Everybody needs some things, but there are months when you shouldn’t purchase certain items. It’s the end of the spring season, Father’s Day is approaching, and schools are out for summer. To make sure shoppers score the best deals on all their essentials this month, Offers.com’s deal and savings experts share what to buy (and what not to buy) in June.

Listed below are things North Carolina shoppers and beyond should snag quick or leave on the shelves. For the most up-to-date list of what to buy in June, make sure to check out Offers.com’s full guide here.

  • What to Buy in June

  • Spring Clothing

    As the season draws to a close, many stores have already stocked their displays with summer styles and buried remaining spring apparel in the clearance section. Venture back to the sale aisle, and you may land deals of up to 50% off or more on spring fashions.

  • Cookware and Cutlery

    Falling at the beginning of the wedding season, June holds solid deals on kitchen gear and other typical wedding gifts. Eager to catch the eye of gift-giving shoppers, stores often discount cookware and cutlery by up to 70%.

  • Outdoor Gear

    Keep an eye out for sales on patio furniture and other outdoor must-haves this month!

  • What Not to Buy in June

  • Air Conditioners

    The higher the temperature rises, the fewer incentives retailers have to discount air conditioners. If you need to replace your AC, you may have to pay full price or invest in a trusty fan.

  • Grills

    Now that barbecue season has kicked off, you may be itching to upgrade your grill, or buy a new one for garden parties. Unfortunately, many other shoppers are eager to upgrade their grills as well, and the increase in demand means higher prices.

  • Mattresses

    Unlike other major holidays, Father’s Day underwhelms mattress sales. To nab the best deal on a mattress, shop during holidays like Labor Day, President’s Day, and Memorial Day.

  • Summer Apparel

    By the official start of summer, stores have already rolled out the season’s trendiest styles. Postpone your shopping spree until the Fourth of July, when many retailers discount summer styles. Better yet, hold off until late summer or early fall (back-to-school season) when summer apparel prices fall by up to 75%.
