Wondering what items you should buy this fall? 🍁
With fall finally upon us, you may be wondering what deals you should be spending your hard-earned money on during the months of September, October and November? Here are 10 items that you may want to stock up on and/or watch for clearance or special deals on over the next few months…
1.) Seasonal Produce
- October – apples, artichokes, arugula, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, chard, cranberries, parsnip, pears, pomegranates, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, winter squash, turnips, yams.
- November – Anjou pears, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbages, carrots, celery, Comice pears, cranberries, kiwi, lemons, oranges, potatoes, squash, yams
2.) Halloween Items
- Candy, pumpkins, costumes, accessories, home decor, etc (watch for clearance in November!)
3.) Canned Foods and Broths
- Soups/broths, canned vegetables & fruits, canned tomato products, etc.
4.) Baking Supplies
- Flour, sugar, mixes, canned pumpkin, canned pie fillings, prepared pie crusts, evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, nuts, spices, etc.
5.) Holiday Staples
- Turkey, canned pureed pumpkin, stuffing mix, boxed potatoes, gravy mixes, ready-to-bake rolls, frozen pies, cranberry sauce, gelatin, marshmallows, etc.
- In preparation for the holiday season, retailers discount cookware items and often use them as an incentive to purchase other items. With the holiday sales and Black Friday deals, you can get a high-quality set at a much lower price.
- The rush for back-to-school clothes has ended, so retailers are cutting prices on leftover inventory, which includes a lot of denim.
- New models typically come out between September and November, but some will debut as early as late July, depending on the company. The best time to look into getting a new bike is usually at the end of the cycling season (mid-autumn).
9.) Large Appliances
- With the exception of refrigerators, September, October, and January are when manufacturers roll out new home appliance models, and retailers are eager to move last year’s inventory.
10.) Patio Furniture
- This will vary from store to store, but outdoor seating typically goes on sale after Labor Day passes. The further away from summer we get, the more desperate stores are to unload summer goods and make room for winter gear, which means lots of clearance and discounts.
