ยท 4 min read

Of course, the best deals on back-to-school items will be available in August. Plus, now is a wonderful time to fill your pantry with lunchbox essentials like fruit snacks, cereal, and more.

Also, keep an eye out for discounts on college student bedding (or simply plan to use these sales to buy new twin-sized sheets for your kids).

You should absolutely bookmark JoinSavvy.com in order to stay up to date about the latest deals and get your hands on coupons and promo codes, needed to get a lot of these prices.


1. When back-to-school supplies are at their lowest, stock up.

The best time to purchase everything on your child's school supply list is during back-to-school discounts, which run rampant through August.

To get the best deal, make a schedule to shop frequently and at a few different places.

Some retailers, like Walmart, have fantastic sales going on without the need for coupons. However, you can utilize a coupon from Crayola or Elmer's, for instance, to further reduce the cost. Watch out for Savvy coupons that you may combine with sales prices and manufacturer coupons as well!


2. Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty kicks off around the end of August.

Starting in late August, Ulta will have one of its biggest deals of the year. Two or more goods every day, each discounted by 50%, are available throughout the three-week beauty sale. The discounted items are only available for 24 hours before being replaced the next day with two new ones. We anticipate that Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty sale will start on August 28 and last until September 17 this year.

The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale happens twice a year. In March, keep an eye out for the winter/spring sale.


3. Labor Day deals at Lowes and Home Depot will start around Thursday, August 25.

Don't wait until September to shop for your patio and yard's final discounts. Labor Day deals at Lowe's and Home Depot start in late August. Both are anticipated to start this year on August 25, 2022.

The Lowe's Labor Day sale will feature grills and patio furniture at the lowest rates of the year. Until Black Friday, appliances won't be this affordable again. The Labor Day sales at Lowe's and Home Depot will last all the way up to that day.


4. Take advantage of Kohl's biggest clearance event of the year.

Items at Kohl's are discounted by up to 70%! Additionally, keep an eye out for a chance to stack coupon codes at Kohl's to grab shoes, clothes, and whole bedding sets for incredibly low prices.


5. Look for clearance swimsuit sales for next summer — size up for youngsters!

Swimsuits are heavily discounted in August even though most of the country is still experiencing 90-degree temperatures. Stores are making way for back-to-school and aseasonal products.

So, stock up on swimsuits in next year's sizes for your kids (and maybe a few extra for yourself).


6. Purchase fresh corn on the cob and freeze it.

August is the month when corn on the cob is in season and when it is most affordable.

At Walmart, search for prices between $0.25 and $0.33 per item and purchase a six-month supply! It can be put in the freezer and used during the winter.


7. To save significantly, buy cereal while it's on sale and use a manufacturer coupon.

Another breakfast item we notice going on sale in August, just before kids return to school, is cereal. Plus, since cereal is shelf-stable, we advise purchasing enough to last a full six months.

The best way to find cereal bargains is to search for a sale price you can combine with a manufacturer's coupon


8. Buy fruit snacks for a dollar.

Before you reach for the last bag and realize you need to go to the grocery store on a busy school night, stock up on fruit snacks now.

Find coupons that you can use in conjunction with sales, as we did at Target.


9. August 24 is National Waffle Day.

Discounts at diners like IHOP, grocery store brands like Eggo, and even ice cream parlors promoting waffle cone deals will be available on National Waffle Day.


10. You can also purchase your first Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte before the month is over.

Pumpkin Spice Latte fans eagerly anticipate word about the debut of the well-known Starbucks seasonal beverage, with August 1 acting as the unofficial start of pumpkin season. The launch of Starbucks' fall menu is anticipated on August 30. PSL lovers, get ready!
