This weekend is the last hurrah of summer and the stores know it. They are having big sales and you should take advantage of them - especially the clearance racks. They will be trying to get rid of camping gear, summer toys, swim equiptment, etc.
Think ahead for Christmas and next summer. Buy things that you anticipate you will need for these times and you will save a bundle! I am planning on buying a $40 inflatable pool for $9.99, $20 camping chairs for $5.99, and wrapping them for Christmas and seeing my girls get so excited.
You may be wondering how I know the clearance prices. I payed attention last year, so I know what to expect. Happy Hunting.
p.s. This is also the last big yard sale weekend. You can find a list of yards sales close to you by going on www.Craigslist.org
