5 Things to Buy in October

Pumpkin Flavored Everything
October is the month where coffee shops sell pumpkin spiced coffee, pumpkin spiced tea, and pastries that contain pumpkin (or pumpkin seeds). This year, you can buy Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, Pumpkin Spice Frosted Mini-Wheats, and Pumpkin Spice Quaker Instant Oatmeal. Now is the time to learn how to prepare and roast a pumpkin.

These special treats are seasonal. If you love them, now is the time to indulge. You probably won’t be able to get them as easily in November as you can now.

Jeans and Clearance Clothing
October is a great month to buy jeans. Clothing stores stock up on jeans right before the back to school sales start. By October, they are ready to get rid of whatever jeans are leftover. (They need that space for the Christmas stock that is already piling up in their stock rooms). You might find jeans at a lower price now than what they were selling for in August.

In addition, there will be clearance sales on clothing happening in October. Stores want to get rid of their fall clothing line now (to make room for the winter clothing line). Some stores might have summer clothing leftover. Be sure the check the clearance racks. You may find some great deals!

Do you need to buy holiday gifts for the children in your family? October is a good month to start shopping for toys. There might be sales on the toys that are related to the summer blockbuster movies. The store you want to shop at may offer coupons for those toys. Or, they might offer a discount through the store’s app. It can’t hurt to take a look at what deals they are offering on toys.

Gardening Supplies
In many parts of the United States, the weather is getting to cold for gardening. Plants don’t grow very well in the winter weather that is just around the corner. You can buy some nice gardening supplies in October for less money than they were selling for in April. Plan ahead for next year by purchasing replacements for gardening tools that wore out in the springtime.

Halloween Costumes
The closer we get to Halloween, the more the Halloween costumes drop in price. Plan ahead for next year and purchase a new Halloween costume now. You can save money by waiting until the last minute to buy the makeup and accessories that go with this year’s Halloween costume. For the best deals, try the pop-up Halloween stores that need to move out by the end of October.

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.
