Ugh, I don’t want to think about the fact it is August and summer is almost over. But this is also the time of year when the crops are being harvested and that means fresh berries, peaches, apples and corn – yum!

This is also the time of year Back-to-School sales are rolling out. So if you are getting a kiddo ready for a new school season or wanting to update your wardrobe, check out the sales circulars in today’s Times Leader for some great deals.

Macy’s, Kohl’s, Sears, and JC Penny, all are offering coupons for 15- to 20- percent off apparel, but be sure to read the coupons for any exclusions.

I also found, GAP is offering 40-percent off school uniform attire. Also, if you sign up for their email notification on sales you can get 25-percent off. Just go to www.gap.com.

Kmart is offering free lay away for club card members. Shoppers will also find Kmart has Route 66 boys’ jeans and pants, plus girls’ denim on sale this week for $10.

If you filling their pencil boxes, Kmart has 24-count Crayola Crayons and four-ounce Elmer’s Glue on sale for 25-cents. There is a five-item limit.

Digging through the mound of sales inserts (and there are a lot of them) in today’s Times Leader, I found some great deals on grocery items.

At the top of my list is a steal on Claritin. Fall allergy season is right around the corner, so find the $10 off manufacturer coupon on a 70 count of Claritin in the coupon inserts. Team this up with Rite Aid’s sale and get it for only $24.99. The coupon and sale are valid until August 10.

Thomas’ Foodtown has sweet corn on sale, buy 8 for $2. Bring the taste of the Jersey shore home with Nathan’s Beef Franks, 14-ounce package, on sale this week for $2.88. Be sure to show your club card to get the sale prices.

Did you know that August is National Peach Month? Price Chopper has sweet eastern peaches on sale this week for 99 cents a pound.

Savvy shoppers, keep your eyes open for an in-store coupon in Price Chopper’s sales flier for Folgers coffee, buy two for $5. Use your Price Chopper Advantage Card to obtain sales prices.

Gerrity’s Supermarket has a hidden sale value in their flier this week. They are offering $5 off if you purchase 10 selected Box Tops for Education products. Check out their sale’s circular for a list of products. To cash in on this, the purchase must be made in one shopping trip.

Soccer is starting up this month, so to fight those grass stains, take advantage of Gerrity’s Supermarket sale on All laundry detergent, fabric softener or dryer sheets on sale, buy two for $7. Team this up with a manufacturer’s coupon found in today’s Times Leader for $2 off the purchase of two.

You can also use a $1 off two coupon on Skippy Peanut Butter jars, 15 to 16.3 ounces, with Gerrity’s Supermarket sale price of buy two for $4 and save.

What goes great with peanut butter, why bread of course (you thought I was going to say jelly). Gerrity’s Supermarket has a sale on Maier’s Italian Bread, buy one get one free.
