Tai and Tarin Perry, aka The Double Saving Divas, stopped by the WCL studio to share some great tips on how to find deals as summer drawls to a close, and autumn looms around the corner.

Make the most of End of Summer Markdowns and look for great deals on the following:

  • Outdoor items: Lawnmowers, Bikes, Grills, Camping Equipment, Outdoor furniture
  • Clothes: All summer wear, swimsuits, and sandals
  • Trees & Plants (There's still time to garden before the winter comes!)

    Example Deals:

  • Home Depot has 50 percent off select patio furniture and gas & charcoal grills IN-STORE right now. For online deals, click here: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?pn=SF_OD_PR_Outdoors_Offers&langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&cm_sp=OD-_-Hero-_-Dogear1-_-ShopThisWksSpecials
