A month of sales

Labor Day is coming and so are those end-of-summer sales.

From back-to-school bargains to preholiday clearance specials, September's Labor Day weekend kicks off a month of sales and specials -- a time dear to shoppers' hearts, especially if the goal is to save a little green while splurging.

"September is a weird month because it's when the stores are trying to get rid of excess so they can restock for the holidays," says Hillary Mendelsohn, author of "thepurplebook: The Definitive Guide to Exceptional Online Shopping," and founder of thepurplebook.com, an online shopping guide.

But for savvy consumers, it can mean some good deals and deep discounts if they shop smart and know where the deals are.

Here are six categories where you can score a deal over Labor Day weekend and throughout September.
