June/July Buying Guide

June 03, 2018

After Fourth of July:

-Picnic items: disposable dishes/table clothes

-Patriotic decorations

-Patriotic clothes – Stores want to get these items out of their inventory quickly after the Fourth celebrations are over, so wait until after the holiday to pick up your star-spangled gear.


Seasonal Produce:

-Sweet corn, cucumber, basil

-Apricots, mango, peaches

-Blackberries, blueberries, cherries



-Indoor furniture in particular

July is a great time to replace some old furniture. As a general rule, furniture stores bring in new stock in August, meaning that July is a scramble to clear out the old for the new. This brings on a whole lot of sales on last year’s models.


Gym Memberships

During summer months, gym sign-ups are typically lower due to the available outdoor activities. Because of this, you may be able to snag a deal on a membership by asking the gym to give you a free trial month or waive the initiation fee. If the gym is falling behind in membership sign-ups, you just might have a good chance of saving a quick buck here.



Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Event

Usually you would be encouraged not to buy swimwear during summer months, however, every January and June, Victoria’s Secret throws its Semi-Annual sale, where you can save up to 50% off on swimsuits, lingerie, and loungewear. In like fashion, competing lingerie stores may also lower their prices in order to compete.


Here are some holidays that you might check out for some FREEBIES:

First Day of Summer – June 21
