August: Best Time To Shop
August is traditionally the best time of year to purchase school and office supplies, backpacks, laptops, and MP3 players. Back to college sales will make this month the best time to buy futons, small refrigerators, and other "dorm room" furnishings such as linens, pillows, and storage containers - items nearly anyone may want to purchase.
Back to school also means back to the lunchbox so look for awesome stock up deals on juice boxes, Lunchables and other ready-made kid snacks, cereals, pudding cups, yogurt, chips, snack cakes, cereal/granola bars, fruit snacks, cookies, canned fruit, peanut butter, jelly, lunch meats, cheese slices. You can also find some great deals on ice cream, soda, bottled water, and iced tea mixes/bags in August. Waffles and frozen breakfast items will go on sale in August just in time for back to school!
Other back to school items to look for during August are tissues, disinfectants, hand sanitizers, and cleaning wipes.
Retail stores will be preparing for Halloween already in August so look for summer clearance sales on sunscreen, insect repellent, swimsuits, shorts, caps, sporting goods, tents, charcoal, flip flops, and water toys.
