Wondering what to buy in September? Look no further!
As I’m sure many of you know, stores follow a yearly sales cycle, so with a few exceptions, you can usually anticipate finding the same products on sale at the same time every year.
Here’s what you can expect to find on sale in September:
Summer Apparel & Accessories
Now is the absolute best time of the year to buy summer apparel and accessories, since summer is on it’s way out the door.
Look for swimwear, sandals, sunglasses, sun hats, t-shirts and tank tops, shorts and capri pants.
The kids are back in school, so stores are bringing out great deals on snack and convenience foods.
Look for crackers, cookies, juice boxes, pudding and Jell-O cups. You can find other lunch and breakfast items on sale as well, including bread, lunchmeat, peanut butter, jelly, Pop Tarts, waffles, pancake mix & syrup and more!
Bed Linens, Towels & Bath Supplies
There are always “White Sales” right around Labour day and this year will be no exception.
Look for fantastic deals on sheet sets, comforters/duvets, pillows, towels and bath supplies such as toothbrush holders, small trash cans, shower curtains and floor mats.
If you’re in the market for a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine or dryer, now is the time to pick one up.
Stores are bringing in many newer models soon, so the “old” models will get a pretty decent price reduction this month.
Fall plants are going to make their way in to garden centres any time now, so this is a great time to pick up shrubs, bushes and other landscaping plants. Just make sure you only purchase plants that will grow in all temperatures.
Lawn Care Items
You can find some great deals on lawn mowers, leaf blowers, hedge trimmers and a bunch of other lawn care items in September.
You can also find deals on gardening supplies.
Labour Day is considered to be the last barbecue party of the year, and immediately afterward, barbecue grills will be on deep discount almost everywhere, so stores can clear out inventory and make room for the newer models.
Also look for barbecue tools and items such as hot dogs, ground beef, buns and condiments on sale in September.
Sales started happening in August for patio sets, but September is the best time to buy, in terms of how much money you can save on your purchase.
Shop early, though, as these items sell quickly because of how inexpensive they are this month.
Produce on sale in September:
Apples, Bananas, Blueberries, Cantaloupe, Grapes, Lemons, Mangoes, Nectarines, Papayas, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Raspberries, Watermelon, Artichokes, Beans (Green/Wax), Beets, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant, Lettuce, Mushrooms, Onions, Peppers, Potatoes, Radishes, Spinach, Squash, Sweet Potatoes Tomatoes, Zucchini
Waiting until just the right moment to buy something is one of the best things you can do to save money. Unless you need it right away, hold off on any purchase you need to make until it is the best time to buy.
