What to Buy in July
Posted on Monday, July 8th, 2013 at 7:00 am
If you wait for the perfect time, you can save a lot of money on the items you need to buy. Every month, there are specific things that go on sale. Typically they are the things that most people will no longer get much use from after the season changes or the holiday ends. Smart shoppers can save some money if they plan ahead. Here are some great things to buy in July.
The 4th of July is a huge day for grilling. After that, the use of grills tends to slow down. If you wait until the middle of July, you can get a great deal on a grill. Stores will want to move out their stock of grills while the weather is still warm enough for people to want to use them. Buy a grill in mid-July, and you won’t need to look for one shortly before the next 4th of July.
Hot summer weather inspires people to head for the beach. If you happen to live in or near New York City (or will be vacationing there) this is to your advantage. Companies that are putting on Broadway shows will have a smaller audience. Ticket prices drop to encourage people to come fill the seats and enjoy the show.
Personally, I think that the concept of “Christmas in July” is a bit strange. That being said, lots of people enjoy it. July is a good month to pick up Christmas decorations for a very low price. Check a store’s website to see if they are having a “Christmas in July” sale. Newspaper inserts may also lead you to more of these types of sales.
July is National Ice Cream Month. Browse through your favorite coupon websites and you will find plenty of coupons for ice cream. Make sure you have room in your freezer to store it all before you accidentally purchase too much.
Stores need to quickly reduce their stock of swimwear in July. There are only a few weeks of summer vacation, and summer weather, left before school starts again. The number of people hitting the beach, or taking a vacation, will drop off. If you, or someone in your family, needs a new swimsuit now is the time to shop for one. You will find that the prices have been greatly reduced from what they originally were.
