As we say goodbye to summer and officially welcome fall, October is a great month to find some frightfully good deals on everything from pizza to Halloween treats! Here are five of the best things to buy this month!
October is National Pizza Month! Expect to see special promotions and great discounts throughout the month at places like Domino’s, Papa Johns, and Pizza Hut, as well as your local pizzerias.
October is also National Seafood Month. Expect to see savings throughout the seafood aisle — fish, shrimp, scallops, and even crab and lobster.
3. Baking Supplies
With fall officially underway, October can oftentimes feel like the month that transitions us into the holiday mindset. To this end, you can expect to see sales on sugar, chocolate chips, pie crusts and filling, evaporated and condensed milk, and canned pumpkin, as baking season starts to pick up.
Big box retailers will begin massive markdowns on many of their toys to clear shelf space for the new inventory they’ll be bringing in for the holidays. You can easily score discounts of 50-75% on much of what you see in the toy aisles. With the holidays right around the corner, now is a great time to get an early head start on your Christmas shopping!
From candy to costumes, October is the month to buy your Halloween essentials. Try to wait as close to the 31st as possible to buy your trick-or-treating supplies, as retailers will often start discounting their Halloween inventory closer to the actual holiday. A good tip is to wait until the day after Halloween, when big box retailers massively discount their leftover Halloween inventory. You can score bags of candy, Halloween decor, yard inflatables, and costumes for 75-90% off. Buy now for next year, or stock up on candy to last you through the remainder of the year.
