It's time to grab your grill, lawnmowers, and outdoor pots and plants, too.

Swimsuits shorts and summer apparel will be on the clearance rack to make way for fall clothing, which will be full price during September but, retail expert Gina Curko advises at her store See Saw in Englewood Cliffs, it's worth the splurge to buy some basics which are versatile and will last.

"It's leggings and body wear, and fabrics are seasonless, let's invest in stuff that's not going out, that is quality, where fabric's not going to change," Curko said.
