July 4th came and went with a bang -- lots of bangs, in fact. In my neighborhood, there were so many fireworks that I felt bad for every dog that spent the evening cowering under a bed. Traditionally, we celebrate the fourth with backyard BBQs and saving money by shopping for holiday sales. And while the cookouts were a little subdued this year as we continued to maintain our social distance, there were plenty of sales to mark the day. And the good news is that you can still save on many of those sales, which are are continuing through the week.
We've rounded up the best sales and deals that are still live and listed them below. Whether you're looking for bedding and mattresses (the Fourth of July is always a good holiday for mattress sales), appliances or electronics, you'll find a few things to whet your appetite here. We'll continue to update this article to reflect the deals that are still running for the next few days.
