Best deals in October that will save you money

Christmas is right around the corner and consumer experts say, October is the perfect month to stock up and save money on gifts. Consumer Reports says prices on top items are lower than ever.

With temperatures starting to drop, many people are spending their days inside not out. Jenna Kardoes at Christy Sports says, it’s the perfect time to buy outdoor patio furniture, grills and lawn mowers, because they are all on sale.

Kardoes says, “typically you are grilling all summer long so we need to mark down our grills and get them out of here but what’s cool is that we have Big Green Eggs, we have Traeger and you are going to cook your Thanksgiving turkey on these.”

Summer has come and gone, which also means not as many people are camping like they were the past few months. REI, REI Garage, Bass Pro Shop and Cabela’s Bargain Cave are great places to stock up on discounted camping gear if you plan on heading out again next year.

With back to school shopping over and Christmas shopping right around the corner, October is also the perfect time to pick up your favorite pair of denim. Right now, Lucky is having a 40 to 50 percent off sale on denim and so are Levis and Gap.

This time of year, many of us like to snuggle up under the covers, but if your bed is 7 to 10 years old, it’s time to buy a new one. Right now, Costco has great deals on new mattresses. If you want a super cheap mattress, then look no further than your local Walmart. They have the Slumber 1 in a box starting at $55 dollars.

Don’t forget, right now is the ideal time to purchase holiday flights. The longer you wait, the more money you pay.
