This week in deals: Extra 40% off all orders at Sierra Trading Post

Summer is still here, but it's also that time of the year to start getting ready for fall, Halloween and the holidays. I know it's really hard to get into that mindset, especially when it's a boiling 105 degrees outside (Well, at least in Southern California it is), but if you start planning right now, you'll definitely thank yourself later.

And because retailers are stocking up for the new season, you can score some amazing deals on summer items, as well as many others. Take a look at this week's top five deals:

Deal #1: Whether you need outdoor gear, sporting goods or things for your home, right now, use thiscoupon from Sierra Trading Post to save an extra 40% off your entire purchase. Fall is right around the corner, so this coupon will come very handy. Expires 10/06/2013. 

Deal #2:
 Most people had their last hoorahs for the summer last week, but the celebrations just started because the summer sales couldn't be sweeter after Labor Day. With this coupon from Ann Taylor, you can save an extra 50% on sale swimwear. So stock up on your beachwear for next year or maybe for that tropical getaway you'll be taking during this winter vacation. Expires 09/28/2013.

Deal #3: If you need to update your look for the fall, whether it's changing out the color palette for your eyeshadow or getting a new hairstyling tool, use this coupon from Sally Beauty Supply to save $5 off your purchase over $25. Plus, combine the sale prices from September Sale Flyer to get additional savings. Expires 12/31/2013.

Deal #4: Since fall and winter are right around the corner, you may want to switch out your summer bedding and get something more cold weather appropriate. With this coupon from JCPenney, you can save 50% off bedding, bath, window and luggage. Expires 9/12/2013.

Deal #5: If you're looking to buy some boots for the fall or winter, use this coupon from Payless to buy one and get 50% off on the second pair. Expires 9/26/2013.

Don't wait because before you know it, you'll be walking the kids for Trick or Treat, sitting down for a Thanksgiving meal and passing out Christmas gifts. It goes by like 1, 2, 3. See you next week, when I bring you five more incredible deals!
