There is a bit of a sales lull between back-to-school season and the start of great holiday sales, but if you keep your eyes open, you will find some great deals in October.
Back-to-school sales are done so any jeans leftover usually go on sale now. Buy the next size up for those growing kids, and stock up on any new jeans you may need as the weather turns colder.
The September patio sales on furniture, mowers and grills continue into October. Now is also a good time to get hardy perennials for the garden so they can become established over the winter.
Summer sporting goods
The close of summer sports season brings sales on baseball and golf gear. October is also the time of year for finding sales on camping gear such as tents or sleeping bags.
Cookware and kitchen accessories
Have you been thinking of getting a new set of pots and pans? Watch prices now as October and early November have some of the best prices of the year on cookware. I scored a set of cookware similar to this one during a late October sale and they are awesome. Want a new mixer for all the sweet treats or bread? A roasting pan for your turkey?
Pro tip: check the price history and set a price watch at CamelCamelCamel.
