What's on sale in August

Even with the high cost of staying cool, August presents more than a few bargains for consumers.

You'll see deals on everything from barbecue mainstays to school supplies in August. Whether you're stocking up on classroom staples, outfitting a dorm room or throwing one last backyard bash, you can keep a little more green in your wallet.

August is also a great time to put some summer into your diet. Seasonal favorites, such as tomatoes, peaches, peppers and melons, start to hit their flavor peak this month.

Just like the weather, August throws a few curveballs, too -- with deals on a couple of things you might not necessarily expect. (Think tools and spa visits).

Want to save a little money while you're keeping your cool this month? Here are at least 15 items on which you can find sales, deals and discounts in August.
