October is here, which means it’s time to share another set of great monthly deals! And if it feels as though this month’s list is a bit shorter than usual, that’s because it is. Sales and deals are often harder to come by during October, because many retailers are already busy preparing for next month’s Black Friday sales! While those super steep discounts won’t crop up for another few weeks, there are still a handful of deals worth mentioning right now! So without further ado, here are 6 things you can snag at a great price during the month of October. :-)
Curious about what deals you can score in November or December? I’ve got you covered all year! Check in around the beginning of each month in 2018, because I’ll be sharing a post like just this one, letting you know what deals to look out for that month!
October Is The Best Month To Buy…
The Back-To-School shopping season is winding down, which means that retailers will be looking to get rid of their leftover stock this month. Many retailers typically have an overstock of denim jeans this month, so keep your eyes peeled for great markdowns and discounts! You may not have the biggest selections of sizes and styles to choose from, but if you’ve been needing a new pair of jeans, now is a great time to buy!
2. Winter Coats
It might not feel like it right now, but as the Starks say in Game of Thrones, “winter is coming!” And October is the perfect time to stock up on winter coats and other cold weather clothes. You’ll have tons of sizes and styles to choose from this month, and prices will be pretty good too. (Prices will drop again in the spring, but you’ll be picking through the leftovers if you wait that long!)
This month is a goldmine for deals on outdoor furniture. The outdoor season is really wrapping up, so home improvement stores and other outdoor furniture retailers will be making room for holiday decorations and winter tools. If you’ve had your eye on a new patio set or a few new outdoor chairs, you’re likely to save quite a bit if you buy them this month!
4. Pizza & Tacos
October is a great month for fans of pizza and tacos (which includes just about everyone, I think.) National Taco Day is coming up on October 4th, so keep an eye out for free or discounted tacos that day at your favorite taco joint!
As far as pizza goes, you can celebrate all month long, because October is National Pizza Month! Look out for pizza-related deals and freebies in your area. Most deals like these are announced through social media, so be sure look up your favorite pizza places on Facebook or Instagram!
Car sales don’t get much better than the ones you’ll find this month. The new 2019 models are still being rolled out, which means that car dealers are still offering great prices to clear out last year’s models. You can find deals and sales on cars all month long, but Columbus Day sales in particular tend to have great prices and incentives. But you might be even better off waiting til the end of the month, in the hopes of catching a car salesman who’s eager to meet his sales quota before the end of the quarter!
If you’re looking for a killer deal, the best time to buy Halloween costumes is actually after Halloween. But if you need a costume for a party this month, wait until about 2 weeks before the 31st. That’s when you’ll start seeing markdowns and discounts!
