What to buy in September

Nixa You know September is a great time to buy anything for your lawn.
Expect deep discounts on grills, outdoor furniture and yard tools.
But ... there are more savings to be had.

1. Bikes

Hit the pavement or beaten path with a new two-wheel ride. Big bike brands release the new models in the fall. So you'll see price drops on last year's frames. For bikes, research shows more savings in September compared to the holiday season.

2. Book a cruise

September is a great time to book a last-minute cruise. Expect low dollar deals during a not-so popular travel time.

3. Buy a used iPhone phone

iPhone fans rejoice. The new iPhone 8 is expected to hit store shelves later this month. Now is the time to buy a previous generation -- prices will be slashed.

4. Buy coffee

National Coffee Day is Sept 29. Your favorite cup of Joe might be free that day. Watch for coupons and promotions later this month.
