Smarter Home: Get New Outdoor Furniture Now

The best time to buy anything for your outdoor space is right now. As soon as Fourth of July hits, retailers slash prices on summer items. You can get amazing deals on outdoor furniture like patio sets, lounge chairs, tables, umbrellas and more. And with at least 3 months left of great outdoor weather, why wait?

My parents have a traditional wood deck with a dining table and six chairs that looks like teak. It's great, I love sitting out there, but it's hard to do so during the day, especially with the baby, because there's no umbrella. They also have a garden off the deck and want to add a small bench and table, which is great for additional seating and somewhere more remote to go and have a glass of iced tea and read a book.

My brother has a newer house with a pool in back and a sprawling deck. He needs furniture to fill it and is looking at new patio sets. A set like this patio set would be perfect, and when it's on sale is less than $300 which is unbelievable.

There's still a lot of summer left, why not enjoy without paying full price for your outdoor living space?

Do you plan on taking advantage of mid-summer sales?

If we had the space outside, we would definitely be picking up some outdoor furniture.  Where we live right now, it's not exactly possible.  Hopefully in our next home, we'll be able to do this.  I miss hanging out in the backyard.

I already have everything I need, but I agree, now is the best time for it.
