CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Planning a vacation at the beach this summer? Looking to spruce up your backyard or replace an old sofa? You can find lots of amazing discounts this month! Consumer Reports Senior Project Editor Mandy Walker told us what the best things are in July.
Many items are discounted toward the end of a season. With fall on the horizon (in the view of retailers, anyway), you’ll find to find great deals on outdoor furniture.
Furniture is on sale this month because stores need to make way for new lines that will arrive later this summer that were shown at the spring High Point Furniture Market. Some well-made sets are resonably priced, but you do have to know what to look for. For example, plastic resin is a good choice for poolside or in salt air, but strong winds can knock lightweight pieces around so choose sturdy chairs, and ones that are wider, allowing guests to get comfortable.
As temperatures soar, you’ll find good deals on swimsuits (and fetching caps). But because it’s the end of the swimsuit season for retailers, selection may suffer. Shopping at the right time can help save even more.
The right camcorder features are important, whether you’re considering a standard definition or high-def model. If you want better quality and more options, consider a full-size model. If you need a smaller, more portable model-or if you’re an athlete or adventurer who loves to capture footage like the fellow at right-then consider an action cam.
