Top Items to Purchase Each Month in 2024

You may save money on planned purchases by being aware of the things that are probably going to be on sale each month.

A fresh start is an excellent moment to take control of your own spending and create a plan for acquiring the items you desire.

Make a list of the major purchases you want to make this year and use our guidance to schedule each one appropriately to save money.


A new page on the calendar means a new beginning for sales. January offers a discount on certain items:

Linens and Bedding

In January, department stores have “white sales” for bedding and linen, offering steep discounts on towels and linens.

Exercise Apparatus

With good deals, retailers will accomplish their fitness goals. Sports goods stores should see a surge in sales of clothing and equipment for working out. (Tip: It’s usually less expensive to walk around the block than to buy a treadmill unless you’re certain you’ll use it.)

Televisions and Gadgets

Retailers typically offer discounts on TVs and other critical home theater equipment right before the Super Bowl.


February may be a better time to buy significant things for yourself rather than trinkets for your loved one, even though it’s the month of love and gift-giving. Options include:


Ahead of the Super Bowl, January and February see a spike in television sales. This is one of the best times to buy a TV, excluding Black Friday.

Winter-Related Goods

Retailers will be trying to clear out their cold-weather product inventory as winter draws to an end. Look for discounts on clothing and equipment for winter sports that you’ll require in the coming months.

Household Products

Anticipate sales of home goods by retailers on Presidents Day and the weekend before the holiday.

Left-over Chocolates

To save money, the astute couple celebrates Valentine’s Day one week later than usual. On February 15, retailers will be offering a discount on their leftover Valentine’s Day candy, so be sure to grab a heart-shaped box. Obtaining a dinner reservation will also be simpler after February 14.


March doesn’t have any significant shopping holidays, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any sales at all. Seek discounts on these items:

Accounting Software

Before Tax Day in April, retailers like to offer tax software at a discount in March.


Purchase your essential summer grilling supplies now to avoid price increases come summertime.

The Necessities for St. Patrick’s Day

Online merchants and department stores typically offer discounts on green apparel, party supplies, and jewelry around St. Patrick’s Day.

Vacuum Cleaners

Some stores are prepared to give early spring cleaners a discount on a Dyson, Shark, or other vacuum brand.


There are plenty of spring sales and discounts available in April, such as:


April is the true cleaning month, with even more vacuum-related sales to come. Check the websites of the manufacturers as well as department stores for discounts.

Items with a Tax Theme

Retailers and eateries attempt to ease the load of Tax Day each year by offering freebies and discounts on services like shredding paper. Look for these starting in mid-April.

Cosmetic Items

It’s time to dress to impress and head outside. This month is usually when Sephora has its spring sale. 

Sustainable Products

Look for retailer sales on eco-friendly products, like reusable bags and water bottles, clothing made from sustainable materials, and other “green” goods, in honor of Earth Day. Are you going to start composting this year? We are in favor of that.


Discounts from April give way to more in May. Here are some products you might want to purchase this month:

Spring Apparel

Spring clothing that has been hanging on racks for a month or two will be discounted by retailers by May 2024.


Black Friday, Labor Day, and Memorial Day are three of the largest blowout shopping days. May is Memorial Day month, so check big-box stores for deals on furniture and home décor.

Appliances for the Kitchen

Take advantage of the May sales to purchase compact kitchen appliances like blenders and coffee makers. These goods are usually offered during Memorial Day sales, and they’re excellent presents for impending summer weddings.


June has few days but a long list of sales. Among the wise purchases are:


During June, stock up on undergarments. At that time, Victoria’s Secret, for instance, is known to hold its well-known semiannual sale. The sale usually takes place in December as well.

Additional Semiannual Sales

Sales at many stores are known to peak at this point. Stores such as Bath & Body Works and Brooks Brothers have held semiannual sales in June in previous years.

Memberships in Gyms

If you decide to purchase a gym membership in the summer, make sure to haggle for the best price. When people are more likely to spend time outside, gyms might be eager to fill up their memberships.

Tools and Other Gifts for Dad

Many retailers will be offering discounts on a range of power tools, outdoor equipment, and men’s clothing in advance of Father’s Day. Historically, Boutiquemaman and Alizoni have offered discounts during this period.


Prices drop like crazy in July. Think of purchasing these:

Summertime Attire

Although the sun is still out, fewer people are buying summer clothing. Thus, stock up on flip-flops, tanks, and shorts while the stores still have them. But only purchase what is marked down. 

