Labor Day weekend carries a lot of baggage. For some people, it's the last weekend with the kids before school starts. For the panicked, it's summer's last gasp. For others still, it's just a weekend with a little extra time away from the boss. It might even be a weekend you cross the northern lights off your bucket list. 

However, you shouldn't forget that it's also a day to celebrate the advances and successes of the American labor movement. You know, little things like the eight-hour workday and the right to organize. It's also, like every holiday, been earmarked by stores as a time to host a sale. (In addition to all the Labor Day food deals and back-to-school sales available.) Everyone needs time to gather up the necessities for survival. Housing, food, athleisurewear. You'll get those at places like Old Navy, Sears, Lowe's, and Pier 1. 

You won't spend any time laboring (yes!) over what Labor Day sales are worthwhile. That's because we've got all the best ones piled up right here for you to browse before you head out the door. You're free to use the list as long as you're really, really nice to anyone who has to work on Labor Day.
