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.

So parents, here it is, on behalf of your kids, I've got a list of the life skills they really should know by the time they're teenagers. Time to get started on your kids!
If your teen is eating out with friends, they NEED to know how to properly treat waitstaff. That means no leaving a pile of pennies and a mess for the waitress.
Landlines are slowly disappearing, and phone etiquette is going with it. But if your kid is old enough to be home alone, they should be old enough to handle the phone when it rings.
My 7-year-old knows the basics of separating lights from darks and how to run a washer and dryer. Your 14-year-old can manage it; trust me.
It doesn't have to be gourmet, but there's no reason a 13-year-old can't make a grilled cheese.
Whether it's a thank-you to Granny for the check or a cover letter for an essay contest, it should have a salutation and a signature.
Soap, water, scrub. How hard is that? If they've made a mess in the kitchen, they can clean that mess up.
The government allows American kids to get their working papers at 14, and by then kids should know what's appropriate to wear in a work setting ... and know that they need to wear those clothes to an interview too.
I'm not talking about kids with special needs for whom this is legitimately difficult, but the average teen should know that staring down at the cellphone when someone is talking to you is RUDE.
Most kids can't wait to drive, but they need to learn early on that a driver's license comes with a laundry list of responsibilities. Why not start with pumping gas? It's relatively simple, and unless you live in one of the rare states where gas is pumped for you, they're going to have to learn some time!
