In the past, I’ve told you random 4th facts and even the most popular myths about Independence Day.
Today, I’m changing it up with a “Lauren’s List” all about 4th of July deals- the ones you should snag and the ones you should skip!
Summer Clothes – Snag!
DealNews.com says we typically start seeing summer clothing on clearance during 4th of July sales. If you’re planning a tropical vacation and want some new outfits, or maybe you want to stock up for next year, now is a good time to buy. Although, let’s be real. You can wear your summer clothes almost year-round in South Florida
Laptops – Skip!
If you’re in the market for a new laptop or computer, you’re better off waiting another month or two. Back-to-School sales on these types of electronics tend to be better than the deals you’ll find in the middle of the summer.
Outdoor gear – Snag!
Deal News also says, if you love camping, hiking, and all things outdoors, Independence Day sales are a good time to grab gear for your favorite hobbies.
Grills – Skip!
Planning a Barbeque for later today, but missing the key ingredient like the grill? Well you can run out and buy one today but you’ll likely find a better price if you wait until the start of Fall.
Of course, these are just suggestions based on past trends. If you find a bargain basement price on something you actually want and need, you probably shouldn’t wait!
