This weekend might not feel like the end of the summer yet, but the arrival of September definitely might make it sound that way. Fortunately, the weather is still fairly hot across the country, so nothing is stopping you from having a pool party, summer soiree, or old-fashioned cookout. 

Instead of having people over, maybe this three-day weekend is an opportunity to rest, work on a DIY project, or enjoy a hobby. Either way, there are sales occurring at plenty of businesses for the holiday weekend, and this will give you a head start to preparing Halloween decorations (and costumes).
