7 Things to Buy in July

In the very midst of summer when easy living, barbecues and Independence Day fireworks are on our minds, there are many deals to be had. If you know what to look for, July could be a great time to score some discounts on items you need while others are tanning at the beach. Here are some of the things you should look for on sale throughout the month of July:


New furniture is usually released bi-annually in the months of February and August, which is why January and July are the best times to find deals on furniture. In July, look for discounts on the furniture that was released in February while retailers make room for new inventory.

Broadway Tickets

Trying to plan a trip to New York soon to see this year’s Tony Award winners and nominees? July may be the best chance you have to see some great, professional theater on the cheap. In the summer, theaters are more likely to have empty seats (since many New Yorkers and tourists take beach or camping trips). Therefore, theaters are likely to cut down on rates in order to fill the seats.


You should be able to find discounts on spring’s fashions in July. Just make sure to choose a suit that has a timeless style and you’re good to go.


Since no one wants to paint their house in the sweltering summer heat, you can certainly find deals on paint in the middle of the summer when demand is low.


Butter production is best usually in June or July which makes prices lower than in most months. Stock up now since butter can be stored well in the freezer for at least 6 months.

Home Decor

While we’re still in wedding season, you can take advantage of sales on home items like table linens and dinnerware. Look for deeply discounted items and two-for-one sales.

Soda, Beer and Condiments

You can barely go out in the month of July without seeing sales on items useful for Independence Day celebrations. Stock up on things like ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce and drinks while you can on the cheap.
