What’s The Deal? The 3 Best Things to Buy in October

The month of October is about falling leaves, falling temperatures, and falling price tags. Jimmy Rhoades and Rather Be Shopping’s Kyle James have three things to buy that will be at rock-bottom prices.

1.  Jeans

Denim is always a hot seller for back to school. The problem is that a lot of stores over buy, and they have a lot of excess inventory. In October they’re willing to mark down a lot of jeans from 30 to 60 percent. You will also find a lot of buy-one get-one free offers.

2.  Consumer Electronics

A lot of new models start rolling out in anticipation of big holiday shopping days that are coming up. That means last season's models are going to be marked down to make room for the new stuff. While early adopters pay a penalty for having the newest models, people willing to have the next-to-newest model can score big savings.

3.  Homes

People that weren't able to sell their house in the summer start to reduce their price a little bit around October. Historically, home prices have dropped close to three percent in the month of October, so it's definitely worth looking at. The average home price is two point six percent lower, which can save you thousands now, and thousands more in interest over the course of a 30-year mortgage.
