August is one of my favorite times of the year. Back to school sales have started, Fall is approaching quickly, and I’m already counting down to Black Friday. This month is a great time to shop for all kinds of items, especially summer apparel. As the warmer months come to an end, check out these 10 items you should stock-up on while you have the chance.
Get Up To 80% Off Swimsuits, Beach Towels, & More!
The Summer season is coming to an end and that means some sweet end-of-season sales at places like Target, Walmart, Dollar, Tree, and other. Last year I hit the jackpot and score cute swimsuits and beach towels for crazy low prices! You can also find summer themed decor for cheaper now too! Be sure to plan some trips to scour these sales.
Pick-up Cheap School Supplies
We already mentioned some tips and tricks for back-to-school shopping, but now really is the best time to save on all your school shopping needs! There are some great sales all throughout August so be sure to keep an eye out. Plus, we also see some special Printable Coupons during this time to save on paper, pencils, crayons and more! Don’t miss out on these savings!
Stock-up On Printer Paper
You may not think about it, but this is a great time to buy printer paper. Staples run a promotion where you score a ream of paper for only $0.01 after a mail-in rebate. You can buy enough this month to set you up until next August.
Save On Lysol Disinfectant
This month, make sure you have an adequate supply of Lysol Disinfecting products. Stores are running lots of sales on these products this month, so you’ll get some of the best prices available all year! For example, you can get it for only $1.89 at Target after a Printable Coupon and Gift card offer. Be prepared for the cold and flu season!
Enjoy Delicious Raspberries and Strawberries For Less
Another item you won’t find cheaper any other time of the year are berries! Stores are trying to get them off the shelves before the spoil so you get all the savings! You can find raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and more under $2.00 a container. Plus, you can find coupons for them on manufacturer websites like Driscoll’s.
Stores know that with kids going back to school, the hecticness of the first few weeks means that easy breakfast items are going to be a staple. You’ll be able to find granola bars and other breakfast items on sale for cheap! I spotted some quaker cereal bars on sale for $2.00 at Target. There are Printable Coupons and cartwheel offers that make them only $1.00! My kids love these, so I’ll be stocking up!
In keeping with the breakfast theme, be sure you grab a few boxes of your favorite cereal! Just like with the granola bars, there are lots of sales on cereal. And while you may not have time to have cereal for breakfast, it makes a great snack after school!
While this may not fall under the cheap category, you can find savings upwards of 30% on new laptops and other tech for back to school! Even the Apple store offers student discounts! Stores like Adorama, Dell Home, Lenovo, and the Microsoft Store are all offering deals on laptops from Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Asus. If you need a new computer for school, get it this month!
For the same reason now is the time to buy swimwear, this is a great time to upgrade your patio furniture. End of Season sales at places like Target can yield savings as high as 40% Off! Be sure to shop online too, as many retailers are getting rid of summer sets.
Depending on what part of the country you live in you may be able to score some crazy good deals on Wine! August-September is most when vineyards harvest their grapes. As they clear out inventory to make space for the literally tons of grapes that are about to come in, you can score some amazing deals on wine.
Kids shoes will be super cheap during this time! There will be lots of sales including some BOGO FREE Sales, so be sure to keep your eyes out for those. We regularly see prices around 40% Off, so it is worth waiting until this time of year if you can.
