Do you know what to buy in July? Do you know what you definitely should NOT buy in July?
One thing I’ve noticed over the past 6 years of deal blogging is that sales are typically cyclical.
This goes for food, clothing, furniture, vehicles and almost everything.
You can see my full list of yearly sales cycles here, but here’s a list of what you should/shouldn’t buy in July.
First off, July is National Ice Cream Month! Also National Fried Chicken Day (July 6th), National Cheesecake Day (July 30th).
