Did you know that there are different things on sale each month of the year?
A while back I put together a Month to Month Shopping Guide that lists the best items to buy each month to save money!
Here I am highlighting the best items to buy this month!
Halloween deals are happening this month! However, note that the best deals are right before and right after Halloween.
It’s also pizza month so watch for pizza deals!
Or make this homemade pizza recipe!
Plus, National Taco Day is October 4th, so watch for taco deals!
October is the best time to buy:
Tires and car supplies are discounted for Fall Car Care month.
Halloween candy, decorations, costumes – the closer to Halloween, the better the deals, but the lower the selection
Summer clearance items; best time to stock up on next summer’s patio furniture or buy a grill
Appliances and vacuums: New models arrive so you’ll find sales on last year’s kitchen appliances and washers and dryers
Winter gear: Get good early deals on coats, hats and scarves
Camping gear, as summer camping season comes to an end
Travel! Warm destinations want to attract families now that kids are in school, and it’s not yet the holiday season. (I recommend visiting places right here in the midwest – check out my travel page!)
Cars! October through December is when dealerships are trying to get rid of old models. Bonus – go at the end of the month as they’re most motivated to meet sales quotas. Check out my guide “5 Tips for Buying a Car for Less.”
What NOT to Buy Right Now:
Electronics. These will go lower in price next month for Black Friday so wait if you can.
Seasonal produce on sale now:
Indigenous Peoples/Columbus Day – 50% off clothing, shoes and home items at thrift stores like Savers and Unique Thrift Stores