Items for July Fourth

Retailers enjoy a good cause for celebration. Sales of red, white, and blue merchandise, sporting goods, furniture, jewelry, and accessories for the backyard and barbecue are common in the days preceding Independence Day.

Personal Devices on the day of Prime Day

The dates of Amazon‘s Prime Day in 2023 were July 11 and 12, so you should probably anticipate the same dates in 2024. It’s essentially July’s version of Black Friday, with plenty of deals on electronics and other gadgets. It also forces rival retailers to compete with imitation merchandise.

School Materials

Although kids won’t want to think about summer ending just yet, in late July stores begin to offer school supplies on sale. You can avoid the August rush by shopping early for back-to-school supplies if you have your lists ready.


Invest in summer merchandise to bid summer adieu? Yes, that is correct. In August, keep an eye out for end-of-season clearance sales on:

Supplies for Back-to-School

When classes begin, it’s necessary to purchase both more expensive (calculators and laptops) and less expensive (notebooks and pencils). In general, you’ll have a better chance of finding a good deal the closer you buy to the start of the school year.

Backyard Goods

Take advantage of huge savings on lawnmowers and other seasonal outdoor furniture, such as grills, as summer comes to an end.

Bathing Suits

By August, there might not be many days for swimming, but that’s precisely why swimsuit clearance sales will soar. Get swimwear now for the upcoming year.

Shopping without Paying Taxes

The school year can be costly. However, many states offer a tax-free weekend to help with the purchase of approved necessities such as clothing, computers, school supplies, and other items. If yours does, make sure to verify the date and prepare your list.


It’s surprising how many great deals there are in September, with discounts on everything from pool toys to mattresses. Get these for fair prices:


September is a good month for mattress sales, every year. Department stores and mattress retailers typically offer deals during Labor Day promotions.


Usually in September, Apple releases the latest lineup of iPhones along with other products. Following the unveiling, the more established models typically see a price reduction. Around this time, check out used iPhones as well.


In the week before Labor Day, there should be a ton of amazing sales, including discounts on both large and small appliances.


Shops won’t leave you hanging in October. These product categories will see a lot of sales:

Patio Furniture

When the weather cools off, look forward to discounts on patio furniture and outdoor living goods. 


Stores receive their fall inventory in August and September, but if you don’t wait a few weeks, you’ll pay top dollar. It’s a great idea to get a new pair of jeans in October.


You have a better chance of finding a cheap bag of candy for trick-or-treaters the closer Halloween approaches.

Gifts for the Holidays

For the past two years, Amazon has hosted a shopping event in October that is similar to Prime Day. The multi-day event featured bargains comparable to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and it prompted retailers like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy to hold sales at similar times. Because of these things, the first part of October is now the best time to buy gifts or necessities for yourself.


The true Black Friday sales take place in November when prices on some of the most well-liked tech items drop to their lowest points. Anticipate deals of some kind from most retailers on almost every product category, not just on Black Friday but all through the month.


During Black Friday sales, electronics such as laptops, tablets, and TVs take center stage. Check for sales on activity trackers, smart speakers, and headphones as well.


Clothing catalogs must have their busiest month in November. Look for sales on the brands you like, and browse American Eagle, Gap, and Land’s End online to find unexpected discount codes.

Subscriptions for Streaming Services

November has turned into a fantastic month to join up a new streaming service as if you needed another password to remember. In the past, well-known content providers like Hulu and Paramount+ have provided substantial subscription savings during prolonged Black Friday sales.


In certain product categories, discounts don’t end at the end of the year. In December, keep an eye out for these items’ sale prices:


The late November Black Friday electronics sales will continue into the new month.

Small Appliances for the Kitchen

Dec. 2, 2024, is Cyber Monday. This is an excellent time to purchase an air fryer. NerdWallet tracked the costs of ten well-known items during each of 2023’s significant sales. On Cyber Monday, the air fryer, stand mixer, and coffee maker—the three kitchen appliances on our list—all saw price reductions.


Holiday toys are a popular gift, and as the season ends, retailers usually mark them down. Shop in December, but look on Black Friday.

Decorations for Christmas

Shop sales starting the day after Christmas to find deep discounts (often up to 50%) on ornaments, wrapping paper, artificial trees, decorations, and other seasonal items.
