What to Buy and What to Skip in September

The warmer weather is heading out but some great deals are rolling in. Here is what to buy and what to skip in September. 

Buy: Mattresses and bedding

You can find deep discounts on mattresses during the month of September at almost any retailer that sells them. Top off the deal with some bedding and bath supplies, which are also selling at bargain prices. Be sure to start comparison-shopping at least a week or two before Labor Day to get the best deal! 

Skip: Halloween costumes and decor

Retailers might have you thinking Halloween is tomorrow, but you still have plenty of time to prepare for October 31. Though Halloween costumes and decor will hit the stores in September, it’s best to hold off on these purchases until October rolls around – which is the earliest you will start seeing discounts. 

Buy: Airfare

Since the days are getting shorter, it’s time to think winter! The holidays will be here before you know it, and if you are looking to buy airline tickets at a great price, you may want to shop for them in September. The best deals on plane tickets usually show up eight weeks before the travel date, and for Thanksgiving, that means you will need to buy tickets in September. Look out for deals on tickets at the end of the month to save big on your travel plans. 

Skip: Autumn wear

It’s too early in the season for discounts on fall clothing. Pick up some essentials if you must, but you are best to wait until October or November to shop for your complete autumn wardrobe at lower prices.

Buy: Denim

Jeans are a popular item during back-to-school shopping. Come September, retailers will lower prices to unload their unsold inventory. Cash in on a great deal by shopping these sales for a new pair of denim jeans. 

Skip: Electronics

Labor Day might bring some incredible deals on big-ticket items, but electronics aren’t among them. Instead, TVs, headphones, audio systems and more tend to see their lowest prices during Black Friday sale events. Wait just a little bit longer and you can get a better deal on an electronic item you have been eyeing for months.
