MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new month means new deals. September is the perfect time to grab up any outdoor gear as we tearfully say goodbye to summer.

You can score some great deals on tents and sleeping bags as stores clear out their inventory to make room for fall and winter goods.

Many bike shops are also looking to move out older products around this time of year.

You’ve got plenty of options if you’re looking for a new patio set. Outdoor furniture sales and deals jump in the month of September. Check out places like Target, K-Mart and Sears for discounts of 50 to 70 percent off.

And these next few days are also the time to score on a new smartphone. Apple reportedly plans to announce their newest iPhone next week. Retailers like Walmart have already slashed prices on older iPhone models to as cheap as one single penny. A new iPhone 5s is expected to drop to under $100.
