Here are a few more tips to help you maximize your budget:

Right  now is a great time to shop, because stores need to clear out summer merchandise, and are slashing prices to get customers in! Start checking the clearance racks at your favorite stores!




Things To Buy In July


According to Deal News, July is a great time to buy:

  • Sandals, swimsuits, and all types of summer clothing - This is about it for summer clothes. Stores are clearing them out for school and fall lines.

  • Tools – Now that Father’s Day is over, many retailers are starting to mark down the prices on tools.

  • 46-inch HDTV’sDeal News says some are as low as $500!

  • BBQ Grills – As Target and Walmart (and other retailers) start switching their seasonal grill section into their back to school section, they will start to slash prices on their grills to get rid of them and make room! If you are looking to buy a new grill, I’d start keeping your eyes peeled to the prices, because Deal News says that you might be able to find them cheapest if you can wait until the end of July, or August.


  • Plus, Remember That Back To School Supply Sales are staring now! Plus, start watching for awesome prices on laptops! As back to school sales start, you will see some awesome sales on laptops, and computers.


What You Shouldn’t Buy In July

 
  • Sunglasses – They are in demand right now. Your best bet is to look for a new pair of shades after Labor Day to get the cheapest prices!

  • Patio Furniture and Sets – You might also see these marked down at Target or Walmart as they make room for the back to school section (as stated above about grills). However, at some stores, the biggest markdowns on patio furniture comes in September. So, consider checking around, and watching prices before you decide to buy!
