Christmas in July! Retailers are begging you to buy it.
July is almost my favorite time of year. Retailers are giving it away! The girls and I went shopping yesterday, bought some early school clothes and a few items they needed. It’s Christmas in July. Justice for Girls has 40% storewide. JCpenny, Target, Macy’s kids, Old Navy, and many, many others are discounting already on sale merchandise.
Around our house we are learning to stretch our dollars further. As millions of Americans are having to do the same, I thought you might like a few shopping tips I learned yesterday. You can print coupons online before you go. I printed several. Retailers are begging consumers to buy. I didn’t have a coupon at one store so I told the clerk, I couldn’t get your coupon to print correctly (mentioned the website by name of course) and asked if they had any in the store. Within 5 minutes, I saved 20% of the total order by her simply asking her manager. I was given a very sweet apology for my printing troubles, and 20% left in my pocket! Retailers are convinced summer is over, and before stocking up for back to school and holiday items, they need to liquidate what they haven’t sold. We still have several months of hot and humit weather. Shorts and short sleeve t-shirts, blouses and tanks are perfect to start school. Home goods and outdoor living items are also on major clearance in many of the large chains. I am thinking now is a good time to start holiday shopping. I finally had to come home because I couldn’t affod to save anymore money! Fun, Fun Day with the girls.
Here’s a site I found extremely helpful yesterday.
