BEST DAY TO SHOP FOR GREATEST SAVINGS
You may prefer to shop on Sundays because it fits your schedule best or you choose Tuesday afternoons because it's less crowded. Maybe it's time to rethink your strategy and instead shop on the day that offers the best deals. What day is that? It depends on what you're buying. SmartMoney figured out the best days for the deepest discounts. That means that prices for the exact same item in the exact same store could be lower on Sunday than it is on Wednesday. Here is SmartMoney's advice on what to buy on which days:
Appliances: Prices for washers, dryers, ovens and refrigerators are about 1 percent to 2 percent cheaper on Sundays, which works out to about $10 saved on a mid-range model.
Groceries: While most grocery stores publish their weekly sales circular on Wednesdays, Sunday is the best day to shop. Clip coupons from Sunday's newspaper for more savings.
Personal Care Items: You'll find the best deals on toothpaste and deodorant at the drugstore chains on Sundays. You must go early to get the best deals.
Skirts and Dresses: Skirts sell, on average, for 77 percent off the retail price, while dresses are discounted, on average, 54 percent.
Cars: Cars are cheapest on Mondays as dealerships are more willing to negotiate. This holds true whether weekend sales were lackluster and they want to makeup for that or whether weekend sales were robust and they want to continue it.
Electronics: Computers, televisions, digital cameras and even video games are between 2 percent and 4 percent cheaper on Mondays.
Airfares: Since most domestic fares are posted on Monday evening, there is a scramble Tuesday morning to match prices. The number of cheap seats peaks at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
Clothing: Both brick-and-mortar stores and online retailers tend to begin their weekend sales on Thursday. You'll find the best deals and the most in-stock items. However, there are exceptions. See Monday.
Books: Books are 11 percent cheaper on Saturdays; they are priced at their highest on Fridays.
Teenagers are using common holiday baking ingredients – cinnamon, nutmeg and even marshmallows – to get a cheap thrill or a high, experts say. Teens are involved in several dangerous new trends that could be deadly. Most parents have no idea what is going on, but a quick search on YouTube reveals their stunts and trends. Here is a list of some dangerous fads parents should be aware of:
Salt and Ice Challenge: Salt is poured on an area of the arm/or hand and then ice is placed on top. This creates a burning sensation. The game is to see who can tolerate the pain the longest/ can wait until the ice melts. The burning sensation creates a white scar, which eventually turns red and will be extremely painful.
Drinking Hand Sanitizer: Teens use the over-the-counter cleanser for a cheap way to get drunk. Most hand sanitizers contain 62% ethyl alcohol. Salt is used to separate the alcohol from the other parts of the sanitizer, which yields a 120-proof shot.
Cinnamon Challenge: The challenge is to swallow a spoonful of cinnamon within 60 seconds as a dare/bet. The spice usually dries out the person’s mouth and is almost impossible to swallow. Sometimes, the person accidentally inhales the cinnamon, which can cause severe chest pain.
Chubby Bunny Marshmallow: Game to see how many marshmallows you can fit inside your mouth and say “Chubby Bunny.” Players keep adding marshmallows during each round until they cannot fit anymore in their mouth/can’t say “Chubby Bunny.” The game has turned dangerous when kids have choked on the marshmallows and died.
Car Surfing: Getting out of a car through the window while it is speeding down a freeway and then standing on the roof while it continues to speed down the road. This can cause accidents and the death of the person on the roof/ people in the car.
Planking: Also known as “Extreme Lying Down.” People lay down on their stomach in a strange and unusual place, pointing their fingers and toes downward. A picture is taken of the pose and posted on Facebook with a unique name for the “plank”
Vodka Eyeballing: Pouring vodka into your eyeball instead of drinking it. The fad started as a way to get drunk quicker because it is believed the alcohol is absorbed through the eye’s mucous membrane and enters the bloodstream through the veins in the back of the eye. Experts believe Vodka Eyeballing is a placebo affect because people are usually drunk when they attempt it.
Nutmeg snorting: Ground nutmeg has been snorted, smoked and eaten in large quantities to produce a marijuana-like high. Nutmeg contains myristicin which is a hallucinogenic, like LSD. Other common household products that are also being abused are hand sanitizer, aerosol whipped cream, aerosol cooking spray, ink markers and glue.
Purple Drank: A drink mixed with prescription grade cough syrup – whichh contains promethazine and codeine – and Sprite, or some carbonated drink. The drink gets its name from the purplish color of the cough syrup.
Smoking Smarties: Kids crush up the candy Smarties and inhale/exhale the candy’s dust. “Smoking” Smarties can be dangerous when the dust gets clogged in the nasal passages.
The Choking Game: A game where people cutting off oxygen and blood flow to the brain by choking each other to get a short high and/or pass out.
Butt Chugging: Using a rubber tube that is inserted into the rectum, alcohol is absorbed through the capillaries and blood vessels. The alcohol enters the blood stream and bypasses the liver’s filtering.
“Twilight”-Inspired Fad: Biting: Teens use the idea of a love bite, or a hickey, and take it one step further by breaking the skin and draw blood – passing blood from teen to the other.
Spice or K2 (Synthetic Marijuana): Spice is herb based synthetic marijuana. The DEA worked to ban the five main ingredients, but Spice companies have found ways to continue to manufacture K2 by working around the ban.
Datura Flower Abuse: Teens ingest the the common Datura Flower, also known as Angel’s Trumpet or Jimson Weed, for a high, but the flower is highly toxic, where even small doses can send you to the hospital.
Vodka Tamponing: Girls soak tampons in vodka and insert them in their bodies.
