Sales by the Month

Hi Everyone,
We all know that there are certain sales that take place at certain times of the year - flour, sugar, baking stuff all goes on sale beginning in November to get ready for the holidays, etc. I came across a month-by-month list of sales that I thought I'd share to help us all save some money.

Monthly Sales
  • Holiday decor and wrapping paper
  • Linens (Invented by a Philly department store in 1878, "white sales" are now practically law.)
  • Toys
  • Treadmills and ellipticals (Stores are trying to push these out the door before your resolutions tank!)
  • Vacation packages
  • Furniture (The lowest prices hit around Presidents' Day, in order to move merch at a traditionally sluggish time.)
  • Homes and condos
  • Lobsters and steaks (Grocery stores stock up for February 14 and discount immediately after.)
  • Chocolate (Yes, it's from Valentine's Day--but really cheap!)
  • Luggage (Retailers cut prices to boost sales in a month when people aren't traveling much.)
  • Outdoor gear and winter clothing
  • Cookware (Welcome to the start of graduation and wedding season...)
  • Home-improvement supplies
  • Tires and auto parts (For National Car Care Month--who knew?!)
  • Air conditioners (Buy now, not in July.)
  • Camping and outdoor gear
  • Summer clothes (Memorial Day sales!)
  • Mattresses (Stores are making way for the new models.)
  • Gym memberships (Because who wants to work out inside when it's beautiful out?)
  • Caribbean cruises
  • Lingerie (Retailers like Macy's,, and Victoria's Secret turn over inventory this month.)
  • Laptops
  • Tools and hardware (Happy Father's Day!)
  • Sandals and swimsuits
  • Furniture (New styles introduced at April's big trade show are finally hitting the market, so last year's models are super-discounted.)
  • Picnic supplies (Fourth of July + nearing end of summer season = sales bonanza.)
  • Outdoor grills (Great selection, good prices.)
  • Kid clothing and school supplies (It's the annual back-to-school price war that you know so well.)
  • iPhones and iPods (New models usually debut now, so old ones are cheap.)
  • 2013 cars (When 2014's start hitting the lot, dealers have to empty out some parking spaces.)
  • Airfare (Vacay's over, sadly.)
  • Bikes
  • Summer apparel
  • Grills (Meh selection, awesome prices.)
  • Patio furniture
  • Winter coats (Yes, they'll go cheap again in March, but these sales offer the best choices.)
  • Gadgets, electronics, and small household appliances (What with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this is your sweet spot.)
  • Winter clothing (Everyday retailers like Target and Kohl's focus on Black Friday, luxury stores like Nordstrom and Coach on Cyber Monday's online savings.)
  • Toys (It's all about the second and third weeks this month.)
  • Large appliances
  • Gift cards (Okay, it's not a sale sale--these good-as-cash cards never have those--but manufacturers offer bundled deals like "Buy $50, get $10 free" to goose holiday shopping.)
