While Memorial Day was an unofficial summer kick-off of sorts, summer truly kicks off in June. And our list of things you should stock up on in June reflects the warmer weather, summer break, and Father's Day.

Father's Day sales have already started as of June 1. You can expect over 50% off on select tools, personal care, and suits. Plus, we've seen sales on Yeti coolers, Solo Stoves and more in June. Get your home summer ready with summer scents during the Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual Sale and the Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale. We're already seeing up to 75% off with items under $2 in both sales.

You'll also want to stock up this month on summer break essentials like Pedialyte to keep kids hydrated, Hot Pockets, frozen pizzas, and more. For more smart shopping tips and savings hacks, text HACKS to 57299, and be sure to download the Krazy Coupon Lady app.

Candles & Home Fragrance

Stock up in June on candles, hand soaps, and more home fragrances during the semi-annual sales at Bath & Body Works and Yankee Candle. You should aim to get at least 75% off in both sales. 

Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale

This sale happens twice annually — once in the summer and once in the winter. The summer Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale starts tomorrow, May 31, 2024, for rewards members. And on Monday, June 1, it kicks off for everyone. We expect it to last through early July.

Here are the stock-up prices you should look for:

  • Hand soaps as low as $1.98

  • Wallflower refills as low as $1.98

  • 3-wick candles as low as $6.37

  • Extra 20% off entire online purchase flash promos

Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale

The Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale has bounced around over the years, it’s typically timed with Memorial Day weekend. This year, as we expected, it started on Friday, May 24, 2024. This sale usually lasts around three weeks, making the best deals — and biggest markdowns — happen in late May to early June.

Look for these stock-up prices:

  • Wax melts from $0.56

  • $5.76 small tumbler candles

  • Perfect Pillar medium-sized candles from $10.35

  • Large jar candles at $15 each

Tip: You can also find sales and markdowns through an authorized retailer like Macy’s or Kohl’s during this same timeframe.

Dove Men+Care Products

With Father's Day around the corner, we mentioned that you'd see deals on men's personal care items. True to our prediction, we've got a stock-up offer to save you $10 when you buy three Dove Men+Care products at Kroger.

All you'll have to do is grab your three favorite Dove Men+Care products and you'll save $5 instantly when you use your Kroger Plus Shopper's Card. Plus, you'll get another $5 off when you clip and use a manufacturer coupon. This deal is great for dads, but also could be used to stock up early on back-to-school essentials.

Father’s Day Deals and Sales

Most retailers have Father’s Day deals in June and you’ll find discounts for Dad on personalized gifts, tools, apparel, and more. Some of our favorite sales to shop for Father’s Day are at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Lowe’s, and Amazon.

Here’s what you can expect for Father’s Day deals:

  • Cordless Drills — Up to 40% off at Lowe’s and Home Depot

  • Yeti Coolers — 20% off at Dick’s Sporting Goods and Moosejaw

These sales typically begin the first weekend in June. Start looking for deals this year on Saturday, June 1, 2024.

Swimwear, Undies, & Bras

The Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale is actually the best time to stock up on new undies and bras. Black Friday discounts usually hover around 40% – 50%, but the Semi-Annual Sale discounts can reach up to 80%. I’m talking $12 bras and under $10 swim pieces.

The semi-annual sale starts Wednesday, June 12, 2024.

Here are the prices to watch for. And if they drop this low, pounce.

  • 80% off swim ($3.99 - $9.99)

  • 77% off bras ($7.99 - $16.99)

  • 72% off panties ($2.99 - $5.99)

  • 60% - 65% off sweats and robes ($17.99 - $29.99)


The Semi-Annual Target Toy Sale (aka the Target Toy Clearance) is one of the best times to stock up on toys. It happens once in late December and again in mid-June. We predict the sale to start on or around June 18, 2024. Expect significant discounts of up to 70% on a wide range of toys, including popular brands like Nerf, Barbie, and LEGO.

Another perk of this sale? Other retailers join in to compete. You’ll find toy deals on Amazon, clearance toys at Walmart, and even at Macy’s — so you can stock up in June and start your holiday stockpile.

Fourth of July Sales

Near the end of the month, you’ll start to see Fourth of July deals popping up. It’s a great time to shop for coolers, portable grills, and grocery deals for the upcoming cookout. 

Home Depot: June 27 (Predicted)

Lowes: June 20 (Predicted)

Fourth of July Supplies

We expect you’ll see a majority of sales and ads for Fourth of July supplies the week of June 23.

  • Portable grills — Up to 60% off

  • Coolers and insulated drink bags — Up to 50% off

  • Soda and beverages — Up to 50% off

We predict Amazon Prime Day will run July 9 - 10, 2024. For 48 hours, you’ll find deals on Amazon devices, apparel, electronics, home appliances, gift cards, beauty, and more. Whew! Start building your carts in June and watch for price drops in early July. 

Black Friday in July.

Along with Prime Day, we’ll see several big-name retailers host Black Friday in July sales. Expect Walmart+ Week, Target's Circle Week in July, and Kohl's Summer Cyber Deals. Other stores like JCPenney and Macy’s officially named their sales “Black Friday in July.” 

School and office supplies. 

Back-to-school sales kick off in July and it’s the best time to stock up for the year on notebooks, pencils, pens, and even home office supplies.
