Products currently sporting clearance tags may appear to be summer's leftovers. What's the point of picking up a new beach towel when days spent frolicking in the surf are about to become just memories? But with a little creativity, summer sale items can be suitable for year-round use. Hit a department store, grocery store, mom and pop store, or big-box store and see the potential in the items sitting on half-empty shelves or crowding the bins strategically placed to move merchandise out the door. Fill a cart with these end-of-summer bargains that can be cleverly reimagined and come in handy all year.
