August savings with Georgine-
August usually means summer is winding down, but sales are just beginning to soar.
Back To School
Back-to-school is first and foremost. Look for backpacks, school supplies, computers, and dorm needs. A good choice is Staples because they have lots of school supplies NOW that are very cheap. Don’t wait until school starts. Sneakers and running shoes will also be on sale now, so take advantage. This is the month to get the deals. Even so, save all your receipts in case you will need for a price match. Most stores now have this policy, so it’s best to buy when you see what you want and return for a price adjustment.
Beyond back-to-school you’ll find deals on last-minute getaways especially to destinations where it is hurricane season. You may even earn frequent flyer miles on these vacations that will give you a free trip later in the year.
Don’t forget summer clothing sales. You’ll find bargains you can use for these last few warm weather months or save for next season. Summer sleepwear will be on clearance racks too.
If camping is your passion, you will find great deals on tents and sleeping bags in stores that need to make room for winter gear and sports.
Looking for a new car? Now is the time because the new models will soon be hitting the car lots and they need to make room for them. Try to get there around the 1st or 2nd of September. This will reap you a big savings because these sales will count toward the dealer’s August quotas.
In the supermarket you can stock up on school lunch favorites such as peanut butter and jelly, lunch meat, American cheese, yogurt, chips, snack cakes and bars, bottled water, and drink boxes. This time of the year you’ll find lots of coupons for these items in your Sunday newspaper and online. Take advantage of these and combine sales for a home run.
