Things to buy on sale in August

3 things on sale in August

Did you know that certain consumer goods go on sale during specific months of the year? If you plan your shopping for anything from home items to clothing and electronics based on these sale patterns you can save up to 50% on most of what you need.

Here are the best items to buy in August: 

Linens and storage containers: You’ve heard of January white sales, but there is also an August version! As students head to college or university, stores have sales that come in handy for new dorm supplies. If you’re looking for bed sheets, bath items and storage containers for a new place, this is the time to buy.

Office supplies: You don’t have to be a student to take advantage of back to school sales. This is the perfect time to load up on paper, pencils, pens, notebooks, and even tissue and paper towels for the year. You can either buy now or later in September when stores are getting rid of leftovers.

Swimsuits: Summer may be close to being over, but you can still snap up a good deal on summer apparel to wear in August and September (or stock up for next summer). While you can find good deals on swimwear at the beginning of spring too, the best discounts are available at the end of summer when everyone is clearing out their inventory.
