I love September! From Labor Day sales (get it, “labor”?) to baby proofing and car seat deals for Baby Safety Month and Child Passenger Safety Month, you’ll find some of the year’s best discounts on baby gear this month. Here’s what I expect to see this month, based on sales we saw in previous years.
Labor Day Sales
You can take a look at all the Labor Day sales here.
- Watch for a BOGO FREE Fisher-Price toy sale at Toys R Us near the end of week one.
- We often see deals on Fisher Price toys mid-month. Kmart had 25% off Laugh and Learn toys at mid month last year. Kohl’s ran a 40% off deal for FP toys near the end of the month.
- Mattel toys ran a “Black Friday in September” sale around the end of the third week of the month last year with deals on Fisher Price, Barbie and more.
- Fisher Price also ran a free shipping day during the final week of the month at their site.
- The last week of the month brought 40% off select Fisher-Price toys at Amazon last year. It was their daily deal.
- We also saw extra deep discounts on FP toys at Kohls last year just before the end of the month.
Baby Sales and Other September Sales
- Target’s Baby Sale starts this weekend and should run for about a week. 25% off strollers and more.
- Don’t miss Old Navy’s Baby Sale around the middle of of week one. Everything for baby was 30% off, and maternity items were 25% off.
- Keep an eye on Shutterfly. If we’re lucky, we should see a free photo book deal toward the end of next week.
- The Children’s Place ran a baby sale starting at the end of week one last year. Save up to 50%. There should be a coupon worth 15% off or so released in conjunction with the sale.

Have you noticed that all the online retailers have their Halloween costumes up? Are you wondering if you should buy now? The answer is no, unless there’s something super particular you want and you’re afraid to miss out.
Expect discounting on Halloween costumes to begin around the first of October. It will start at 25% to 30% off and increase weekly. In the meantime, check out this post: Finding Scary-Good Deals on Second Hand Halloween Costumes
Consignment sales continue (see listings here). Garage sales pick up as the weather cools off.
