August: What to Expect on Sale This Month In-Store & Online

Can you believe it’s already August?!  The year is flying by, so with that, comes new sale cycles.  This month brings us a bunch of new and exciting bargains!  First of all, Back to school deals were springing up in July, and we’ll see that continue through August.  Since Summer is only half-way over, so grilling, picnics and BBQs are still showing us some sizzling sales.  What else can we expect on sale this month?  Keep your eyes open in-store, and most of all, be sure to watch the blog for awesome online deals on these items:

Back To School

Back to school and home items on sale in August

Not only do the elementary kids get their school supplies for free or cheap (rulers, crayons, paper, erasers, backpacks, etc.), August is geared a bit more for the collegiate crowd.  Dorm room and apartment necessities are ALL on sale this month.  Watch for things like bedding, small kitchen appliances, starter sets for bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms on sale.  So, if a college student can use it, it will be on sale.  Think toasters, blow dryers, organization containers, electric toothbrushes, shavers, alarm clocks…..
Also, this is a great time to take advantage of these deals for your own home, or wedding gifts! Another idea is to stock up on these products for holiday gift-giving.

Don’t miss our Back to School Supply Price Guide!  Check out some current Back to School deals we posted!

Athletic Gear & Workout Wear

Exercise items on sale in August


Bicycles, running shoes, yoga gearweights and workout items – all of these things will be marked down this month, as well.  Retailers know that as a result of cooler weather approaching, things like outdoor workout necessities will be harder to sell.  Therefore, they mark them down because they need to make room for the cold weather gear  Bargain Hunters will scoop up these deals on sale and smile about it!  This is a great time to grab those workout shoes or yoga pants you’ve been eyeing.

Tools & Hardware

Tools on sale in August


Tools and hardware don’t go on sale too often.  Mostly, we see a nice drop in prices around Father’s Day, and during the holidays. These are items that just don’t have HUGE discounts consistently, August is a GREAT month to find deals on drills, screw and wrench sets and hardware for your tool drawer!  Also, you have a handyman on your Christmas “to buy for” list, consider grabbing deals this month!  You might also consider that teenage moving into their own apartment or dorm, because could probably use some of these tools, now that mom and dad aren’t around!

Grocery Store Foods

Groceries on sale in August

We’ll see great deals on kid snacks and kid portioned foods this month.  We’ll also find more coupons and deals on things like peanut butter (we usually see peanut butter sales and coupons come out the last week of July). Also, watch for coupons and sales on pasta & pasta sauce, cheese, Lunchables, kid drinks, granola bars, jell-o cups and pudding cups, Ziploc baggies, and snack crackers. So, basically, anything you can toss into a lunchbox (or take on a picnic!) will be on sale this month – and there will be tons of great coupons, too!  Match rock bottom sale prices with those coupons, and you’ll score some awesome deals.

Need coupons?  Head over to our Coupon Database to start printing!

Produce

Finally, produce like apricots, eggplant and squash that take warmer weather for longer periods of time to reach their peak, are prime right now!  Therefore, grab what you can, stock up and freeze!  Why not grab a FoodSaver on sale right now, since you’ll be stocking up?
