Buying products

In the Bible, it says that everything has a season. Well, you can take that verse one step further and save yourself a ton of money! Every product on the market today also has a season. Swimsuits in the summer, jackets in the fall, snow blowers in the winter, and umbrellas in the spring, for example.

But, if you wait until the appropriate season to buy the product, then you're going to pay top dollar for a swimsuit or a snow blower! This is the result of the supply and demand rule. Therefore, every smart consumer knows that in order to save the most money, you should plan ahead and buy certain items at the best times every calendar year.

Note: Some items go on sale more than once a year. So, be sure to check the complete list to see what times are best to make the purchase.
