Okay, I know what your thinking, “Why should I buy a bathing suit in the middle of July?” Frist off, let’s not be dramatic. You still have over a month and a half of summer. There’s still plenty of time to head to the beach or sit by the pool. Plus, if you’re a cheapskate, you also know that July is the best month of the year to buy swimwear. This is the month when stores like J. Crew, Victoria’s Secret and Nordstrom start marking down their inventory, meaning you can get some major deals. Even designer swimsuits are dirt cheap. If you don’t have any more beach trips planned, stock up now and use all the new suits as motivation to maintain your weight until next year. Solid logic, right?
