October–What’s on sale? Get ready for next Summer!
Each month of the year has special items on sale. You need to be a savvy shopper in order to snag the best deals, but you can get some great things for a lot less. I always shop for the next year after the holidays, end of the seasons, and clearance shop. It saves my family a lot of money over the course of year. It does take some planning ahead and getting used to, but you can do it!!
Large appliances–negotiate to get the best price on last year’s model before the holiday craze hits.
Bridal registry items are often 50% off so stock up now while the price is low so you are ready next year with presents you won’t have to pay full price for them.
Summer inventory like pool items, beach items, air conditoners, garden and camping items. (We are looking for a great deal on air conditioners.)
Fire pits are also on roll back at Wal-Mart, I saw them yesterday. Don’t forget those summer games like Redneck Golf, Bocce ball and other yard games are also on clearance at this time as well.
Grocery items like Pizza, popcorn, seafood, all on sale. October is National Pizza month as well as Popcorn-popping month and Seafood month. Stock up on those items to last you a good few months. My rule of thumb is 6 months of items when the price is at it’s lowest.
Clothing items for summer are now on mark down you need to snag them up for next year. Guess about a size for each child you have and pick them up entire summer outfits for just a few dollars. Shirts and things also make great presents for nieces/nephews, grandchildren and etc.
