It’s the end of summer, so everything you may need for the yard is on clearance. You’ll save as much as 75 percent anywhere outdoor furniture, grills and gardening tools are sold.
Now is a big sales time for car dealers. While the deepest discounts are yet to come, there’s still a reasonable selection on lots right now.
