Now is a great time to be gearing up for season’s end clearance sales.  Back to school sales are almost over, and stores will be anxious to clear out their summer products. Of course, for those of us in south Florida, we can use those summer products almost year-round. But, even if you can’t, consider buying kids clothes in a size too big for next year – shorts, tank tops, flip flops, swimwear, beach towels/supplies, etc.

But there are other items to consider as well. My kids need sunscreen all year long. And I’ve learned that the facial sunscreen sticks are not always easy to find in December!  So, sunscreen is another item to consider stocking (but be sure to check the expiration date).

This also would be a great time to check out the sales on lawn and garden items, camping gear, etc.  Start checking the prices now and if it’s still not as low as you’d like, check again during Labor Day Weekend when there are usually more great sales.

If you can, this is also a good time to get a jumpstart on your Christmas/Hannukah gift shopping.

All You Magazine August Coupon List – Bargain Briana has been kind enough to provide a list of coupons that will be in Walmart’s All You Magazine for September.  You can check it out here to see if you want to stop by and pick up a copy. I believe it retails for $2.49 per issue if you buy it at Walmart, but you can get a subscription for $1.66 per issue here.  However, I will tell you that sometimes the subscription version has less coupons than the newsstand version.
