| 0 TrackBacks
The ultimate best time to buy anything listAre there best times in the year to buy things? You bet! I have pulled to together my Ultimate Best Times To Buy List for you.

As you are going through this list remember that I am writing for my particular area, that has cold weather November through March and school starts in September. If you live in a region that is different from mine then your best sales might be the month before or after I have listed here.

The best thing about knowing when sales will be on is how you can plan to use a sale item from one season and repurpose it for another (flip flops bought on clearance in August and Champagne bought on sale in December can be used for a Spa Party you hold in February) . You save money by planning and thinking outside the box.

So here is my list and if you have anything you would like to add I would love to hear from you!

Knockoff curseThere is a joy to owning something that is made of quality. A Chanel bag, Gucci purse, Louboutin shoes. They shout to the world that you have money and style. But if you have to pinch pennies then the sad truth is that these items probably are out of your reach.
