Fourth of July sales on furniture and appliances are retail traditions followed by deep discounts on summer items, making this month a great time to purchase home-related items.
So Long to Summer Gear…
Now’s your chance to purchase summer items at a steep discount. Beach towels, patio equipment, summer sporting goods, outdoor lights, grills, outdoor tableware, and coolers will all be on clearance to make room for back-to-school and fall merchandise.
Look for sales on all large appliances over the Fourth of July weekend, with especially deep discounts on refrigerators. There’s something extra appealing about buying a new fridge in July. Dehumidifiers are also discounted this month.
Wood Stains and Paint
If a painting project is on your To-Do list, Consumer Reports says July is prime time for interior and exterior paints and stains to be discounted.
July Furniture Sales
Watch for July 4th deals on furniture and then again on other major three-day holiday weekends throughout the year — similar to the sales on appliances.
Before making any major purchase, do your homework. Consumer advocacy groups, websites, and magazines such as Consumer Reports, Wise Bread, Nerd Wallet, and Money, regularly publish buying guides and tips.
