FIVE THINGS TO BUY IN SEPTEMBER
Patio Furniture: Target and Sears took 60% of their
stock last year. Kmart slashed 90% off the price of
their patio chairs and tables.
New Cars: To make room for next year's models, dealers
will start slashing the price of 2013 models this
month. For an even better deal, wait until October.
An iPhone: With a new iPhone coming out, previous
generations of iPhones will receive a price cut.
Desktops: If you need the power of a desktop computer,
this is your month. Sales in September on desktops are
usually better than Black Friday deals.
Big-Screen HDTV: You should be able to snag a 55-inch
3D TV with built-in WiFi and app support for less than
$729. They may drop a bit more around the holidays, so
keep a sharp eye.
