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.
(Netcape) From choosing just the right stationery to ending with a memorable valediction, writing the perfect love letter may seem like a lost art, but it is one that is sure to win your beloved's heart. Here are step-by-step instructions from writer Larry Barkdull:
Choose a neutral stationery in cream or white. The letter must be handwritten in black or brown ink only.
Create your own muse by setting the scene. Write your letter in a quiet, secluded place. Play soft, romantic music. Light a candle! Simulate a romantic time and place so your mood will reflect that.
This is a letter that will be treasured, remembered and saved, so be sure to date it precisely with the day, month and year.
The salutation sets the tone for the rest of the missive. Use your love's first name preceded by endearing words, such as: "My dearest Elizabeth..." or "My darling Christopher..."
Open your love letter by telling your beloved why you are writing. Barkdull offers this example: "I have lain awake many sleepless nights trying to compose words that might adequately describe the feelings of my heart. But every time I have made the attempt, I have failed miserably. Please forgive my poor effort and accept a trite and simple phrase: I love you. I think I can say it no better than that..." Do not insult your beloved's feelings or belittle yourself by saying something so trite as "I know you probably don't feel the same way" or "You must think I am crazy."
Tell your beloved why you fell in love. List the reasons one by one. Emphasize that you can't imagine your life without him or her and how wonderful and complete your life is with your beloved in it. Recall special moments you have shared. Do not be too light-hearted and whatever you do, do not be openly erotic. Most important, sound sincere and confident. Here are some words to consider using in your letter: angel, angelic, lover, giving, alluring, tempting, sensual, sensuality, seeing, tasting, touching, holding, caressing, memories, memorable, darling, gorgeous, absence, velvet, voyage, beautiful, vision, elation, blossoms, happy, kisses, innocent, passion, dreaming, delirious, temptation, complete, desire, content, embrace, rainbow, rose, adoring, stars, privileged, heart.
Choose a carefully worded phrase that is upbeat and sincere to sum up how you feel. Barkdull offers this suggestion: "There, I have said it. I can rest now. And as I dream, I will dream of you."
It's far too simple to end with "Love, Matthew." Try one of these instead:
9. Neatness counts
if your beloved cannot read your handwriting, then all is for naught. So do write neatly and legibly.
10. The envelope
When you are finished writing, fold the love letter and place it in a neatly addressed envelope that matches the stationery. The correct way to fold the stationery is in half with the text on the inside. The paper crease should go in the bottom of the envelope. Choose a stamp with a romantic look.
