The point of our “Beat the System” segments is to help you save money and make smart choices.
So today, on the last day of July, we’ve got a list of what not to buy in August.
First: patio sets. These go on sale in early fall, so the longer you wait, the lower the price will go.
Next: a new TV. Prices have dropped lately for 55-inch HD screens. 32-inch TV prices will probably drop next, but not yet.
Finally: tablets. For the last two years, Amazon released a new Kindle Fire each September. Wait a month to see if they do it again. Any time a new model comes out, the older ones get cheaper.
What is august a good month to go shopping for?
Back to school items, swimwear, and even a barbeque grill.
