You can get the lowest price of the year on just about anything if you know the best time to shop for it. There are annual sales that happen in July that only happen once a year. Here are some of the sales to look for in July.
4th of July Sales
Many stores will hold a three-day 4th of July sale that starts on July 4th and disappears by the end of the weekend. This is a great time to shop for home electronics, furniture, and new mattresses. There will also be clearance sales of summer clothing going on, so don’t forget to stop by your favorite clothing stores. Take a moment to do some online comparison shopping at the big department stores. Doing so will help you determine which one to go to first (and which you should skip over). Video games may also be included in this sale.
Christmas in July Sales
It has become a tradition for stores that sell Christmas trees, ornaments, stockings, and other decorations to hold a Christmas in July Sale. Department stores are good places to start if you want to shop a Christmas in July sale. They tend to bring out the “leftover” stock from last Christmas in the hopes that it will sell. Visit the niche stores that sell specialized or collectable Christmas ornaments. You may end up saving more money on these items than if you bought them at the after Christmas sales.
School Supplies Sales
It seems like every year, the school supplies sales are starting earlier and earlier! Office supply stores tend to have the best deals. Compare their prices to those at the department stores. You might not have an official list of stuff that your child must bring to school next year yet. Pick up some pencils, binders, and other items that he or she will more than likely need.
Summer Clothing Sales
The first round of summer clothing sales begin at the end of June or start of July. Stores are ready to unload this year’s swimsuits, shorts, tank tops, and sandals. They need to make room for the incoming school clothing and uniforms that will be arriving in their stockrooms soon. The best part of the summer clothing sales is that the weather will stay warm enough for you and your family to wear the clothes before the season changes.
