What to Buy and What to Skip in September

September is a great time for deals, however, there are definitely items you should avoid purchasing. Here is a list of what to buy and skip in September.

Buy: Pool Toys

As it gets cooler out, retailers will want to clear the shelves of pool toys. It might stay warmer for a bit, so you can use them now, or save them for next summer. Stock up on inflatable rafts, arm floats, and beach balls while the prices drop. What would a pool party be without a few noodles and a volleyball net? Whether it’s the end of the season or next year, you’ll be ready.

Skip: Decorations

If you want to be proactive towards the holiday season, that’s great, just wait a few more weeks. Once October rolls around and the holidays are closer those decorations, will be a lot cheaper. It’s also a good idea to check and see what you already have. If you’re good about keeping your decorations in good condition, you won’t have to buy anything else.

Buy: Phones

September has always been a big month for phones. Typically, Apple releases their new iPhone models and has major announcements. With these events taking place, older models will go down in price. Look for discounts and specials on phones and accessories. Staying up to date with your devices and operating systems doesn’t mean getting the newest model. If you get one or two models back, you’ll save a lot of money.           

Skip: Electronics

There are always deals for electronics during Black Friday, but that’s a couple months away. Hold off until those sales happen and save your money. By waiting for Black Friday Sales, you could be saving hundreds of dollars on purchases. Take a look at what you’d like to get and make a list. Have patience, and buy later.
