Smart savers don’t buy things on a whim whenever a passing desire hits them from out of left field. Smart savers know what to buy and when. When they find bargains on items they use up, they stock up with enough to last until the next time that item goes on sale. And for certain, they know what to buy in September.
These folks know that summer clothes are on sale around Labor Day. So they wait, patiently, then stock up for next summer. They know which is the best day in September to negotiate a great deal on a new or certified used car. They just know this stuff!
Plants and trees
Garden centers are clearing out their stock of summer plants, trees, and shrubs. Check your local nurseries and garden departments in stores like Home Depot and Lowes for super deals! You still have plenty of time to plant and get these things growing well before winter sets in. The local tree farm where I live has its annual $.50 tree sale in full bloom—buy one at regular price and get a second for just fifty-cents. Look around, you might have something similar where you live.
Starting this month expect to see sales on home appliances as stores are clearing out space to load in new 2020 models. Look for huge discounts and sales on last year’s models of stoves, microwaves, refrigerators and small appliances, too.
