Things To Buy In the Month of July

July is the best time to buy many different things. I have included a list of the top 7 items to buy in the month of July. (Don't forget the 4th of July sales!)

1. Furniture- Furniture is released in August and February, so during the month of July, furniture stores are trying to clear floor space for the new inventory.
2. Broadway tickets- July is a slow month in New York City. If you are visiting New York, it might be great time to buy some tickets online or stop by the TIXS booth in Times Square.
3. Suits- Spring fashions are being cleared out. Buy suits that will work throughout all seasons and you will be good to go.
4. Paint- Demand is low for paint. Who wants to paint during the month of July???
5. Butter- Prices are normally best for butter during June and July, however rumor has it dairy prices will continue to go up. But keep your eyes open when you head to the grocery store.
6. Home Decor
7. Soda, Beer, and Condiments- Independence Day sales are great for these items. Stock up now, as Coke has recently announced prices will be increasing!

Great July 4th Sales!

Thanks to Baby Cheapskate for this list.

Georgia has new booster seat laws.

Starting Friday 7/1/2011, Instead of graduating from their booster seat at age 6, all children under age 8 must use an approved booster seat or car seat while riding in passenger automobiles, vans, and pickup trucks. Exceptions: children under age 8 who are taller than 4’9″ as well as those children who have a physical or medical condition that prevents restraining them as required by law. Your first offense = $50 fine and one point. Second offense = $100 and two points. It’s likely cheaper to buy it than risk it, and it’s for the kids’ safety.

You can buy a cheap seat at Target or Walmart for around $20. There really is no reason to not have your child in a car seat or a booster seat. If they complain, oh well, you are doing your job as a parent!

The Great American Trailer Park Musical

Last weekend, the hubby and I had a date night. We got tickets for The Great American Trailer Park Musical at Onstage Atlanta.

It was such a fun play to be at that I thought I should share it with you all. I am not one to sit for 2 hours without doing something so usually by the end of the play I am ready to be gone. But this play was hilarious. For days both the hubs and I have been walking around signing the songs in the musical.

So if you have a chance, check out

A challenge and a giveaway!

We are going on vacation at the end of next month! We were out of town we will be eating out the whole four days, so we decided to do a challenge for the rest of this month until the end of July. We are going to eat through the stockpile of food we have. No grocery shopping (besides milk for the munchkin and fresh fruit and veggies!). I told my husband he has to go to the grocery store so I won't be tempted to buy more stuff.

So here are the giveaway details: I am giving away my coupon stash of coupons that expire during the month of July. I have a ton of coupons. So if anyone wants them comment on this post and then next Friday, July 1st I will choose a winner! There are probably about 75-100 coupons available!!
