As the weather starts to cool off, the savings are heating up! The fall months are a great time of year to purchase some typically expensive items at deep discounts as stores roll out sales to clear their seasonal inventory. Here are some big-ticket items to watch for:
Patio Furniture. Spruce up your outdoor space while you can still enjoy the weather. Big and bulky tables and chairs take up valuable real estate in stores so you won't see prices much cheaper than they are now. Check out the steals during the patio and garden clearance at Target.
Outdoor Equipment & Tools. As winter approaches, home improvement retailers are slashing prices on pressure washers, leaf blowers and more to make room for, you guessed it, snow blowers and shovels. Browse the selection of discounted outdoor gear at Lowe's.
Appliances. Now is the time to upgrade your washer, dryer or fridge and enjoy extra savings on your utility bills from increased energy efficiency. Best Buy has tons of options, plus they offer a price match guarantee, just in case you find a better deal elsewhere.
Cell Phones. It's no secret that tech companies tend to announce new mobile phone models in the fall, which means lower prices on the previous versions. If you're looking for even more savings, consider a refurbished phone or you can sell off your old device to offset the cost.
Grills. With Labor Day in the rearview mirror, prime grilling season has sadly come to an end. But who says you can't BBQ into the cooler months? Find great deals on all things outdoor cooking at Home Depot.
Cars. Dealerships are eager to clear out current inventory in the fall to make room for the new model year, which means you could be driving off with some new wheels at an incredibly low purchase or lease price. Use these tips to negotiate the best possible deal.
