SEASONAL STOCKPILING: What is going on sale this month

The month of September brings out more back to school sales. Last minute stock up opportunities for those school supplies.

Many merchandisers promote new lines of baby items, which means many baby items will be on sale this month.

Keep an eye out for summer clearance items after Labor Day. This is the time when that cute swim suit goes on sale or that pool inflatable is marked down to give away prices.
