It's the end of summer over here and closer to starting school already. Over here in Arizona we start school the first week of August which means us teachers are back the last week of July. My sweet summer always feels so short but this is also my favorite time of year because there are sales galore that get me ready for going back to school, and now of course with a little in preschool I get to do the same for her! Now if I'm being honest of course a lot of these items aren't necessarily for "back to school" but it is the time of year where I like to refresh and buy new things that we are looking for. I have stopped with buying it just because it is on sale, and now do the whole hold out for what you want until it goes on sale lifestyle now.

I'm sure you're aware by now butPrime Day is July 12-13th this year and if you didn't know many other stores have started competed with them and offering similar sales and price matching. I love this especially when Target does it because I also have a red card and get 5% off. Also if you haven't already installed Rakuten, it will also help price match for you to find you a lower price if it's available!
Now speaking of Prime Day, after a little research I saw that Amazon will not only be doing Prime day this year but also they will be doing a Q4 sale in the fall (article here) so I am thinking we will see even more mark downs then. My biggest suggestion for Prime day is to create a watchlist and see if anything goes on the lightning deals. Often times I have quickly searched and found the sale or deal isn't as great as it looks so I just keep it in my watchlist to see if it goes down even more.

Target is having a sale right now that is live until July 13th - again see how they're trying to compete with Prime Day? I'll try to update their deals if they change them daily but here is a list of what sales they have going on right now.
Beats Studio3 Headphones - My husband has these and loves them. Normally $349.99 on sale for $174.99
KitchenAid Stand Mixer - I have had mine for 6 years and am obsessed. I use mine so often ranging from grinding meat, slicing vegetables, and baking of course. Normally $449.99 on sale for $279.99
Instant Pot - Another staple in our house (we snagged ours prime week at target last time), we love it for cooking rice because it makes it so easy, but of course there are tons of uses for it in our household ranging from full meals, to soups, to boiled eggs. Normally $129.99 on sale for $69.99
Up to 40% off kitchen items
I have had my eye on an air fryer and I think I might finally make the purchase this year. Right now there is a 7 quart air fryer on sale for $70, normally $150. I have been wanting to try it and with multiple friends recommending them I think it will be the next appliance item I buy.
If you are on the search for a new blender I highly recommend the Ninja System. We have had this system for a few years now and I love it. It works so well, normally $200 on sale for $150.
I bought an espresso machine 2 years ago and it's safe to say I'm obsessed. Now my machine is not cheap, it's around $600 (this is mine) but worth every penny imo. but there is a cute Nespresso on sale, normally $240 and on sale for $168. My only problem with these are how wasteful they are so I would recommend looking into the recycling program for their pods or getting a reusable one! We do this for our Keurig because I think pods are super wasteful and just not eco friendly.
My fave frother is also on sale for $13 instead of $26, but Amazon tends to also have these on sale too so I'll keep an eye out!
Up to 50% off toys and games
We love a good board game and you can find some great ones on sale - they tend to be more expensive these days! We just snagged Forbidden Bridge (normally $26, on sale for $13) and although it says 7+ our three year old already loves it.
50% select womens clothing, swim, shoes & accessories
50% off select kids, toddler, and baby clothing and more
50% off select mens clothing and more
Okay, now back to Prime Day, I won't get into too many of the sales because there are too many to keep up with and of course they have been doing early sales but here are a few of the things that I am looking for that I think the sale will be worth it. Here is the link for my wish list/watch list if you're interested in seeing what I am looking for and how I do it and here are myidea lists of products I have purchased or have my eye on as well!
