Getting the Most Out of End-of-Summer Sales

As summer vacation comes to a close, many families are prepping for the upcoming school year. With back-to-schools sales around every corner, are there any deals on items other than school supplies? The following list will help you to decide on what to buy now, and what can wait, providing potential savings for you and your family.

Got Paper?
Of course, this is the best time of year to get your kids’ clothes, shoes, backpacks and other items for school, but don’t forget to pick up those office supplies you’ve been meaning to buy for work or home!
Get Your Grill On
August is when most large retailers begin to cut major deals on outdoor furniture and grills. Towards the end of the month, you may be able to find prices up to 80-90% off, however, the selection will surely by limited.

Buy Clothes Now For Next Summer
Here on the Gulf Coast, swimwear and flip flops are available year round, but now is the time to buy! As the fall season approaches,  stores begin to place more emphasis on long sleeves and pants, so you can really rack up the end-of-summer savings.
Laptop or Tablet?
If your student has been asking (ok, begging) for a new computer, you may finally be able to grant his or her wish! Back-to-school time is perfect for finding deals on electronics. For extra savings, be sure to take advantage of rebates and special student-only discounts.

Want to avoid the back-to-school crowds? Many stores offer online deals, as well as in-store pick-up so you can get all of your shopping done from the comfort of home.
