June is the month of sun-kissed beaches, dripping ice cream cones, backyard BBQs … and spectacular sales.
Use this handy list to see what to grab and what to skip this June.
Skip it: Grills
If you wait until August or September to splurge on that high-end grill, you should be able to buy it for half the price!
Grab it: Donuts!
National Donut Day is in June; join in the celebration! Krispy Kreme will hand you a baked treat just for walking through their doors on Friday, June 1st!.
Skip it: Designer clothing
Love brand-name clothing, purses and shoes? You’ll be wise to wait another month before giving your wardrobe an overhaul.
Toward July’s end, you’ll be able to nab incredible deals on name brands like Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs and more at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale and other high-end retailers.
Grab it: Movie tickets
You’ll find inexpensive movie tickets this summer to help kids beat the heat and offer families a fun and economical outing.
Skip it: TVs
You won’t find much in the way of TV deals this month, and you’ll be stuck paying full price – or more – on any purchase. It’s best to wait until next season when TV prices start dropping.
Grab it: Outdoor gear
Pick up outdoor gear for a great price when you most need it! June is a great time to stock up on fishing, hiking and camping gear and supplies.
Skip it: School supplies
You’re better off waiting another month or two before stocking up on pencils and paper. Back-to-school sales start rolling out in July, but don’t pick up speed until mid-August.
Grab it: Gym memberships
Summertime can get dry for gyms. Cash in on this drop in business by snagging a great deal on a gym membership this June. If you’re not ready to sign up for a full year, you might be able to land a free trial day or two, or a complimentary class.
No more excuses for not getting into shape!
Skip it: Laptops
If you’re in the market for a new laptop, it’s best to wait until the back-to-school sales start in July and August. Laptops will be marked down then along with all the school supplies your child needs before September.
Grab it: Kitchenware
You’ll find the most popular wedding gifts on sale this month, namely dishware and cookware. Take advantage of these sales to buy wedding gifts, replace old dishes or stock up on pots, pans and glassware.
