What you should be buying (and avoiding) in October

October is a month filled with purchasing opportunities - candy, clothes, costumes - but buying it all could leave a scary dent in your wallet.

Here's what you should buy in October, and what you should wait on, according to USA today.

Buy: Jeans. This is a great time of year to buy jeans because the jacked up back-to-school prices have finally gone down, and now stores are just trying to get the older denim off the racks. A lot of stores even have half-off discounts or buy one get one free right now! (Hint: American Eagle and Express.)

Skip: Toys. Even though we haven't even thought about our Halloween costumes yet, stores are already marking up their toy prices in preparation for the holidays. The 2016 "hot toys" are height price right now and they will usually get discounted when December hits, because stores know that a lot of people won't want to wait until the last minute to shop. But wait to do your holiday shopping and you'll be able to get a lot more toys for your tots.

Buy: All things outdoors. It's cooling down so we're all headed inside to bundle up. But this means that all outdoor furniture, camping equipment and outdoor living essentials all go on sale. Need a new grill? It's a great time to buy.

Skip: Electronics. With black Friday just months away, your best bet on saving major bucks on all major electronics like laptops and cameras is waiting for the killer deals that day and even the weeks following.

Buy: Halloween Candy. For a ton of reasons... it's cheap, everywhere you look, Halloween themed, and you even have an excuse to eat it this time of year. Pig out.
