The summer can be a time when you pay the premium price for such things as wedding, gas for travel, not to mention booking air, hotel, and rental cars due to the peak travel season. It’s amazing the supply and demand when it comes to the timing of making purchases, so it’s important to buy low whenever you can. Although summer may be prime price hiking season, as we get to August is when you can start looking for deals on certain items.
New or Used Cars
By now you will start to see all of the “summer clearance” sales commercials for just about every local car dealership in your area, so great if you are in the market for a new car, and annoying if you’re not. Obviously take a look to the fine print when you see how cheap the deals are, what they don’t tell you is that price is with just about every discount available, but out the door will still be cheaper than the rest of the year, as they are moving the old models in favor of the new coming in.
Sure, it may be getting too late to build up your summer wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start building for next year now. The summer attire will begin to go on sale in favor of the fall line, so this could be a good opportunity to buy a new swimsuit, although it would be for next year, unless you can squeeze out another month or two of great beach weather if you are lucky.
Back to School Supplies
Even as an adult it’s sad to hear about back to school, as that means the summer has gone by too fast, and that means the kids are about to go back to school, of which you can start to shell out money for back to school clothes at top dollar, but can get a deal on supplies. If you can wait until right after the kids go back to school is when you can clean up.
Speaking of needed supplies for school, the other kids (or yourself) could use an upgrade to the laptop, so now August and September is a great time to start shopping and you might be impressed with the deals you find. Although we are pretty relied on your smartphones and tablets, there still is need for a computer believe it or not, so staying up on the current technology at a decent price is well worth the cost.
While there may still be a couple months left of nice weather, it will be scary that stores will be putting out Christmas supplies in no time, so they will want to begin unloading outdoor supplies such as patio furniture & accessories, not to mention BBQ grills and lawnmowers. The great thing about grilling is that you can BBQ all year, so pick up a grill for cheap now to enjoy all the way through the dead of winter!
