BC Predicts: August 2015 Baby Bargain Forecast [Shoe Deals, Backpacks, More]

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 10.04.18 AMAugust brings a wrap-up of summer clearance sales, a crop of fall clothing sales and the kick off of those wonderful fall consignment sales. Here’s what I expect to see this month, based on sales we saw in previous years.

  • Shop tax-free. Most states’ tax holidays are the first or second weekend of the month, just in time for back-to-school shopping. Here’s a state-by-state list of sales tax holidays. Check your local newspaper for more local details. Diapers may be tax free in your state–that’s a discount of 5% to 10% depending on where you live!
  • Deals abound on kids shoes in August. For example, Stride Rite’s BOGO 40% off sale started during the first week of August last year. Shoes.com‘s BOGO FREE sale is on now and wraps up tomorrow. During week three last year, 6pm.com had 60% to 80% off kids’ sandals. Amazon had a coupon for an extra 20% off kids; shoes near the end of the month.
  • And of course we’ll continue to see great BTS deals on clothes as well as deep discounts on summer gear. Gymboree’s $14.99 and under sale should start around the end of week one, for example. The Children’s Place ran an Extra 30% off deal in week two last year. Crazy8‘s BOGO .08 sale happened during week three.
  • We should see a free prints deal from Shutterfly around the end of the first week in August. Watch for a free cards offer around mid-month. We should see more great photo print and gift deals as Labor Day approaches.
  • Mid-month brought price cuts on Lands End lunch boxes and backpacks to the tune of over 50% off. We’ll also see even more fab deals on school uniforms around this time. Weeks three and four should bring even more deep discounts on backpacks and lunchboxes from Hanna Andersson, Pottery Barn Kids and others.
  • Disney Store‘s BOGO $1 sale started just after the 20th last year.
  • Look for Labor Day deals, sales and coupons to start up during the final week of the month. Watch for early sales at Gymboree, Gap, Old Navy, and other retailers. I’ll be publishing a big roundup of the best of the bunch near the end of the month.

Deals on second hand items:

  • Consignment stores start accepting fall clothing at the beginning of August. Time to cash in with last years’ winter clothes. Read about it here.
  • You’ll start seeing fall consignment sales this month, too. Check for sales in your area at Consignment Mommies or KidsConsignmentSales.com. Shopping consignment sales is a GREAT way to save money on baby items. It’s also a fun thing to do when you’re pregnant (not as fun with baby in tow). Many larger sales have websites. Check for special shopping hours for expectant moms and for “no strollers” shopping times.

For September: Labor Day baby sales (love those!).
