There are so many reasons to look forward to this month! The weather cools off, pumpkin spice is everywhere, and there are lots of deals to be had.

October is a prime time to get a deal on a new 2018 vehicle. Now is the time when auto dealers are trying to make room for 2019 models.

You'll see lots of deals on summer clothes as retailers prepare for winter clothes.

Jeans are good any time of year and October is one of the best times to find deals.

This is also the last month you can expect to see big discounts on other summer stuff, including grills, camping gear and patio furniture.

But you don't want to pull out your wallet for everything this month, including big appliances, cookware, and electronics. You'll find better deals around Black Friday Season.

Finally Halloween supplies. You'll find better deals toward the end of the month, but not as many options, at least when it comes to costumes.
