KGUN9's Samantha Cortese shows you the best and worst things to buy in August.
It's one of the best times to pick up school supplies, because stores are competing with one another to offer the best deals.
Outdoor maintenance products are also cheap, because summer is winding down and lowering demand. On that note, you should look for summer clearance sales that can help you stock up for next year.
Items you should avoid buying for now include major household items. Try to hold out until prices drop with Labor Day sales next month.
If you want a new iPhone, you are best off waiting until the next model is released so you can pick it up or wait for prices to drop on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
