Great End-of-Summer Sale Items
Brace yourself for some bad news: summer is ending. Feel free to take a moment, but once your mourning period is over, consider the bright side of things. For one, autumn–perhaps the best season of all!–is just around the corner. And also, the end of summer means that you could take advantage of some serious summer item savings as merchants try to offload their stock. That means now is the best time to stock up for next summer! Here are some items you can expect will have some discounts.
Who grills during the winter? Nobody, that’s who. So, if you missed out on hosting a grill party this summer and you want to be prepared for next year, it’s just about time to start looking at grills. Just keep in mind that you’ll want to grab a protective cover if you plan on leaving your grill outside. You don’t want the winter elements messing up your new purchase.
As soon as the leaves begin to fall, T-shirts and shorts will be the last thing on your mind. But while you’ll trade in your summer apparel for some flannel and jeans, the colder months are a great time to make your summer clothing purchases. This goes for swim suits, too! Just be mindful of packing on any hibernation weight over the cold months of winter. You’ll want to fit into your new clothes come next summer, after all.
As the weather turns from sunny to cloudy and the snowflakes begin to fall, less and less people head outside to get their daily exercise, instead relying on the shelter of an indoor gym – or deciding to take a winter-long break instead. If you’re a runner, the end of the year is a great time to stock up on new shoes, clothing, and accessories. Even if you get your outdoor exercise through other means, like kayaking or volleyball, you might just find that the purchases for these activities are easier to manage in the off-season.
Summer is the typical busy season for travel in the States, and it’s during these most ideal months you’ll find that vacation tickets, and many other things related to travel, are inflated in price. While your final ticket price will depend on a few different factors, including which airport you fly out of and what day you leave, you can bet on overall prices being lower due to the colder weather. There are other benefits to travelling in the off-season, too: less lines, less crowds, and hopefully better service.
OK, this is a big, unlikely purchase, but if you’re in the market… While it might seem that there’s always a deal going on at the local dealership, now might be the best time of the year to buy. This is about the time that the new year’s models start showing up, meaning that dealers will be looking to shift their stock around to make room for the new cars. It should go without saying that, as tempting as a new car might be, it’s going to be one of the largest investments you make, so decide wisely.
