What should you buy in October?

October 11, 2010

As we come out of the summer months, there are great deals to be had at your favorite shopping places. Here are our October recommendations:

  • Cars – model year 2011 are rolling into dealerships right now, make those 2009s look extra “old”.
  • Fishing gear – from ice fishing to fly fishing, all of the gear you will need is on sale now.
  • Winter clothes – check the clearance racks for last year’s winter wear, stores are trying to get rid of last years cold weather clothing right now to make room for the full priced jackets, scarves, gloves that will be on shelves as soon as the temperature drops.
  • Plants – visit your local nursery or garden center to score great priced perennials that just don’t look pretty anymore, just keep them from freezing over the winter and they will bloom for you in the spring.
  • Jeans – retail stores stock up on denim for the back-to-school season and now that studies have been going on for a couple of months, the leftovers jeans are ripe for the fall harvest.

A few more suggestions from the bloggers at LifeHacker.com for deals to score in October:

  • Big appliances
  • Cookware
  • Health insurance
  • Toys

Quick money saving tips

August 6, 2010

Hello Everyone,

I recently ran across a few great money saving tips. Let us know in the comments if you have ever done any tried of the tips!

Life Insurance:

“Pay your life insurance annually. Insurance companies charge you more if you pay monthly, quarterly, or semi-monthly. Pay once a year and you’ll pay a lot less.”

Shopping:

What are the best thing to shop for in August?

  • School supplies
  • School clothes
  • Summer clothing like sandals, swimsuits, shorts, and tank tops.
  • Linens and towels
  • Lawn and garden equipment
  • Camping gear!

 

Vegetables:

“Store celery and lettuce in the refrigerator in paper bags instead of plastic. Leave the outside leaves and stalks on until ready to use.”
