What's on sale in October

Forget trick or treat: With October sales and specials, it's more like hide and seek.

And that's nothing new. October, which is sandwiched between back-to-school shopping and the Christmas season, isn't "a heavy promotional month," he says.

So while the buys are there, you may have to spend a little shoe leather, or let your fingers do the walking across a keyboard to find them.

From some getaways to getting warm, here are six categories where you can usually find some good deals this month.
