Earnings season turns its focus to retail this week.

Dow stocks Home Depot and Walmart join Lowe's, Macy's and Kohl's with reports out in the next few days. Those releases will shine a light on consumer spending during the pandemic.

"If you look at the places where [consumers] are spending money, we would put those into two big themes — cheap and easy. So, things that are lower cost because consumers are very concerned about spending right now, and things that can be easily delivered to them without them having to go out to stores," Gina Sanchez, CEO of Chantico Global and chief market strategist for Lido Advisors, told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Monday.

E-commerce sales have soared during the pandemic. Online spending increased by nearly 32% in the second quarter from the first three months in the year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
