Is a shopping spree on the agenda of your three-day holiday weekend? Here are some of the best home and homeowner items to purchase for your money this Labor Day.
Out with the old, in with the new. Now is the time to score clearance deals on all the essentials to complete your outdoor living space. But according to Ben’s Bargains, you should wait a few more weeks to purchase a new grill, as prices will continue to drop by an additional 25% into October and November.
If it’s time to spruce up your bedroom necessities, Reader’s Digest says September is the best month to purchase a mattress. A 2014 study found that shoppers scored mattresses anywhere from 50 to 60 percent off over the Labor Day weekend.
Lawn Care Essentials
Big box retailers will be trying to clear out summer lawn care inventory. Expect to see big price drops on lawn mowers, trimmers, edgers and even gardening and landscaping essentials like mulch, garden soil and fall-blooming plants.
Major appliances – refrigerators, dishwashers, washers and dryers – also drop significantly in price around Labor Day due to retailers trying to make room for new model inventory. According to PRNewswire, you can expect to see savings up to 60 percent over the weekend.
Skip any Labor Day sales on TV’s or other general electronics. Those prices reach lows starting in November leading into Black Friday. Instead, stock up on back-to-school or home office necessities like laptops, which drop in price following the back-to-school rush.
Last-Minute Getaway Flights
Thinking of one last hurrah before summer really ends? Early fall is shoulder season – the time between the peak summer and holiday travel times – so now is a great time to nab heavily discounted hotel rooms and/or airfare to your vacation home.
