These popular items always go on sale in October. Wait to buy these popular items in October and you’ll save yourself a lot of money.
It is year-end for many retailers as they prepare for the coming holiday season. As a result, many items are cleared out at a discount to make room for new stuff. Take advantage of this fact and save yourself some big money in October.
Major Appliances are on Sale in October
There are price reductions on many major appliances from September through to November. First, new models are often introduced now, so this is a great time to buy last years model. In addition, many features on these items do not change much from year to year, so last year’s model can often be very similar the new year model. Finally, being ‘big ticket’ items, savings on major appliances bring big net dollar savings.
October is the best time to buy Shrubs, Trees, Bulbs and Perennials
The warmest days of the year are coming to an end. The increasing coolness of October heralds great deals on shrubs, trees, bulbs and perennials.
Retailers often have excess inventory of these items at this point of the year, so major savings can be had as they try to get rid of it.
Also, a large number of shrubs, trees, bulbs and perennials actually perform best if they are planted in the fall. Therefore, it is actually a good time to buy these particular items.
Clover is one of my favourite ground covers. It is a frugal favourite for many reasons. Buy clover seed on sale and plant it now.

October is the month to buy Cars, Car Parts, and Car Accessories
This is the month to save money on cars, car parts, and car accessories. Many new car year models are introduced in October. As a result, all things automotive tend to be discounted this month. Old inventory is sold at a discount to make room for all the new inventory and related accessories. Additionally, this is a great time to winterize your car and to purchase related winter accessories. Winter is coming soon, so save the money now while the savings are available.
Here are some of my other frugal automotive posts.
In summary, October is a good month to save money on many items. First of all, you can save money on major appliances because they are being replaced with ‘new’ models which are often not much different from the previous year’s models. Second, you can also save on trees, shrubs, and bulbs because their major buying season is over and retailers want to clear inventory. Finally, cars and accessories are also often significantly discounted as new models are introduced and old models are cleared out. Use the predictable seasonality of sales to save money all year-long.
