The end of summer always sneaks up on us. For some reason, every year, despite our many shared bottles of rosé, taste tests of inventive new ice cream treats, and no-cook meal escapades, we’re always surprised when suddenly it’s time for our last BBQ of the season. We have mixed feelings on the subject because while we’re sad to leave warm weather and all the fun activities (and specialty eats that come with it) behind, the start of fall is always exciting — and not just because it’s pumpkin spice season.
Whether or not your looking forward to cooler weather and pumpkin-flavored everything, there is one thing that everyone can look forward to this weekend: Labor Day sales. There are sales going on in pretty much every category, from clothes to gadgets, but we’re specifically focused stocking up our kitchens. Wayfair, Overstock, Macy's, and JC Penny are all offering stellar deals on kitchen gadgets and other food-related essentials. So, if you're in need of an end of summer pick-me-up, this might be the perfect time to grab that immersion blender you’ve had your eye on. Or, maybe you can’t wait for the cooler months to hit, so you want to score a cheap slow cooker. Whatever the reason, we rounded up the best sales we could find.
Click through to check out the best prices for online (and in store) shopping this weekend. While you scroll, sip on your choice of a goodbye cold brew or a first of the season fall-spiced latte. It might be the only weekend of the year where it’s completely normal to order either or. Happy Labor Day and happy shopping!
