One of my favorite past times is reading. Recently, while reading Ladies Home Journal Magazine with Michelle Obama on the cover I came across a Save Money All Year Long article. It’s a “cheat sheet” on the best times to get a great deal on stuff you may need. Immediately, I was eager to read the tips and found them all very helpful, therefore, I wanted to share them with you all.
January: Start the year with clean sheets. Score linens and towels at a discount during January’s white sales.
February: Stock up on winter clothes, coats and snow boots, which go on sale now to make room for the spring clothes coming in March.
March: Small electronics like digital cameras from last year are cheaper in March because this year’s new models are usually just hitting stores.
April: You can typically find deals on cookware and other household items because retailers discount them for the wedding-gift crowd.
May: Yard sales and flea markets are held year-round but they really get into full swing when the weather gets nice in May.
June: Look for deals on gym memberships during the summer months when people start flocking outside to exercise.
July: Retailers use July Fourth (and every other holiday, for that matter) as an excuse to hold big sales on everything from cars to carpets. Take advantage!
August: Most summer gear goes on sale in August to make way for fall items. Buy grills, lawn furniture, gardening supplies, air conditions, even bathing suits, now.
September: These days you can find back-to-school deals on pretty much everything, which also makes it a great time to buy a new computer at a discount.
October: New home appliances are often introduced in the fall so you can buy last year’s models at a discount (a good deal since appliances rarely change drastically from year to year).
November: Holiday sales are starting earlier and earlier. Score a bargain this month on gift items such as toys and flat-screen TVs
December: The week after Christmas is the best time to get seasonal items at super-deep discounts. Buy next year’s holiday wrapping paper, ornaments and decorations now.
♥ Hope you enjoyed knowing when the best time to shop for deals as much as I have!! 🙂
