It's now June, which means you've probably got people to buy for this month, like dads, grads, and newlyweds. If you're looking to save some money, here's a quick guide on what you should buy and what you should skip in June.

The three things you should buy are:

  1. Movie tickets. In the summer, lots of movie theaters offer programs that let kids see movies at discounted prices.
  2. Swimwear and lingerie. Victoria's Secret holds its semiannual sale in January and June, and lots of other retailers follow their lead.
  3. Gym memberships. Gyms are more eager for sign-ups at the beginning of summer, so you might be able to negotiate a better deal.

The two things you should definitely skip are grills and designer clothing. Grills are in higher demand in the summer so the prices will be higher right now. Clothing sales usually start in July, so just wait a month.
