The Best Labor Day Sales to Shop This Weekend

What better way to celebrate Labor Day and all your hard work this year than by shopping some serious sales over the long weekend? Hey, you worked hard for your money.

According to U.S. News, September is the best month to save on outdoor and patio furniture, camping gear, appliances, mattresses and clothes — and this year’s Labor Day sales absolutely reflect that. From saving anywhere from 20 to nearly 90 percent on select items on Amazon to scoring some serious deals at Target, JCPenney, Lowe’s and more, we’ve rounded up the best sales going on all weekend.
