Did you know that there are different things on sale each month of the year?
A while back I put together a Month to Month Shopping Guide that lists the best items to buy each month to save money!
Here I am highlighting the best items to buy this month!
September is a great time to still buy school supplies, even after school starts.
Labor Day is also probably the best time for some items like mattresses until the holiday sales come.
There are also special days to note which could mean discounts!
National Cheese Pizza Day is September 5th, and National Pepperoni Pizza Day is September 20th, so watch for pizza deals.
National Guacamole Day is September 16th, National Cheeseburger Day is September 18th, National Ice Cream Cone Day is September 22nd, and National Pancake Day is September 26th – so more food deals to watch out for!
And National COFFEE Day is September 29th! There are always some good coffee deals and freebies.
September is the best time to buy:
-Perennials, shrubs and trees – Greenery at this time of year can’t be beat, according to Consumer Reports
-Bicycles – deals start now and run through Fall
-Halloween candy, decorations, costumes show up in stores
-Lawn mowers – prices get trimmed to create space for snowblowers and other winter gear
-Apple products like the iPhone and watches as new models are revealed
-Appliances (like washers, dryers, stoves) as new models are hitting showrooms soon
-Airfare for the winter holidays is cheaper now
-Cars: New models hit the showroom floor so older vehicles are the ones to buy
What NOT to Buy Right Now:
Large TVs. Prices aren’t the best. Wait until late November for the Black Friday deals if you can.
Seasonal produce on sale now:
Acorn squash, apples, beets, butternut squash, cantaloupe, cauliflower, eggplant, figs, grapes, green beans, lettuce, mangoes, mushrooms, okra, peppers, persimmons, pomegranates, pumpkins, spinach, sweet potatoes, Swiss chard, tomatoes.
