September bargains are a mashup: The best of summer meets the first taste of fall.
At the same time an abundance of tomatoes and grapes reaches the stores — with some of the best prices of the year — you’ll also see bargains on quintessentially autumn foods, like stew meat and butternut squash.
And you can score deals on the last of the summer goods, like lawn mowers, patio furniture and electric fans, while simultaneously finding buys on back-to-school tools, like printers and desktop computers.
And later this month, if you want an excuse to take a break and grab a discount, check out the specials at your favorite coffee bar on Sept. 29 — National Coffee Day.
Want to save a little money on things you need? Here are some grocery items — and a few household supplies — that will be on sale in September.
