What You'll Find Deals on This Fall

Cameron Huddleston

I have to replace two major appliances in my home. My washing machine barely washes anymore. And my dishwasher (which is so loud that it sounds like the Titanic setting sail) is on its last leg. The timing couldn't be better, though, because retailers usually mark down appliances this time of year.

New models of big appliances roll into showrooms in September and October, making autumn a great time to get a deal as stores clear out the old to make room for the new. Fall also is a good time to find bargains on grills, airfare, landscaping plants and more.

See Best Buys of Fall for our list of ten items that typically go on sale now.
