LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS) -- This year, Labor Day discounts could exceed those on black Friday, as retailers are looking to clear out inventory in advance of the fall holidays.

Sales this holiday weekend are expected to be huge and be available in far more product categories than usual.  Traditional home improvement and mattress sales will be joined by blowouts on electronics, as well as clothing and accessories for kids and teens.   Sales figures this Labor Day could be an important indicator of what retailers can expect in the upcoming holiday season.

USA Today says the best things to buy today are: Cars, furniture, clothing sheets, towels, and patio furniture or grills.

Some of the worst things you can buy today: Small electronics, big screen TVs, and gaming or DVD sets.
