It's a brand new month and that means brand new deals!

August is the last gasp of summer and it brings with it a fresh crop of savings - starting with summer clothing.

If you are looking to replenish shorts and tees, this is the time. Our friends at Deal News say expect savings up to 75% off.

Some of these things can be worn for a few more months. And as we inch closer to September, they will add back to school items to the mix, like jeans and sneakers.

Sorry to burst your bubble kids, but that means back to school savings.

Even if you don't have the official list from your school yet, you can save on the basics.

And good news for procrastinators, the longer you wait, the deeper the discounts because retailers unload excess inventory and ramp up clearance racks as we advance towards September.

For back to college kids, Deal News says August brings big sales on all dorm room needs - especially linens.

Sheets, towels and even decor will be marked down as we head closer to the start of the fall semester.

If you are looking for new electronics, whether for your student or yourself, the time to buy is now.

Deal News say that back to school sales offer the best prices outside of Black Friday.
