Deal Diva: Best things to buy in August

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - If you decided to pass on the busy tax free holiday last weekend, don't worry.

There are still plenty of deals and savings to take advantage of for the entire month of August.

The back-to-school deals will continue throughout the month and so will the sales on laptops. However, those are just a few of the best things to put your money toward this month.

Just like Black Friday, the back-to-school sale is one of the best times of the year to purchase a laptop computer. Retail experts say brands like Dell and Lenovo saw at least an 11 percent drop in prices. Stores like Best Buy will offer sales throughout the month of August.

Back-to-school sales are abundant. If you can't find all the supplies on your child's list, keep checking even when school starts. Retailers like Target will continue to restock shelves and offer low prices into the September.

It doesn't feel like it now, but summer is coming to an end, so keep an eye out for summer clearance sales on apparel, shoes and accessories.

According to some retail experts, stores like Children's Place, JC Penney and Kohl's are just a few that offered some of the best sales in August last year.

Go ahead and splurge on that patio furniture this month. Check around to find great deals on outdoor tables, chairs and umbrellas, and look for deep discounts on fire pits and hammocks.

Labor Day is Sept. 3, but be sure to spot those early Labor Day sales this month. Stores like Kohl's, Home Depot and Dick's Sporting Goods offered big sales ahead of the holiday sale weekend.

Aug. 11 is the National Garage Sale so bargain hunters should really keep their eyes peeled for the secondhand swag. Also, think about selling your own unwanted and unused items.
