    You can find some great discounts on summer items during the month of August.

    We found these great deals on Yahoo!

    1. Backpacks.  They're a staple. Look for deep discounts, coupons from major retailers, and even door buster sales to get great deals before your kids start school.

    2. Dorm Decor. If you have a college-bound student in the house, now's the time to look for discounts on dorm decor from retailers like Walmart and Target. And if no one in your family is near college age, take advantage of August deals on storage containers and linens.

    3. Lawn Mowers. Homeowners in most parts of the country won't need lawn mowers for much longer, so watch for retailers to mark them down. Gardening tools and other landscaping tools like tillers and weed eaters also go on sale this month.

    4. Summer Gear. Now's the time to buy a truly cheap swimsuit. You'll also find sales on outdoor furniture, yard décor, and barbecue grills.

    5. Seasonal Produce. The late summer harvest yields fruits like apricots, blueberries, grapes, kiwi, peaches, plums, and strawberries. Readily available veggies include corn, cucumbers, bell peppers, okra and tomatoes.
