Retail therapy is great but the guilt when you go overboard is real. Lucky for you, timing your shopping with the year’s biggest sales days allows you to have your cake and eat it too. We’ve listed major 2021 sales days that you shouldn’t miss out on this year.

New Year sales: These usually run through the first two weeks of January and is a great way to spend your Christmas bonus.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Stock up on beauty essentials and cosmetics. Many retailers offer attractive discounts on great products to clear up shelf space.

Presidents’ Day: This is the only time in the whole year that you’ll get a great price on mattresses. Sales last through the long weekend.

Easter sales: Apart from candy, treat baskets, and Easter-themed gifts, the week leading up to Easter Sunday is great for shopping the latest spring fashion at a few select department stores.

Memorial Day: Scour the market for deals on a range of home appliances. 

Fathers Day: Head to home improvement stores for deals on grills and home improvement tools. You don’t have to give all of them to your dad either.

Fourth of July: This year, this holiday is on a Saturday which translates to a weekend worth of irresistible sales.

Amazon Prime Day: This day is the Black Friday of July sales. Retailers offer deep discounts on a range of products in tech.

Tax-free weekends and Labor Day: August and September have back-to-school season sales, which are great for saving money on clothing, stationery, and school supplies. If you live in a state that offers tax-free weekends, you can purchase a range of items without a sales tax. If not, scour the stores for discounts on Labor Day in September.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday: Cyber Monday is on the last day of November this year which is a great time to shop for gifts, tech, and clothing for the holiday season.
