BUFFALO, NY - You probably hate me right now for even mentioning winter after that summer-filled weekend we just enjoyed, but today is THE day to buy a snow blower, snow thrower, or any of the other two items on my list today.

Prices are only going to shoot up from here. Stores know that once it gets colder and people start shopping out of necessity, they can charge whatever they want and still get the sale. So today, if you can bear it, I highly recommend one of the following deals hunted down overnight.

A big thank you my good friend and bargain hunter Katie Camacho for some great insider advice. I wish you a speedy recovery and a quick recuperation!

As usual, if the deals below don't appeal to you, or you want more, I'll be sending them out later via Twitter. CLICK HERE
