Independence Day sales are long gone and Labor Day is around the corner, but you can still pick up great bargains. Here is what to buy and what to skip in August.
Buy: Back-to-school supplies
Back-to-school season is going strong. Cash in on great deals before the season draws to a close with the start of the school year at the end of the month. Look for weekly deals on all kinds of school and office supplies at big-box stores, pharmacies and retailers alike.
Skip: Amazon devices
Amazon just hosted its Prime Day sale, so don’t expect to find any great prices on Amazon devices this month. Wait for Black Friday to shop for a new Kindle, Echo device and more.
Buy: Summer apparel
Expect to find prices on hot-weather wear dropping lower as summer slowly fades into autumn. Pick up a few summer outfits to add to your wardrobe this season, or load up on timeless classics you can wear next year.
Skip: Major household appliances and other items
Need a new fridge or another major household appliance? Hold off a bit until Labor Day, when you can find prices on brand-name appliances slashed by as much as 30%. Similarly, if you are shopping for new mattresses, you are best off waiting until Labor Day sales for more savings. This year, Labor Day is on Sept. 5, but sales can start up to a full week before the actual date.
Buy: Wedding décor and gifts
According to wedding magazine The Knot, the months of June, September and October are the most popular for weddings. With August right in the middle of these months, but not popular for actual weddings, it can be the perfect time to pick up discounted wedding decor, gifts and even wedding wear.
