Shopping 101 in October

Fall is just about the best time of year to give your closet a little makeover or decorate your room for Halloween. Wherever your credit card takes you, I’ve got some shopping tips for you to save some money in the month of October. Although the trees are starting to look bare, your wallet sure doesn't have to.

1. Stock up on jeans.

Retailers will start discounting jeans around this month. Currently, Levi’s, Charlotte Russe, American Eagle, and Calvin Klein have some great sales going on!

2. All things outdoors...

Camping gear, fishing equipment, or even tree hammocks will be discounted. You can say goodbye to summer, but that doesn't mean you can't prepare for next year. Check out REI for 25% already reduced clearance items before it’s too late!

3. DO NOT buy electronics.
