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.

6.) Cookware
  • 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.

7.) Jeans
  • The rush for back-to-school clothes has ended, so retailers are cutting prices on leftover inventory, which includes a lot of denim.

8.) Bicycles
  • 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.

    Does anyone know best time to buy a mattress, need a king size.?

    • Karla

      I bought mine at Walmart.com through one of the deals Colin & team posted. It’s one of the memory foam mattresses. I got a queen for around $100. I’ve been very pleased.

    Where do you recommend to buy washer and dryer from? and when is best time.

    • Beverlys

      I’ve noticed Sears, Lowes and Home Depot have great sales right before Thanksgiving on washer/dryers. I got a terrific deal on a pair then.

      • Karla

        We purchased our washer, dryer, and tv the weekend before Thanksgiving several years ago. We saved more money by purchasing before Black Friday.

      I always buy appliances at Sears outlets. I live in NJ, but drive a 15 min drive to Delaware to a store. If you pay cash in DE, no sales taxes either and if willing to bring home yourself. If you use charge and have delivered, you pay both sales tax and delivery charges. A manager from outlet told me that any appliance that is returned and inspected and fixed if problems. Then there are returns that perhaps didn’t fit into the persons space when they ordered and returned. I bought a gas dryer (Kenmore Elite) that had never even been hooked up to gas or unpacked. Brand new! They also have some that have minor defects such as scratches or dents. If you don’t mind or care you can get a fantastic deal. They also can give you a warranty too!
      Sears when they also have a big sale during major holidays. If you have a sears charge, sometimes they offer 0% financing for 6 months to 18 months. It depends on what they are offering at that time. At least if you have to use charge, you have more time to pay off with no interest!
