Sales. Everyone loves sales these days. If you’re trying to save money on home improvement , here are some ideas for what to buy in August and September.

Patio Furniture. While the hot weather has just hit parts of the country, home improvement retailers are always working on their buying cycles. Out with the old season–in with the new. Here are a few tips for buying patio furniture now:

  • Measure your space and use a string to outline furniture locations. This helps you zero in on the right size pieces.
  • Consider odd lots to fill a few niches. An extra chair or table can come in handy and is typically discounted.
  • Find the material that works for your style (wrought iron is more formal; wicker more casual) and budget. Here’s more from Myidealgarden.com.

Kitchen Appliances and More

Kitchen appliances also go on sale this time of year, as retailers try to move out the current model year and make room for the new one. Just make sure the range or wall oven has the features you want and is the right size and color. Here are more tips on buying kitchen appliances from the University of Illinois Extension Service.

Other household products to consider buying now are window air conditioners, lawn mowers, edgers, and pools. If you’ve always wanted a mulching lawnmower, now is the time to investigate this home improvement gem.

Check Your Remodeling Contractor for Deals

Products related to outdoor living may also be discounted now. Check with your remodeling contractor to see if there are deals on patios, decks, and outdoor lighting.

While it’s tempting to lounge by the pool right now, there are home improvement deals to be had. Don’t let the heat keep you from a great deal.
