October is Halloween month! Which should really thrill you if you like sugar highs and dressing up like Batman. Look for specials on candy and Halloween themed items, particularly after the 31st (known in the biz as “November”). You’ll also start seeing sales on baking supplies, so start stocking up for the holiday season. Other things that often inspire sales during October include National Seafood Month, the end of Daylight Savings Time (batteries, smoke detectors, etc.) and a wide range of other “National” holidays featuring everything from pizza to pork (see the list below).
