October Best Buys: Clothes, Toys, Wine, Halloween Costumes

Jeanette Pavini

You may not realize it, but October is filled with some shopping bargains that may top even the busiest shopping month of November. So there's no reason you shouldn't start your shopping now. You can save money and avoid the chaos that is to follow as we approach the holidays. Here are some of the best items offering the best value for money this month.

There are still some great finds even though not all will make the Top 10 Toy List. By the first of the month, most stores have started their layaway programs, so make sure to sign up soon if you plan to use them.
