Things to Buy in September
Posted on Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 at 7:00 am
Savvy shoppers know that there are certain things that tend to have their annual sale in a particular month of the year. Plan ahead, and you can end up saving a lot of money on things that you want to buy. September offers a mixed bag of sales with some leftover summer items, the last of the back-to-school stuff, and a few things you might need for the fall or winter.
This is your last chance to stock up on Summer clothing before it sells out. Whatever is left should be at extremely low prices. The best way to get your money’s worth is to buy items that you know will still fit next summer – like sandals, beach towels, and beach hats. Is your family going to travel to somewhere warm during the winter holidays? Now is a good time to pick up new swimwear.
Sitting outside on patio furniture can be nice in the summer. Fewer people want to sit outside for long periods of time in the cooler fall weather. That being said, now is a good time to get new patio furniture for next year. The stores are looking to unload their stock at low prices. The best way to take advantage of these sales is if you already know exactly where you will store the patio furniture for the winter.
Did your child forget to give you his or her school supplies list? Have your kids already lost their pencil sharpeners? This is your last chance to buy more school supplies before the price goes back up. You may want to stock up on more paper, pencils, and pens to replace the ones your child runs out of at school.
Now is also a good time to shop for jeans. Clothing stores tend to have a lot of leftover jeans as their back-to-school sales come to an end. Buy a few more pairs now before the prices go back up. It is also a good time to take advantage of the sales on school uniforms.
September 29 is National Coffee Day. You can expect to see special deals and offers at your favorite coffee shop this month. There may also be some “freebies” offered to entice people to visit a coffee shop to celebrate National Coffee Day. September typically includes a lot of coupons for coffee. Bring those with on your next grocery shopping trip.
Where will your family be spending Thanksgiving, Christmas, or the other upcoming holidays? If you already know the answer to that question then it is time to purchase travel tickets. The price of plane tickets, and train tickets, will start to rise as we get closer to the holiday season.
