What to buy and not buy in June

Don't Waste Your Money

June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year, which means many people are shopping until 9:30 at night.

But before you beat the heat at the mall, we have a new report on what to buy and what not to buy in June.

Great...and Not-So-Great Shopping

The financial website DealNews.com says June is a great month for some things, but a terrible month to buy some other items.

And it says if you can just wait a few more weeks, you'll find some great buys on electronics.

DealNews says June brings:

       -Sales on summer clothing and Victoria Secret's semi-annual summer sale. As in lingerie.

       - Tools are marked down just in time for Father's Day gifts. Need a drill? Buy it the week before Father's Day during a sale.

        -Late June brings the first big sales on barbecue grills and patio furniture. Hint: Target and Walmart clear out their grill section around the 4th of July to make room for the back to school department. Watch for clearance sales.

       -June is a great time to book a Carribbean vacation. It's the start of hurricane season, so prices are now dropping.

What Not to Buy?

         -DealNews says hold off on Apple purchases: Updated iPhones, iPads, and Macbooks are coming very soon. When the new ones arrive, prices on older models will be slashed.

         -And hold off on laptops until late June or July: Prices will be cut dramatically for back to school. July is a great time to shop for laptops.

That way you don't waste your money.
