(ABC 6 News) – Between Labor Day, back-to-school shopping, and the seasonal shift from summer to fall, September is a month chock-full of money-saving opportunities!

Consumer Reports tracks the prices of many of its top tested products all year long, so it knows exactly when they go on deep discount.

“To kick things off this month look for Labor Day sales on large appliances like refrigerators and washing machines, and then throughout the month you’ll also see a lot of sales around seasonal items,” says Consumer Reports’ Samantha Gordon.

Take advantage of those Labor Day sales on appliances with a new refrigerator.

The LG fridge is as low as $1,166 at Appliances Connection.

CR says this 28-inch-wide bottom-freezer refrigerator did well in its tests for thermostat control, energy efficiency, and noise.

Next, a washing machine that won’t break the bank.

The LG Top-loader is as low as $798 at The Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Wayfair

This washer received excellent scores in CR’s tests for energy efficiency, water efficiency, and vibration.

And whether it’s wildfire smoke, allergies, or virus protection, keep the air clean with an air purifier.

The BlueAir Blue Pure 211i Max is as low as $279.99 at Best Buy

CR says this model scored excellent overall in its tests, removing dust and smoke from its test chamber.

Take your tailgate to the next level this year with a great grill.

The Weber portable grill is as low as $273.12 at Amazon.

And finally, as the days get shorter, maybe a smart speaker can help make your at-home time a little more enjoyable.

The Amazon Echo Show 8 is as low as $74.99 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Dell.

Have a great September.
