Summer is over and fall has just begun and with it, September brings a few really awesome sales! While you won’t be stocking up on school supplies or BBQ goodies this month, there are some great deals that you won’t want to miss.
What to Stock Up on in September
To start, if you know of a diabetic (or are one yourself), this month you’ll want to take advantage of a slew of diabetes supplies on sale. Things like sugar free cereals and cookies as well as glucose meters and other testing supplies.
Tomatoes are king this month as well. Things like tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, pasta and pasta sauce, and sometimes ketchup will all go on sale. Be sure you stock up on them because it’ll be a while before we see these kind of sale prices on them again.
For other food items, be sure to take a look at condensed soups. They should all go on sale to prepare for colder winter months. Pick up the ones you’ll need to last the winter because the next time we will see these prices is the holidays and even that will be on very specific types.
In personal care, think teeth. Toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrushes and other oral care items will all hit the sale racks this month. Usually these sales show more at the drug stores like Walgreens than they do at the grocery store though so be careful that you don’t overlook them.
September is also a great month for stocking up on summer items at clearance prices. Things like grills, patio furniture, a/c units, charcoal and more should all be marked down pretty significantly. It never hurts to prepare now for next summer. You also may find a few markdowns on straggler school supplies, especially small electronics or small organization items that college kids would typically use. If you do manage to find them, go ahead and grab them to help yourself organize your home on a budget.
