September is one of my favorite months to enjoy my outdoor living area. It’s not too hot or too cold, and the turning foliage is an added bonus.

With Labor Day sales coming up, be on the lookout for summer clearance items and things you could possibly hang on to for next spring if you’re not able to use them this year.

Here are some of the top sales I discovered this week on Find&Save, all under the Home & Garden section.

Grills: Make your home the hot spot for fall BBQs and weekend tailgates. Now through August 27, save on Char-Broil Commercial Series grills at Lowe’s. This stainless stell wonder will be the perfect addition to your patio or deck. And bonus, it makes you look like a bad-to-the-bone grill master.

Fire Pit: Instant ambiance! Add a fire pit to transform even the most basic patio space into a cozy retreat. Roast s’mores with your kids or enjoy a glass of wine with a loved one. This “cocktail” size fire pit from Best Buy is on sale and ideal if you have a smaller outdoor space to work with.

Lounge Seating: Nothing is more inviting to hang out on your patio than a sunny Sunday afternoon and what better way to enjoy it than sprawled out on your outdoor seating area. Costco features a gorgeous selection of lounge seating areas, varying from 2-piece to 20-piece collections. How amazing does this space look? I see a great place for an afternoon nap or indulging in a good book.

Music to my ears: I must say outdoor sound systems are probably one of the greatest luxuries on the face of the Earth. Best Buy carries outdoor speakers that can be easily connected to your in-house surround sound system. These Yamaha natural sound, all-weather speakers are currently on sale and the key to relaxation.

If you’re in the market for an indoor system as well, make it a one-stop shopping trip to Best Buy. Just think you’ll be able to hear that big third-down play when you’re grilling outside.

And last but not least… Lawn Care: Keep your lawn in tip-top shape! The longer it’s green, the further away winter seems. Save now on lawn mowers, trimmers and riding mowers at Lowe’s.

Also, if your garden is still going strong, look to add some perennials that will continue to come back strong year after year. Both Big Lots and Target offer kits that come with a variety of flowers.

Remember, just because summer is winding down it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get out and enjoy your outdoor space. Host a Sunday brunch, throw a party for your favorite football rivalry game, or simply enjoy the great outdoor space, right next to home.
