Savings Guide- What to Buy in October
Brr! Do you feel that? Summer is definitely over, especially in the evenings! October may be a great time to do some shopping, though, for seasonal items! Here are some things you should be buying in October to make sure you get the best prices of the year!
What to Buy in October
Back to school stuff– While the sales on pencils and glue might be long over, you can often find amazing sales on backpacks and lunch bags. Lately, I have seen then up to 80% off! This means you can get a backpack for next year for less than $5. Take advantage of that!
Outdoor gear– Patio furniture and BBQs are on final clearance at the beginning of this month and that means huge savings. You may even be able to get some great deals on air conditioners if stores have any left.
Games and some toys– The holidays seem to arrive earlier and earlier every year and in October, you can start to see some sales on board games and some toys. Keep your eyes peeled for some great deals before Black Friday even gets here!
Jeans– Typically, you wouldn’t think that jeans would be on sale as retailers get ready for the cooler weather, but often in October, there is a clearing out of the few they held onto their racks during the summer and last season’s styles as well as the overstock from back-to-school to make room for this season’s. Jeans are kind of universal, though, most styles are still good for years to come.
Appliances– At the end of October, you may see some appliances go on sale in preparation for Veteran’s Day sales.
Car care stuff– Since most people are only super meticulous about car care in the warmer months, many stores will have sales on their overstock. Look for deals on polish, tire cleaner and even car air fresheners.
Groceries to Buy in October
Baking items– As the Holidays get closer and the weather gets cooler, it’s the kick-off to baking season and many stores will have deals on flour, sugar, baking soda/powder and more.
National Pork Month– October is full of great deals on all things pork from sausage, to ham and everyone’s favorite, bacon.
Here are the seasonal produce deals:
Pumpkins and squash, cranberries, apples of all kinds, broccoli, spinach, cabbage, leeks and root vegetables like turnips, potatoes and rutabagas.
