Labor Day honors the achievements of U.S. workers and their contributions to the country's economy. The holiday originated in the late 1800s during a tough time in American labor history. This was at the height of the country's Industrial Revolution, and workers faced poor working environments and long days with low pay.
The movement ultimately bettered the American workplace for employees nationwide, but it wasn't until 1894 that Labor Day was made an official holiday to honor their work.
Alright, there are plenty of savings happening this weekend. Here are few categories in particular you should look out for.
The end of the summer means retailers are eager to get rid of season-related products. Expect clearance-level prices on popular summer items such as bathing suits, shorts, shirts and outdoor gear. Check out stores like REI, Dick's Sporting Goods and department stores.
Some back-to-school sales will cross over to the beginning of September, so if you missed out on deals in August, now's your chance to find something good!
September is when Apple typically announces new products. Naturally, older generation products begin to go down in price. Keep on the lookout throughout the month for deals from places like eBay.
