The first day of fall is almost upon us and more than likely, you already went on a back-to-school shopping trip. As the season changes and new inventory makes its way into the stores, it’s a good time to consider shopping for your home as well. Here are some items worth watching for.
End-of-the-summer sale items
Whether it’s clothes, plants or outdoor patio furniture, you can start buying this summer’s products now for less. Make a list of items you need or want for next year, and take advantage of the lower prices this fall.
If you’re like me and you enjoy seasonal decor, start decorating for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving now. Before you know it, winter will be here and your fall decor will have to be put away until next year.
Here in Minnesota, winters can be brutal. But even if you live in an area where winters are mild, you’ll still want to prepare your home for chillier weather. Search for new curtains, blankets and sheets that are thicker and warmer than what you are using now. Curtains should be thermal insulated or made from a heavier material like velvet to keep warm air inside your home. Bedding that is down filled always proves to be a good barrier against winter chill. You can also keep warm by filling your wardrobe with sweaters, coats and other winter wear.
Appliances can get expensive, but because new models usually come out in the winter, you can start buying this year’s models for lower prices. Need a new oven or microwave? Start shopping this fall to get the best deals.
