Take a deep breath… That is the smell of crisp autumn air, but also the smell of a great deal. As the leaves fall, so do the prices on certain products. Jimmy Rhoades is rounding up the hottest buys you can't pass up before September ends!

1.  School supplies

July and August are the two months that school supplies are in demand. In September you can start finding some great clearance deals, so it’s a smart idea to pick up these items now.

2.  Jewelry

February has Valentine's Day, May has Mother's Day, June as a ton of weddings, and October, November and December are driven by Christmas so that makes September one of the six months when jewelers will drop prices and make deals.

3.  Plants

Put down some roots! Outdoor nurseries want to liquidate their inventory before the snow flies, and the bonus? Fall is a great time to plant trees, shrubs, bulbs and perennials. Temperatures are cooler, the ground's still warm, and the work you put in now will mean you have a great looking yard come spring… at a discounted price.

4.  Cars

For big-ticket savings, AutoTrader Executive Editor Brian Moody says September kicks off the best time of year to buy a car because that's when the model years change.

In each of these categories, you're waiting until after the prime buying season, so inventory isn't being replenished. The trade-off is that what you gain in price, you lose in selection.
