August brings the end of summer and thoughts of a new school year with approaching fall weather. As with every month, there are some items you will want to be on the lookout for as they will be listed at their best yearly price! There will also be certain products you will want to leave on your list to purchase at another time, when their pricing will be more favorable. Be sure to browse this list so that you know what is best to buy in August!

What To Buy:

Back to School Items – Backpacks, school supplies and dorm items will be at their lowest sale prices of the year! Be sure to snag the savings while you can and grab those deals when they hit the shelves! Stock up now for the entire year!

Summer Clothing – Summer is nearing it’s end and we will no longer want to be buying shorts and tank tops. It addition, the stores need to make way for fall and winter items. Scan your local stores for the seasonal markdowns!

Patio Furniture – Again, as this season ends, the prices on outdoor items will drop. Checkout the outdoor sections to grab any deep discounts on next years new patio set!

Laptops – These will be included in the Back To School sales. Keep an eye out for the best price to fit your budget!

Travel – Looking for a last minute getaway!? End of summer and early fall have been known as some of the best times of year to snag great savings! Hotel rates drop, airfare is discounted and even gas prices can fall.

Wine – In the mood for a drink? Last years wine will go on sale to create space for the new year’s product. Be sure to check it out!

Do Not Buy:

Grills – Hold off until next month in September to grab them at their deepest discount!

TV’s – Wait for fall, specifically Black Friday to score your best TV deal.

Mattresses – It is best to find a sale for these during Labor Day Weekend!

Fall Clothing – Wait until closer to the Holidays to grab the biggest discounts on fall styles.

Appliances – Shop in September, as the new models will be put out, making for a sweet deal on last years appliances!
