What You Shouldn’t Buy Before Labor Day

What You Shouldn’t Buy Before Labor Day
Labor Day weekend is the big kickoff for retailers, local and online, to cleanup leftover summer merchandise. Most of the fall merchandise is in and winter goods are on the way so retailers must make space. Here are some of things you will want to avoid buying before Labor Day.

  • Summer Apparel

    Most stores will either promote additional dollars off or take final markdowns on summer merchandise right before Labor Day weekend. Shop early Labor Day weekend for the best selection of final clearance summer apparel.

    Labor Day weekend is the final week to shop for swimwear at most local stores. It will be super cheap, but selection will be slim. After around the second week of September, the swimsuits disappear off the racks until next year.

  • Summer Accessories

    Looks for big reductions on straw hats, straw purses, summer scarves, summer jewelry, visors, and flip-flops. Stock up and pack it away until next year.

  • School Supplies

    Labor Day weekend and throughout September is the best time to stock up on school supplies. Stores will be taking deep discounts to move the merchandise out to make room for Halloween goods. Notebooks, pencils and pencil cases, glue and markers specially packaged for back-to-school shopping will be deeply discounted at most stores.

  • Canning Supplies

    Stores are ready to put canning supplies and pressure cookers away until next spring, but throughout September, shoppers should find end-of-season prices of at least 50 percent off on most of this type of merchandise. Remember, in many places throughout the country, farmers’ markets are fully stocked with fresh produce during the fall.

  • Anything Patio

    If you have been waiting for sales to spruce up your patio, wait just a few more weeks to take advantage of the biggest discounts. This will be the best time to save on patio furniture, cushions, umbrellas, outdoor rugs, and gazebos.

  • Grills

    Stores will be slashing prices on grills and grilling accessories over Labor Day weekend, so if you have wanted to buy a new one, then starting the first week of September and throughout the month will be a good time to shop. After September, usually the inventory shrinks and prices remain dormant until after the winter holidays.

  • Boxed and Ceiling Fans

    Have you been putting off replacing your old ceiling fans? September is a good month to find fans on promotion. Unfortunately, many stores consider ceiling fans almost as a staple home product, so markdowns may not be huge, but you can still expect to save at least 20 percent throughout the month.

  • Plants, Shrubs and Trees

    September is an excellent month to shop your local nurseries for big discounts on plants, shrubs and trees. Shoppers can expect to find savings of at least 50 percent and more. Do not expect it all to look pretty. By now, the summer heat has taken its toll and often times plants and trees that are popular in the spring tend to get pushed aside and ignored by the end of summer. However, with some TLC the plants will make a comeback. This is also good time to look for cheap prices out-of-season bulbs on sale. They can be easily stored until planting time next year.
