Labor Day Sales for the Home + The Best Things to Buy in September

We hope you're gearing up for a fun and relaxing 3-day weekend to celebrate Labor Day. If you have some downtime and are interested in perusing the holiday sales, it's a good weekend for furniture, decor and appliance sales. Check them out along with some of the smart buys for the month of September.

Labor Day Sales

If there's a company you particularly like, chances are they're having a sale around the 3-day holiday weekend so if you have your eye on something, take a look at their website this weekend. Decor lovers will be pleased to know that the furniture and home goods industries embrace the holiday as a time for sales so it's a good time to find deals on furniture, accessories, and appliances (see below).

Major Appliances

Except for refrigerators which are released in the spring, new models of dishwashers, washers, dryers and stoves hit stores in early fall prompting retailers to put older models on sale. If you've been thinking of an upgrade, September is a good time to get a deal, especially as part of a Labor Day promotion.

Early fall is a good time to buy plants since nurseries and garden centers are looking to unload inventory before cold weather sets in. Look for perennials or shrubs that can be planted in the fall or tropicals that you can keep indoors for the winter. Pots and other gardening accessories are often on discount so it may be worth stocking up for spring.

Where to look: your local nursery, garden centers at Walmart, Lowes, & Home Depot.


By and large, nice bikes are still sold through dealers rather than online (although that is beginning to change). September is a great time to save on an expensive bike purchase if you're willing to get an older model instead of the new crop of bikes about to be released. Also, September is a good time to buy warm-weather biking clothes.

Apple Products

Apple typically unveils new products and product updates in September (the iPhone 6s is expected to be unveiled Sept. 9th, for example) so keep you eyes open for sales on the current generation of Apple Products. If you're comfortable buying from an individual, look for people to unload their old Apple gear on eBay and Craigslist.

Where to look: MacMall, BestBuy, eBay, Craigslist
