The Best Things to Buy in September

11 Sep

Here is a list of items that are best to buy in September:

  • Appliances New models come out in Sept and Oct so older models will be cheaper.
  • Bicycles New models are debuting this month, but the end of bicycle season is coming to an end which means better savings.
  • Holiday Airfare The best deals for air travel are 8 weeks before traveling. Now is the time to buy for Thanksgiving.
  • School Supplies School has just begun, there are still sales and you might have just realized that you need another item.
  • Wine Harvest season is happening now and new wines are hitting the market.
  • iPhone With the release of the 5S and the 5C there is a price drop for older models.
  • Denim Because denim is a great transition from summer to fall many retailers are competetive prices now.
  • Kitchen Goods Lower prices on kitchen goods happened because of summer weddings and students going to college and now the prices will stay low.
  • Outdoor Goods (lawnmowers, patio furniture, garden products, pool equipment etc) End of the season sales.
