Summer is coming to a close and other outlets are gearing up for winter.
Summer clothes are on clearance, yard tools and pretties, and also things to get the yard ready for fall and winter.
Now is the time to buy mulch and landscaping items - mums are going to be every where soon.
Also think about orchards for fall apples and cider - those are starting to happen.
Fall festivals will commence after this weekend - which means great farm markets and lots and lots of unusual items that can be purchased for gifts (or gift getting ideas you can make!).
Items to look for:
Hotdogs, ground beef, chicken, steaks
CheeseAlcohol if you so choose
Chips and dips
Crackers - flavored and assorted
Charcoal and grilling items
Summer fruits - watermelon, other melons (surprising strawberries are pretty cheap here too), peaches and pears
Bread and buns
Canned beans, pickles, relish
Late season produce - corn, summer squash, tomatoes
There are just so many places that are having sales. Even furniture places are having some great deals around here.
Take time to restock - whether it be your pantry or your yard/garden supplies or clothes.
This is probably the last big HURAAH until around Thanksgiving.
DON'T FORGET - many places are getting to the near end of yard sale season too. I well imagine there will be plenty through September - but that is also an option for great deals and savings and a lot of fun.
LOOK, SHOP AND SAVE!
