October Discounts


The holidays are right around the corner, and it looks like now could be a good time to cross some items off your list.

All year long Consumer Reports tracks the price of items in order to determine when is the best time to pick up some of your more expensive desires. For example October is the season of computers, gas grills and patio furniture. Plus around the Columbus Day weekend you can find deals on indoor furniture, large appliances and mattresses.

To help zero in on your must have items consumer reports has a list of the nine items that you should pick up over the next few weeks. First up is bicycles. Since outdoor riding season is over for most of the country stores are offering a deep discount on bikes, both mountain and road. That same logic applies to grills and outdoor furniture.
