Dorm furniture. Check out big stores like Walmart and Target to offer great deals on things like futons and desks for those on their way to college.  These items work great in your office or study to work double duty and make use of your space.  Deals on other storage related furniture will abound as well.

Laptop computers.  August is probably the best month of their year to buy a laptop.  Only November offers similar discounts.  Find big name 15″ models for less than $400.  If you’re buying for a student don’t forget Apple offers a student discount.

 School supplies. Some sellers started their discounting last month but look for more and larger price drops this month.  Not going back to school?  Stock up on office supplies for the year at rock bottom prices.


Summer apparel.  Look for price drops from 40 to 70% this year.  Many opportunities to save will occur be it summer clearance sales, tax free weekends, and back to school sales.  Don’t forget you can save even more with print or online coupons.



Don’t Buy Just Yet…

Fall apparel. Fall apparel is just now being stocked at retailers and thus pricing is the highest.  You’ll have to wait until cooler weather to get deals on this gear.
