WHAT TO BUY LATER
Whether you’re in need of a new fridge or vacuum, hold off on making big appliance purchases this month. Instead, wait until November and take advantage of Black Friday deals on these household essentials.
You should replace your bras every 3 months and always have an extra stash of fresh undies tucked away. Since these essentials can get pricey, the best time to shop for undergarments is January. In fact, major retailers like Victoria’s Secret often host their semi-annual sales at this time.
Even though laptops are a Back to School staple, they don’t get deeply discounted until November, so hold off and you’ll save big.
