PHOENIX -- When it comes to back to school items, August is the best time for discounts.
According to Dealnews.com retailers are fighting for your business and so they slash school stuff as much as they can.
The same goes for clothing. In fact, retailers that don't usually cater to the back to school crowds will step up deals on discounts to make room for autumn apparel.
And as far as finding a pair of jeans, the best deals are right now through mid-august, after that discounts tend to drop off.
If you're looking for a 32" HDTV for a dorm room or maybe your house, hold off if you can. If you can wait until September, prices will be even lower. Right now expect to pay anywhere between $230 to $280. But if this year is anything like last year, then September may offer deals below $200.00.
And if you're looking for new patio furniture, the end of August and perhaps September is the best time to buy. Retailers like Home Depot and Sears will be looking to clear out their stock while offering steep discounts some perhaps as high as 90%!
