[Free] What to Buy in August

Unfortunately, due to my age, I never had the luxury of returning to school after the Labor Day holiday but instead I returned sooner, about the third week in August. For many, August may not have the same bad taste as it did for me during my elementary school years when the school bell rang even though the neighborhood pool still called my name. However, even though I don't even get a summer vacation anymore (the perks of adulting??), that same sour taste that accompanied the month August in my past has now turned to the sweet taste of saving loads of money with all the Back-to-school sales this month has to offer!

Here are some good deals and items to purchase this month:

  1. Laptops: Back-to-school sales help give shoppers some great deals as many students head back to school in the fall. Luckily, you don’t have to be a student to take advantage of some of the great discounts and extras that might be available.


  1. Office/School Supplies: Many office supplies, including desks, chairs, etc. go on sale for Back-to-School time. Now might be a good time to stock up on some home office essentials you may need this year. Don’t forget to check out the printers too!


  1. Summer Clothes: As retail stores get ready for the fall season inventory, summer clothes will go on sale to make room for the new merchandise. You might even find some good Back-to-School deals in this category as well!


  1. Home Goods: As students head to college, you will find that some home goods, including decorations, linens, and other bedroom necessities will go on sale.
