What to skip

Outdoor

You will see some deals on grills and other outdoor items, like camping gear, and patio furniture, but the deals will be better in late August.

Small appliances

We saw a plethora of small appliances on sale for Amazon Prime Day, so it might be a little while until those sales pop up again. A reliable time for things like blenders and Instapots is closer to the end of August or early September with Labor Day sales and kids heading to college.
