These three short months of summer can often translate into big purchases. Before you know it, just planning our get-togethers, beach excursions, and family activities for the kids can add up to a whole lot of extra expenses. (Plus, of course, right around the corner will be the looming task of buying back-to-school items!)
So before you find yourself in the stores, and buying things you think you really need, consider if you can hold off on some purchases until the end of the summer.
Sure, you might have to forgo enjoying something new until next summer, but that just might save a lot of money. Ask yourself which is more important and whether you can avoid the instant gratification. And remember, when you wait for the deals, you’ll be able to purchase better quality material that lasts in the long run.
