Is there anything better than getting stuff on sale? (Like, besides getting stuff for free, obviously.) No, there is not. Even if it’s just a little bit on sale, it’s so great to feel less guilty when you can be like “I mean, I didn’t need it, but it was on sale.” Anyway, the seasons greatly influence how stores price items, so there actually is a good time to buy all of the useless shit you don’t really need. Here are some of the best things that go on sale in the summer, as if you needed another excuse to buy stuff. Also, most of this stuff is pretty adultish, so you’re actually being really responsible by buying these things. Okay, mom?!?!
Furniture always goes on sale in July, because most furniture companies release new stuff in August. So now is prob a good time to scroll through your dream apartment board on Pinterest and stalk that love seat you’ve always wanted but never felt like sacrificing your going out funds for. Target, aka the Holy Land, is having a huge furniture sale right now. Go, go, go!
Obviously, swimwear is on sale because we’re already a few weeks into July and everyone’s realizing they didn’t get that summer body they’ve been planning since they didn’t get in shape last year. Walk into any shop that sells swimwear and chances are, it’s going to be on sale. (Unless it’s a brand that strictly sells swimwear. They’re a little shadier with their sales.)
Even if you’re not going back to college this year (moment of silence for the messiest, best four–or more–years of your life), you can benefit from the fact that linens always go on sale at this point in the summer to target back to school shoppers. West Elm is currently having a pretty bomb sale, so now you can finally get that boujee bedding you’ve always wanted.
Again, you can go back to school shopping even if you’re not going back to school. You just can’t really go to any shitty frat parties or go out on a weeknight without feeling hungover for the following two days. Anyway, office supplies are always on sale this time of year, so maybe it’s time to think about getting your shit together. (Notice that I said think about and not actually do. Buying a planner is the first step. Actually using it can come like, way later.)
Honestly, just be like Martha Stewart this month. Except, don’t go to jail. Or do. I’m not in control of your life. Urban Outfitters is having a sale on all of their apartment stuff, so you can finally get that tapestry or print to create the perfect Instagram spot.
