Save Money by Shopping Strategically

 

Patience is not only a virtue; it can save you a lot of money when it comes to shopping.  Smart shoppers know that waiting pays off, especially when making major purchases.  That’s because many items are deeply discounted at certain times of the year.  Plan accordingly and the savings are yours to enjoy.

Here’s our list of traditional times to get the best deals, but be sure to check for specials year-round. And, download one or more of today’s many shopping apps so that you can price compare in real-time.
