Smarter Shopping: Big Bargain Time

Right about now, in the middle of July, you will notice something wonderful if you are out shopping for clothes: Even though it's still super hot and smack in the middle of summer, most summer clothes are either on sale or about to go on sale, giving you the opportunity to save a whole bundle of cash on anything from kid's swimsuits and shorts to fun sun dresses or hats for you, or some nice short sleeved shirts or new gear for your hubby. From sandals to sand toys, every is starting to fly off the shelves because if you have not already taken some time off this summer, chances are you are right about to, if you're going to do it at all this season. Before you know it, August will be here and it's time to start thinking about back to school time, for retailers at least. And that's a whole different ball game.

So make a smart shopping list now, maybe even think ahead to your next sun-filled destination or vacation, or even plan for your kid's needs NEXT spring and summer, and see what great sales you can find to save yourself and your family a whole bundle of cash on warm weather clothes this month.

Just this past week, I've seen amazing sales (like 40 to 70 percent OFF!) in stores all around my city and in the suburbs around us at larger malls when I was visiting family nearby last weekend. And what was really exciting was the sales were on hot new styles which probably just came out like 6 weeks ago. So go ahead and revamp your summer look right now, because it's big bargain time on summer styles! Woo hoo!

Which summer items are you excited to find on sale this month?

I love the sales. I just got a ton of clothes for my kids for next to nothing, between the clearance sales, and coupons for $ off we scored big time :)

 I just bought 2 outdoor chairs, 2 tables and a grill gazebo all on sale.

I also bought 3 shirts and a skirt, total cost was under $12.

 We have summer almost year round where I live, but when we travel in summer we always check the clearance sales and are able to get some really good buys. We visited outlet malls when we were in Pa and got some good deals.

It's summer weather here for almost the whole year (Texas) but I love the sales on toddler clothing and sandals for me. :)
