One simple way to save money on the things you need to buy is to purchase them when they go on sale. You can get what you need without having to pay full price. Here are some of the best things to buy in August.

Summer Clothing
Stores that sell clothing tend to have summer clearance sales in August. They need to move out the shorts, sundresses, and tank tops and use that space for the incoming Back to School clothing. If you live in a state that is likely to have warm weather through September, now is the best time to take advantage of the summer clearance sales.

If you live in a state that says warm enough for you to hit the beach or splash around in your swimming pool all year round, you may need some extra swimsuits. Buy them now and stock up while they are at the lowest price of the year.

Does your state experience very cold winter weather? You might need some extra swimwear if you plan on traveling to places where the weather is warm during the upcoming holiday season. Do your relatives live where the weather stays warm? Are you going on a holiday cruise? Plan ahead and buy extra swimwear.

Back to School Supplies
Your kids are going to need some new school supplies for the upcoming school year. Before you shop, take the time to compare the back to school supplies sales at several stores. Figure out which one has the best deals, and do your shopping there.

Some parents like to stock up on extra school supplies while the Back to School sales are happening. Doing so can save you money later, when your kids need more paper, pencils, or other supplies. Buy now – and avoid paying full price for the same stuff later.

Early Labor Day Sales
Labor Day is often the last weekend of August, but sometimes happens on the first week of September. There will be plenty of Labor Day Sales happening not only on that weekend, but also during the week before. Nearly every store will have their own Labor Day Sale. Have you been planning to make a somewhat expensive purchase? Consider waiting until the thing you want goes on sale at the end of August.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
