July 4th is the most hallowed of all American holidays -- a celebration of the day we published one of one of the rudiments of modern democracy, the Declaration of Independence. Traditionally, we celebrate with backyard BBQs and saving money by shopping for holiday sales. And while the cookouts might be a little subdued this year as we try to , today is the day to take advantage of sales on everything from electronics to housewares.

Whether you're looking for bedding and mattresses (the Fourth of July is always a good holiday for), appliances or electronics, you'll find a few things to whet your appetite here. And if you miss the action today, fear not: Many of these sales continue tomorrow and into next week. We'll update this article to reflect the deals that are still running for the next few days.
