A Year’s Worth of Sales


Another great article from the January/February issue of HGTV Magazine details what household items are marked down throughout the year.

Although we’ve missed January (fitness equipment, linens, and paint), here are the sales to watch out for during 2014 according to author Kelly Tagore:

February: cameras; televisions

March: garden and lawn care; luggage

April: vacuum cleaners; home accessories

May: outdoor grills; annual flowers and vegetables; refrigerators

June: dishware, flatware, and stemware; tools

July: paint; mattresses

August: computers; perennials and shrubs

September: furniture; outdoor furnishings

October: cookware; camping and outdoor gear

November: new cars; appliances

December: air conditioners; wall-to-wall carpeting

Some items have multiple discount periods during the year (e.g., tools are marked down for both Father’s Day and the winter holidays), but the rule of thumb is to shop at the beginning of a peak season, when retailers are competing for business and everything is in stock, and again well after the peak when retailers are clearing inventory or are preparing for new models.
