The Best Time of Year to Make Purchases for your Home
Pam Gebhardt & Leslie Tomasini ,
While planning for the new year, I came across an article detailing The Best Time of Year to Buy Things for Your Home. Knowing the advice could be beneficial for all homeowners, I wanted to share it with you as well. When you have a moment, take a look at the detailed rundown HouseLogicprovides. I have also written out a few key takeaways below:
Bedding and Linen: Department and home stores often hold “white sales” in January with deep discounts on sheets, towels, and linens.
Storage/Organizing Solutions: Retailers know people are motivated to declutter and organize their homes in the new year. This is the best time to stock up on all the baskets and bins you have been eyeing throughout the year.
TVs: Sales for televisions start in January and spill over into February. If you missed the big electronic sales of November/December, this is a good time to buy.
Winter Items: As we approach the end of the season, retailers will start unloading cold-weather products. Look for sales on apparel and winter sports gear.
MARCH & APRIL
Tax software: Retailers like to discount tax-prep items in March, ahead of Tax Day in April.
St. Patrick's & Easter Decor: Visit stores immediately after these spring holidays for the best decor deals.
Green Products: Though not highly advertised, April's Earth Day can bring discounts on energy saving and green home products.
Appliances, Furniture, Mattresses etc... Memorial Day sales are big so you will see discounts on all sorts of items this month.
Father's day Items. Men's clothing, grills, tools, and electronics will all be on sale in honor of the Father's Day celebration.
JULY & AUGUST
Amazon: Prime Day is historically held in July, where Amazon offers huge discounts on an array of popular products.
Summer Apparel: Retailers want to make way for fall in the late summer months, so items like swimsuits, shorts, and sandals usually go on sale late July/early August.
School Supplies: Though sales can often start as early as July, August typically sees the best sales for paper, pens, kids shoes, and other back-to-school related items.
Mattresses and home appliances are often marked down significantly during Labor Day sales.
Outdoor Furniture: This is truly the best time to snag outdoor furniture sets and other outdoor products for your home.
NOVEMBER & DECEMBER
Between Black Friday and Christmas deals, the sales are endless at the end of the year. Remember, many retailers start their Black Friday sales in early November, so don't wait until Thanksgiving to snag your deals.
