October is a time of change and one of my favorite months of the year. It’s when leaves fall off trees, kids walk around in spooky Halloween costumes, and the weather is just starting to get cold.
Living in Idaho, I find fall is to be really beautiful. It is one of my favorite seasons. In fact, not only is it one of my favorite seasons, but it’s also the time of year when you can find big savings on common items that we all need to buy.
So, for October, I have researched and categorized everything you need to know about what to buy in October!
Things You Should Buy In October
Okay, let’s get started. I am sure that you are all so anxious to hear about what to buy in October. Usually we just think about Black Friday when we think of fall shopping. Black Friday is great, but to be honest, the real deals are starting now and you don’t need to wait.
#1 Halloween Costumes/Decor
This may sound counter-intuitive, but hear me out. In October, stores often OVER anticipate the costumes and Halloween decor they will need for the season. They end up being overstocked in costumes, candy, decor, and everything else under the sun that may pertain to the Halloween season.
SO, unlike the rest of America, don’t do your Halloween shopping during the end of September and beginning of October. You should put it off until the 30th or 31st. Stores will see how much they have left and they will start to have discounts.
Yes, this does sound like a risky strategy, however you could prepare now and buy Halloween stuff for NEXT year when this season is over. There are always great deals on Halloween items starting the 31st and running into November until everything runs out. You can probably get 50% OR MORE off all your Halloween gear!
#2 Great Time To Buy Cars
Auto dealers are getting in stock the brand new models and they need to get the old models off the lot. If they haven’t gotten the old models out in September, they will be offering amazing deals to get them out the door by October.
Usually these deals only apply when you are buying the older model year. Newer models won’t go on sale until the end of the next model year. In addition to sales, they often offer incentives like no down payment! Be sure to shop around and choose the best deal for you!
PRO TIP: I have a friend who used to be a car salesman and he told me that all car salesmen have goals and marks they need to hit. So, go to the dealership at the end of the week or the end of the month, because if they haven’t hit their goals, they will be willing to work extra hard with you!
Oсtоbеr іѕ the month whеrе аll tоurіѕt рlасеѕ finally gо into off-season and lоwеr thеіr prices! Plаnе tickets, еntrаnсе fееѕ, buѕ tickets, аnd food іѕ oftentimes WAY сhеареr starting іn Oсtоbеr.
