Labor Day is a great time to score deals on so many items. 

While we’re always sad to see summer come to an end, Labor Day weekend is always a fun way to welcome fall! This means having one last summer cookout and saving money on things like appliances, grills, patio furniture, mattresses, and more.

Better yet, select retailers start their Labor Day sales early, so you can get a jump on all the savings instead of waiting for the long weekend. Last year we saw many deals across the board from 60% off Crocs, $200 off Dyson vacuums, FREE Krispy Kreme donuts, and so much more.

Southwest Airlines planes

September is your best time to buy a plane ticket for your next trip.

Airlines tend to drop their prices in order to increase sales now that the summer vacation months are over. If you want to satisfy your wanderlust AND save some money, buy your airfare in September to save the most.

Shop the summer clearance finds at all your favorite retailers.

Another thing to shop for this month is closeout prices on summer apparel! This is the time of year when retailers are stocking their racks and shelves with the latest fall trends so summer items will be at their cheapest. Whether you’re shopping online or in-store, you’ll see many retailers lowering prices to make room for fall – especially once Labor Day is over at the beginning of the month.

Don’t hold out for better summer deals because by now this is about as good as it’ll get until it’s gone for the year! Check with your favorite retailers by heading to their site and searching under sale items for specific items you’re after.
