The Best Things to Buy in August
Posted on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 at 7:00 am
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.
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.
