What to Stock Up on in October
This month will be a good month for sales on not only candy but for all things related to Halloween. The deals should be plentiful on costumes, Halloween decorations, and of course Halloween candy. If you have candy you like to use in your holiday baking now would be the time to grab extra while it’s on sale.
October starts the last three months of the year and the start of the holiday season. It’s time to start thinking about making your Thanksgiving meal and Christmas dinner along with all those delicious Christmas goodies too. You can stock up now on those baking items you’ll need and save. Most baking items have a fairly long shelf life and will keep without any problems until you are ready to start your holiday baking.
Cold/ Flu Medicine
Cold and flu season is sure to be starting soon. Be sure to stock up on the medication before you need it. This month there should be good sales and coupons to match those sales so you can be prepared for this winter’s cold and flu season.

In October we fall back and it’s also the time we are reminded to check our smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors too. You should find good deals on batteries, smoke detectors, and other items related to this time change.
October is a good month to find deals on jeans. The weather is getting cooler and with the back to school sales done, there’s lots of jeans leftover. Grab a few pairs of jeans while they are on sale. It would be a great time to grab a few pair of extra jeans for the kids for Christmas presents too.
