According to this month's issue of Real Simple Magazine, October is the best time to buy jeans. Lindsay Funston reports that it's because "the rush for back-to-school clothes has ended, so retailers are cutting prices on leftover inventory" (193). And The Budget Fashionista predicts that stores will have excess denim this year because shoppers will be more frugal with their back-to-school purchases. Funston foresees 30-60% off retail prices and buy-one-get-one-free deals at some stores. We'll see! Bring on the fall savings!
