The Best Things to Buy in June

The Best Things to Buy in JuneFeeling the summer heat yet? With wedding season and Father’s Day coming up, June is a great month for deals. Here are the best things to buy this month.

Every month, we look back at the best times to buy anything during the year, and pull out items each month to remind you what’s coming. Obviously, none of this is to say you should go on a shopping spree—but if you’ve been holding off for a lower price on something, these are the things that get the sale treatment in June.


All Spring

  • Televisions and Other Electronics: The Japanese fiscal year ends in March, so companies like Sony, Canon, Sharp, and other electronics manufacturers are trying to get rid of their old stock. So, go out and grab those new TVs and other gadgets now.
  • Houses: Lovely spring weather and the upcoming summer vacations means lots of people are selling houses, which means its a great time to buy. And, while prices won’t hit rock bottom (that happens in the winter), you’ll have a much better selection if you start house hunting now.
  • Boots and Winter Wear: Barring a catastrophic change in weather patterns, most of the country should be snow-free, so all the leftover winter wear should be heavily discounted right now. You may not need it for a few months, but if you want to get a good price, grab that new winter coat while you can.
  • Cookware Kitchen Accessories: Graduation season is here, which means graduation-themed sales abound. Anything a college kid could need—like kitchen tools and cookware—are all discounted, so just pretend you’ve got a kit in college and stock up on your must-have kitchen tools now.
  • Vacuum Cleaners: If you haven’t done your spring cleaning yet (seriously, hurry up!), you can still pick up vacuum cleaners for a lower price as the spring draws to a close. New vacuums usually don’t come out until June, so you might be able to grab the last few off the shelf now.

June

  • Champagne: It may not be New Year’s Eve, but springtime is a popular season for champagne due to all the weddings happening around town. Even if you aren’t going to be using it this month, it’s a good time to take advantage of the competition between champagne makers and pick up a few bottles.
  • Dishware: Another benefit of wedding season, dishware is a popular gift for newly-hitched couples. Even if that doesn’t mean you, grab some up while it’s cheap. Coupled with the cookware still on sale for graduation season, you could really just take this opportunity to reboot your entire kitchen, geek-style.
  • Gym Memberships: No one remembers their new year’s resolutions anymore, and everyone’s exercising outside, so gyms are getting a bit desperate to retain members and gain new ones. If you’re looking at getting a membership, you can probably haggle yourself a good price now. Of course, you could always stay at home and get a workout with nothing but your body, even if you only take 20 minutes a day.
  • Paint: Summer is house painting season, so prices are pretty low. Whether you’re repainting your entire house or you just want to spice up a few boring rooms, now’s the perfect time to grab your paint colors for cheap.
  • Tools: Father’s day is on its way, which means all the stereotypical gifts are on sale—the top choice being power tools. I’d complain about gender stereotypes, but it’s hard to care when prices are this good. If you don’t have the perfectly stocked toolbox yet, take a few hundred bucks and ensure you never make a last-minute trip to the hardware store again.
  • Suits: The other big father’s day gift, of course, is suits. Grab one for your dad, grab one for your grandfather, or just grab one for yourself while prices are low. After all, no one looks better than they do in a suit. And if you still don’t know how to tie a tie to go with your suit, now’s a great time to learn.

We’ll be posting updates for you guys every month, so you’re aware of the deals going on all year round.
