools and Home Improvement Supplies
Whether you celebrate Father’s Day or not, shop the holiday ads. The best things to buy in June include household tools, yard maintenance supplies, and home improvement project needs that often go on deep discount as Father’s Day promotions. If you need a new lawn mower or have been thinking about replacing the gutters, June is the time to do it. And don’t miss out on the great automotive specials like oil changes and radiator flushes — just in time for summer road trips.
Buy Formal Clothing, Shoes and China
June is peak wedding season. You don’t have to say “I Do” to get a bargain on a new suit for the hubby or a great pair of strappy high heels for you. In addition to formal clothing, June is a great time to buy a new set of dishes or that serving platter you’d love to have on hand for the holidays. Shop early in the month while the selection of sale items are plentiful.
Stock up on Gardening Supplies
By June most gardeners have their veggies and flowers planted for the summer. Since sales are starting to dwindle, the home centers are putting gardening supplies on clearance. It’s a great time to snag a few last-minute hanging flower baskets to spruce up the yard for Fourth of July entertaining. Or stock up. If you have a garden shed or garage, buy in June for next summer’s gardening season. Bags of potting soil, a new tiller or flower pots store well.
Planning ahead on major purchases like a new lawn mower or year-long gym membership has its perks. You enjoy more cash in the bank, and retailers stay in the black. Now get out and find those bargains!
