June Best Buys

June often signals the official start to summer and with summer comes the need for fresh food, inexpensive shopping and lots of entertainment. Here is what you should buy to optimize your purchasing power all while sticking to a budget.


Fresh Produce

With summer weather also comes in-season fruits and vegetables. Produce such as corn, zucchini, strawberries, cherries, and watermelon are all in season and in abundance making for cheap prices and great deals. Be sure to check out your local grocer for prices and deals.


Movie Tickets

Nothing describes June like the start of summer vacation. And with summer vacation comes the need for fun and cheap entertainment for the children. Thankfully many movie theaters offer summer discounts and deals for kids movies all summer long. It is best to purchase these programs and package deals in June to ensure you get the most use out of them.  

Harkins Theatres offers a Summer Movie Fun program. Children enjoy a movie a week for 10 weeks with each movie costing $1 per film.

AMC Theatres offers a Summer Movie Camp. Every Wednesday children can enjoy a movie and KidsPack for $4.

Regal Movies offers a Summer Movie Express Series in which children can enjoy $1 movie tickets every Tuesday and Wednesday.



An essential item that often breaks the budget does not have to in June. Thanks to Victoria’s Secret semi-annual sale, you can score great deals ranging from up to 60 percent off. This sale typically kicks off early to mid-June. Clearance items can be purchased for as low as $3.99.

The company’s success has also spurred other lingerie brands to follow suit and offer sales this month as well. Stores such as Bare Necessities and Frederick’s of Hollywood also have deals and sales this month.


Father’s Day Gifts

June falls perfectly in between big holidays such as Memorial Day and Independence Day but that does not mean there is nothing to celebrate and shop for. Father’s Day falls in the middle of the month and many sales on typical dad items can be found for cheap. Items such as tools and hardware and outdoor items can be found on sale at stores such as Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bass Pro Shops, Lowes and Home Depot.


Gym Memberships

Remember that New Year’s resolution you made to purchase a gym membership and workout? Well, it is still not too late to begin! The month of June is a good time of year to purchase a gym membership as resolutions begin to dwindle and gym’s begin enticing new audiences. Due to good outdoor weather and vacation plans, gyms tend to see a decline in membership in the month of June. This makes them all the more likely to offer discounted memberships or other special deals.
