What To Buy When!

First of all the key is timing. Work with manufacturer discounts, clearance sales, off-season discounts and coupon and discount codes!

Electronics: A lot of electronics are made in Japan. The best time to get good deal is in the spring as they try to unload old inventory for the new fiscal year. Look at big screen TV’s before the Super Bowl too! For home theaters, in general the holidays can be a good time and January. Computers, a good rule of thumb is the middle of summer to take advantage of the back-to-school sales or winter holiday markdowns.

Furniture: The best time to buy furniture is Feb-April and Aug-October. So do some planning and look around during these times, you'll find the deals.

Toys: Obviously the holiday season is one of the best times to buy toys. The problem with the holiday season is that everyone else is buying then too and you might not find what you want. Try the end of summer clearance and October!

Cookware: One is in the spring, in April and May, coinciding with the graduation and wedding season. The other is in October and November, with promotions in regard to the holidays.

Clothing: Off-Season, clearance, and try going on Thursdays. If you wait until the weekend you're likely to find other folks ransacking for the best deals and selections which means things have been picked through. And don’t forget to bring coupons!

Appliances: Best time is September and October as new models are coming out.

Wedding Gowns: November

Car: First, shop online. You can find out the price of cars online and even locate what and where to buy what you want. Next, the next year's models come out in early fall and to make room - yes you guessed it again - the old inventory has to go. Shop in the early fall. Go at the end of the month - it's all about quotas. If the dealership has made their monthly quotas, they are likely to make a deal. The end of the year again is another great time as they are trying to get rid of all the old inventory.

Food & others:

January: Chocolate, soda, diet foods, frozen finger foods,linens, small appliances, air conditioners, carpeting, winter clothes, bikes, Christmas decorations, motorcycles, boats, sports and weight loss

February: Chocolate, steak, seafood(post Valentine's Day),oatmeal, boats

March:FrozenFoods, easter meal items i.e. eggs, ham, gardening items

April: Candy, eggs, ham, cheese, frozen pies, cake mix, electronics, vacuums, cookware, tires and auto supplies

May: Barbecue items i.e. hot dogs, beef, condiments, ice cream, party supplies, grill supplies

June: Ice cream, popsicles, soda, pianos, building materials, tools

July: BBQ items, chips, grill supplies

August: Cereal, breakfast bars, peanut butter, lunch meat, cold lunch items, yogurt, pool supplies, outdoor toys, bathing suits, summer clothes

September: Cereals, back to school snacks, hamburger, hot dogs, condiments, spaghetti sauce, cars, lawn mowers

October: canned fruits and veggies, dried fruits, stock up on holiday foods and soups and broths, large appliances, lawn mowers

November: Turkey, butter, cheese, canned goods, baking goods, cookware, tools, carpeting

December: Ham, butter, cheese, post-holiday sales, baking goods, some electronics, toys, winter clothes

Gift Idea For Almost Nothing!

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

My sister-in-law each year for gifts always adds a "personal touch", those to me that mean the most. At Michaels you can pick up small calendars for 2010 in the $1.00 bin or mouse pads and insert your favorite pictures in it. The calendars have a different theme border for each month and I love these!!!! It's even nicer when someone does it for you as a gift. Two great and affordable sites to have your pictures downloaded and sent to you is Snapfish and Kodak.
To even make this a sweeter deal, I just signed up for Michaels newsletter and received a instant 40% off coupon for any one regular price item. I'd assume this coupon would apply.

Special include:

Free Shipping on Prints

Prepay and save!

Holiday Seasons are just around the corner! Are you ready?

It has finally happened we now have a Target Coupon Policy online that we can take into the store with us when we shop.

Print the policy and make sure that you bring it when you shop at Target because it will alleviate many problems that you may face or already be facing.

Here is the information:

Target Stores Coupon Policy

Coupons are a great way to save even more when shopping with us, and it's easy to use them at our stores.

•Target accepts one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item (unless prohibited)
•Super Target coupons can be used in any Target store if the store carries the item
•We gladly accept valid internet coupons

Because of the variety of coupons available to our guests, we do have some guidelines for how coupons can be redeemed at Target.

When accepting coupons, we use the following guidelines:

•We accept two kinds of coupons: Target-issued coupons and manufacturer-issued.
•We'll accept one Target coupon and one manufacturer coupon for the same item, unless either coupon prohibits it.
•Coupon amount may be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied.
•We can't give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item.
•We can't accept coupons from other retailers, or coupons for products not carried in our stores.
•All valid coupons should be presented to the cashier while you're checking out.
