Saving with 6abc: Things to buy in August
July 31, 2013 (WPVI) -- You may want to kick back and stay by the beach or pool, but as kick off August tomorrow, the bargains are on overdrive and it's time to get out there and grab those deals.
Here are the 5 best things to buy this month:
1. Back-to-School Shopping
Sorry, kids, but it's time to think about heading back to school. August is the best month to get big discounts on everything you will need to head back to class. Prices will be slashed this month before they go back up in September. We're talking up to 70% off.
2. Summer clothes discounts
Also, look for major steals on summer items hitting those clearance racks. We're talking 90% off.
4. Summer Vacation
If you have waited to book a summer vacation, procrastinators can cash in on the savings big time. August offers the best deals for last minute bookings on both hotel and airfare. Package deals offer the best savings. Try Groupon Getaways or Jetsetter for daily deals.
Winemakers are heading into the year's big grape harvesting season. That means last harvest's wines are on sale to make room for new bottles. You should check with local wineries directly for discounts.
