Do you plan to spend your Labor Day weekend shopping? If so, there are certain things that you’ll find great deals on as the calendar flips from August to September. Our power-shopping colleagues down the hall at Consumer Reports recommend looking for gas grills, digital cameras, bicycles, and small electronics. Our friends over at Rather-Be-Shopping would add mattresses, baseball equipment, pool toys, and model year 2014 cars to that list. [Rather-Be-Shopping] [Consumer Reports]
Rising gas prices be darned, it’s Labor Day weekend and that means travelers are getting ready to hit the roads, rails and airways of our fair country in one last attempt to savor the summer. The Automobile Association of America says about 33 million Americans are preparing to venture 50 miles or more from home this weekend, which is a 2.9% increase from last year.
