While Labor Day may signify an end to summer for many, there are still plenty of weeks ahead for California natives to experience beautiful weather. This historic three-day weekend is the perfect opportunity to take full advantage of the sunshine, free time and great deals offered throughout your community. So, enjoy some rest and relaxation and appreciate the day that recognizes all of the Americans that are hard at work year-round. You deserve it!

Here are several gifts given to us during Labor Day weekend along with our suggestions for how to use them:


1. Sales

Black Friday may be more recognized as a day of discounts, but Labor Day actually offers some comparable, and quite possibly, better deals. Historically, Labor Day offers some of the lowest prices of the year for backyard items. If you’re fortunate enough to have great weather for a large portion of the year, this is the time to get the outdoor furniture, grill or umbrella that you’ve been eying. In fact, last year, Kmart reduced its entire collection of outdoor items by 90 percent!

Another great item to cash in on is a mattress. You’ll find discounts for up to 60 percent off. Further, Labor Day kicks off regular season football games and incentivizes customers to purchase televisions with discounts of up to 30 percent off. Also, if you’re a procrastinator that has put off purchasing back to school items thus far, you’ll see dirt-cheap prices over the long weekend.

If you’re looking for a deal that lasts year-round and works around your schedule, contact us.

2. Free Time

The extra day off is a great opportunity to tackle the home improvement projects that you’ve been putting off. With great weather guaranteed in most areas across the state, we suggest doing an outdoor project that allows you some time in the sun, as well. This may also mean organizing the house and making room for back to school supplies, class projects and seasonal sporting activities.

Have you made a visit to your storage unit recently? This is the weekend to do it. We’re open all weekend long! Clear out the clutter at home and store it with Price Self Storage.

3. Great Weather

Most areas of the state actually experience some of their best weather during the month of September. This weekend, take advantage of the numerous activities offered in your local area. It’s always nice to catch a baseball game or visit a national park, too!
