Many of us had to postpone or cancel our summer plans last year. But not this year! Brighter days are finally here, and it’s time to Take Back the Summer, celebrating the season on our own terms. Whatever plans you have lined up, sticking to your budget is always a must. We researched the top discounted items you should not skip in July to help you save year-round.

Summer Apparel

For many of us, warm days expire in a few months, and we want to make the most of every sunny, picture-perfect day with a new summer outfit. Since we’re halfway through the summer, now is a good time to treat yourself as you’ll likely find those trendy summer items at a slightly reduced price compared to June.

Tools and Paint

Ok, we know what you’re thinking. Home renovations are usually a task for the spring, but specific items also go on sale in the summer. After Father’s Day, home improvement stores like The Home Depot and Lowe’s heavily promote tools and accessories. No one wants to paint in the summer heat, so stores will offer discounts to entice shoppers. Even if you’re not planning to paint right now, you can purchase paint to use later, since unopened cans last for years. 

Patriotic Items

Oh say can you see, the amazing deals on all things red, white, and blue? The Fourth of July is quickly approaching, and you can expect great deals to get you in the mood (plus, you can stock up now for next year’s celebrations). For our Canadian readers, Canada Day falls on July 1st, meaning that patriotic items will also go on sale at the beginning of the month.

BBQ Favorites

With The Fourth of July and Canada Day kicking off the month, you’ll see deals on burgers, buns, hotdogs, condiments, charcoal, and all your BBQ essentials at your local grocery stores. Because these holidays are prime time for outdoor get-togethers, you’ll also see essentials like disposable plates and cutlery at reduced prices. Don’t forget to check your local weekly ads on Flipp to take advantage of these savings.

BBQ Grills

June was the best time to buy grilling accessories, but if you’re looking for a BBQ grill, now is your chance to get one at a discount. After the Fourth of July, retailers will have discounts on grills to make way for new inventory. Take advantage of these sales now, as there’s still tons of time left to make good use of one. If a new grill is in your future, check out our blog post, BBQ Grill Buying Guide: Compare Charcoal, Pellet, Gas, and Electric, to find out which one is right for you.

Back-to-School Electronics

Summer is in full swing, but back-to-school season is just around the corner. You’ll start to see deals on back-to-school-related items around mid-July. Electronics like laptops, monitors, headphones, and accessories will top the list, so be on the lookout for the deals starting mid-July through early August. The longer you wait, the fewer options you’ll have when more people start to shop for back-to-school next month.
