I cut an article out of a newspaper years ago that detailed which months you should buy particular items and have kept the guide ever since. If you want to save money, it helps to remember that certain items go on sale every year about the same time. This is due to established retail cycles.
The month of June not only brings the official start of summer, but
also a variety of saving opportunities. The warmer weather provides the perfect opportunity to spruce up your home a bit. Due to that, indoor and outdoor paint is often on sale. Paint is an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up your home, add some much-needed color, prep your home for the real estate market, and improve curb appeal. By purchasing paint in June, you can make beautifying your home particularly budget-friendly.
Speaking of making your home look better, between the home improvement push that often pervades summer and the arrival of Father’s Day, tools are often on sale in June. Whether you are purchasing some new tools for your dad or spouse or for your own use around your home, you will find plenty of sales to take advantage of. Stock up on all of the cool gadgets and power tools that you have been wanting at attractive sale prices during June.
This time of the year is also filled with celebrations — graduations, Father’s
Day, weddings, and summer parties. Due to that, there are a couple of party-related items that tend to be on sale during June. First of all, attend all of these summer events in style when you buy men’s suits on sale. A suit can be a nice gift for your father, grandfather, or spouse. Along with suits, you may find the popular Father’s Day gift — ties — also discounted.
Nothing says celebration like popping a bottle of champagne. With all of the festivities going on during this time of the year, you are likely to find champagne on sale in June. Be sure to stock up for future festivities by buying some bubbly this month.
And speaking of drinking, June provides sales on something that is both giftable and practical. Look for special prices on dishware to update your dining look or to provide as a gift to a couple that is just starting their household together. You may also be able to snag some deals on cookware and kitchen accessories due to graduation sales, so consider this your chance to update the contents of your kitchen at a discount.
With the start of summer, it is officially bathing-suit season. If you are concerned about how you are going to look at the beach or pool this summer, June can be a great time to take advantage of sales on gym memberships. Renew your devotion to your New Year’s resolution to lose weight, and get in shape at a price that your budget can afford. Or purchase a gym membership for that special graduate, father, or newlywed couple as a practical and useful present.
June can be a time to shop and save if you know what to look for. Don’t forget to combine those savings with your FreeShipping.com membership to really get your money’s worth, including 5% cash back on purchases.
Happy summer savings!
