At the Bayless house, the 4th of July is usually spent at our cabin in Wisconsin or with my husbandís family in Ohio, and it also usually marks the beginning of the end of summer. By mid-July, we unofficially start football season at our house. My husband starts football camp (which in turn gets us ready for when practice really starts in early August) and my oldest son starts flag football practice. We spend any free time trying to fit in all the summer activities that were on our bucket list in May, and we havenít crossed off yet.
Just because our house gets busy with football, doesnít mean I take a break from stocking up on Julyís lowest priced items. Much like June, in July, youíll continue to see great sales on barbeque items like condiments, buns, salad dressings, chips, sodas. If you havenít already stocked your pantry with these items, July is the time to do it before they go back to higher prices for the rest of the year.
Iíve made it a habit this year to buy mayonnaise and ketchup just about every time I head to the store for groceries. Even if I donít have a coupon for them, paying $2 or less is a great deal! I donít want to get stuck having to pay $4 for a jar of Hellmanís come November when we run out! You should continue to watch for excellent produce sales at your supermarkets too. We canít seem to keep enough fresh strawberries and blueberries at our house this year!
After the 4th of July, I would expect to see Back to School sales showing up at Walmart, Target, etc. Last year, I found a lot of great sales on school supplies at Walgreens, too. Itís hard for me to believe Iíll have 2 kids in school this year!
So while the calendar says summer is halfway over, there are still a lot of summer sales to be had, even if July starts the beginning of the end of summer like it does at our house.
