The Fourth of July is coming up, which means there’s going to be a ton of huge sales to help you enjoy the occasion even more. If you’re on a budget, you might be wondering where the best deals are going to be, so you don’t end up spending money on frivolous items. Luckily, it is easy to make a few predictions as to what the Fourth of July sales will bring. So, get your budget ready, because if you shop in these ten areas you should find some of the best savings around. This should help liven up your holiday immensely.
Late spring and early summer sales tend to be the best when it comes to mattresses. However, the Fourth of July is the last holiday you’ll find that with such amazing deals. You might want to start your sale search a week prior to the holiday as many mattress stores will get into the festivities early so they can move some mattresses. Of course, you might not want to stick with the brick and mortar stores entirely. There will be many websites offering some unbeatable deals too, so check online and offline before you choose to make your purchase. Stores like Casper might even accept the numerous coupons the store releases each year on top of the sale, so play around with your options to see how much you can save.
Summer time is one of the hottest times to grab a laptop on sale. Stores bank on the fact that there will soon be a new set of students headed to their first semester of college. So, the stores tend to fill up with customers looking to purchase. Thus, many stores drop the prices in order to efficiently compete. The Fourth of July sales might be one of the last changes you get to order a new laptop at an outstanding price before Black Friday and Cyber Monday arrive. So, make sure to at least look around if you’re in the market for such an item. It is incredibly helpful to know what you’re looking for in a laptop as well as the typical price of the item you’re seeking. This will help you make an educated decision and know when you’ve found an actual deal.
3. Summer Clothing
Summer is in full swing, which usually means it’s not the right time to shop for this attire. However, many stores will use the Fourth of July as a good time to move some of their products. So, you will most likely see some big sales at some of the leading clothing brands’ stores and websites. This might be the perfect time to stock up on shorts, sandals and even a few bathing suits. You probably won’t run into clearance prices during this time, but the sales should help you get a good variety of clothes to get you and your family through the hot months. You might even consider buying larger sizes so you’ll have a few options for the kids’ school clothes, as well as a few items for next summer.
Wedding and graduate season is upon us, which makes the Fourth of the July the perfect time to lure people in for some furniture shopping. There probably won’t be any limits as to what is going on sale during this time. You will find great prices on bed sets, living room furniture, as well as dining styles. On top of that, you will most likely run into a few deals that will help you deck out your outdoor life too. Summer is the perfect time for these deals as more people are getting outdoors and want places to eat and visit with loved ones. On top of that, it allows newlyweds or college students and graduates to purchase items for their new housing situation. Make sure you check online and in stores for your items too, as the deals will vary. With any luck, you can find the perfect match for your needs.
5. Barbecue Supplies
Grilling is pretty hot right now, especially with Fourth of July celebrations nearing. It won’t be until the holiday that you will find the sales you need to save big on these items too. So, you might want to postpone your holiday celebration until you can grab a new grill that will wow your guests. You should be able to find deals online and offline here too, so make sure to take your time when shopping. There should be ads available for these items too, since most stores will be in a hurry to get rid of their stock, so they can start prepping for their autumn needs. It won’t just be grills that will save you money. You should be able to find grill accessories like utensils, charcoal, propane and more that will cut back on your spending too.
Just like furniture, you will find many amazing deals on appliances too, so now might be the time to stock up. Kitchen appliances are going to be hot during this time, so you might want to splurge and get something that you feel will make your life a lot easier. One of the best options is to choose something that will add some fun to summer, especially your outdoor get-togethers. To satisfy this need, you might want to check out items like ice cream or snow cone makers as well as hot dog cookers or patty grills. These items can add fun to any party and will even help you save money during the hot months. Of course, if you’re lacking in anything then stock up on that too. You might also consider stocking up on potential holiday or birthday gifts that can save you money during the season of spending.
7. Sporting Goods
Getting outside is important during the summer months and the Fourth of July sales should reflect this. On top of gear for fishing and sports, you should be able to find items for your pool too. In fact, since it is so late in the season for retail, you might actually find that pools, liners and pumps are on sale during this time. This will help you cool off and will add to the entertainment of your get-togethers. You should be able to find games like croquet, badminton and horse shoes that are great party games too. Of course, there should be beach gear on sale too, so consider grabbing a surfboard, wetsuit or even just a few beach towels to make life easier.
8. Patriotic Items
Without a doubt, the Fourth of July is also bound to bring some amazing sales on patriotic items too. Since this is the last patriotic holiday of the season, you will find just about everything under the sun that is patriotic on sale during this time. One of your best options will be American Flags in all shapes and sizes. So, if your flagpole is looking empty or needs a replacement flag then now is the time to purchase one. Clothing that is considered patriotic will also be on sale, so you might want to stock up now so you can enjoy the clothes all year long or even just save them up for next summer. The deals won’t stop there though. You should be able to find everything from bumper stickers to Uncle Sam costumes during these sales, so have some fun while shopping.
The closer the holiday becomes, the greater discount you’re going to find on the fireworks in your community. Usually, stands will sell their fireworks at a high price when they first open, because most people want to rush to find the items that they want. However, if they have a huge stockpile left on the Fourth of July, they are going to go into sales mode to try to get rid of it. Many of these stands don’t stay open past the initial holiday, so you will probably find sales where you buy one item and get several free. So, make sure you hold out as much as you can. You can always check out the prices and the amount of stock left from time to time to see if you should purchase your favorite items sooner rather than later. Department stores, on the other hand, probably won’t discount their fireworks until the day after the holiday, but these items will quickly reduce in price as the days pass. So, if your community allows fireworks throughout the year then this might be a great option for you.
Food is one of the best aspects of the holiday, so it’s no surprise that you’re going to find some awesome deals here. One of the first things you should look for is food that you can use at your barbecue. An assortment of meats, vegetables and fruits will be on sale during this time, but you’ll also find deals on items like chips, condiments and premade pies. Food you cook isn’t your only option here. Many restaurants will actually offer freebies or discounted foods during this time, which will help you save a lot of money. You will have to keep an eye out for the freebies and discounts in your community. However, if you look at last year’s options then you might find that some of the restaurants will offer similar deals.
The Fourth of July is a great holiday to share with loved ones, but it can also be a good time to enjoy a few sales too. These ten ideas will help give you a general idea of the items you might consider budgeting for during the holiday. With a little luck, you’ll be able to land some great deals that will have you celebrating more than just Independence Day on the special holiday.
