What should you buy in August?

Posted: Updated:

Kids are headed back to school, and parents are looking to save some cash.  The month of August is a great time to find deals, but experts say you have to know what to look for.

The key is to think like a retailer.  You'll get the best deals on items stores are trying to move.  Here's a list of things to buy in August:

LAWN FURNITURE - The folks at Home Depot say they don't want patio furniture sitting around, so prices may drop as much as 50-75 percent.

BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLIES - 
Everything from backpacks to dorm décor are on sale.  

ELECTRONICS  -
Companies roll out new items in the fall for the holiday season, and that means they're trying to clear out all the old technology.  

SUMMER CLOTHES – You'll find deals on anything that gets a new line each year, from clothes to accessories to summer sleepwear, especially for women.  Swimsuits are included here.

BOATING & CAMPING SUPPLIES – When the weather changes, prices drop on these summer items.

POOL TOYS
– In the south, you can use them into the fall.  Not the case everywhere.

    Ten time Ironman, Dave Nazaroff recently rode 900 miles on his bicycle...from Nyack, New York...to Georgia. He didn't do it to get in shape, or to win a competition; he did it to raise money for a 11 year old Callie Truelove in Gainesville, Georgia.
