What to buy in August

Posted: Updated:

With kids headed back to school.. saving every penny possible will ease the dent that's going to be put in your wallet. LifeHacker says...

  • Stock up on linens and storage containers for your college bound kid. You will find sales on bed sheets, pillows, comforters, and space savers.
  • DealNews pegs patio furniture, tables, chairs, and loungers, up to 75 percent off. Check out places like Home Depot, Walmart, Target, and sears.
  • To keep the patio party going, go on the hunt for a grill because prices will be slashed up to 50 percent.
  • And always keep your eyes open for extra coupons. I always check RetailMeNot before I shop online and at the stores.
  • Laptops. Typically, your best time to buy is Black Friday; but the month of August is the next best time to snag a great price. You'll see some around $350 or less. Apple's back to school sale will run all month long.
  • And for a late summer getaway, you'll want to book a hotel in Miami, Myrtle Beach, Vegas, or New York. Rates tend to drop anywhere from 20 to 40 percent on August 24th.
