Mid-Summer Sale: The Best Bargains Right Now

Posted on 07/11/2013

It's a great time to retreat to the cool oasis known as your local shopping mall. Not only does it offer relief from the summer heat, but it also provides special mid-summer sales that you won't find any other time of year. Make a beeline for these bargains right now because when it comes to snagging a deal, timing is everything.

Dishes and Kitchen Accessories
It's wedding season. Even if you're not the one getting hitched and you don't have any wedding invites in your social calendar you can still take advantage of sales on dishes, small appliances and kitchen accessories. You may not be setting up a home, but you can at least update yours affordably.

Outdoor Furniture
Stores figure that most people who want to upgrade their patios and porches for the summer have already done it. By this time of year they're starting to seriously slash prices on outdoor furniture. That means that patient shoppers can now cash in on incredible deals.

Just like outdoor furniture, swimwear tends to be something that people shop for at the start of the summer season. By the time the fourth of July hits retailers are gearing up for back-to-school shopping and winding down summer promotions. That makes mid-summer a great time to score a deal on a swimsuit or even a new beach towel.

Red, White and Blue
Now that July 4th has passed, the demand for red, white and blue items has slowed. Many of these products will go on sale to make room for the next big holiday. Pick up red, white and blue party supplies, picnic items or home decor. Save it for next summer or plan a nautical event in the meantime.

School Supplies
Towards the end of July expect to see back-to-school sales and promotions. This means you'll be able to score good deals on everything from office supplies to dorm accessories. It's also a great time of year to upgrade your laptop or desktop computer.

Indoor Furniture
Just like fashion, furniture has seasons. New designs tend to hit the showrooms in February and August. To make room for fresh inventory expect to see red tags and clearance prices on sofas, armchairs and coffee tables.
