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.
There's nothing better than having your kids home for summer vacation, but let's get real. After about a week of fun in the sun, chances are your little ones will run out of things to do and start complaining that they're bored. While it can be tempting to let your children watch TV for hours on end while you chill out with your iPad, instead check out our Summer Survival Guide –– complete with 10 sure-fire ways to keep your kids entertained this season!
1. Go camping in the backyard.
Break out the camping gear and have your kids set up a tent in your garden! They'll have tons of fun making s'mores, getting cozy in their sleeping bags, and telling ghost stories. You can even help them barbecue hot dogs and hamburgers! And yes, chances are they'll be begging to sleep in their own rooms by bedtime. Sigh, can't win 'em all.
2. Buy an inflatable pool.
The best cure for the Summer Blues? A pool party! Turn your yard into a waterpark with a slip n' slide, squirt guns, beach balls, and an inflatable pool, and then sit back and relax as your kids entertain themselves for hours on end. Just make sure to lather them up with plenty of sunscreen....
3. One word: puzzles.
Summer is a great time to get your kids outdoors, but sometimes the scalding hot weather makes it impossible to leave the house. Times like these call for our favorite boredom cure: puzzles! They're fun, will enhance your child's problem solving skills, and can be enjoyed by the entire family. And in air conditioning, no less!
4. Two words: water balloons.
Don't have the energy to turn your yard into a pool party? Hand your rambunctious children a bag of water balloons and a garden hose, and let them go to town. The upside? They'll be entertained for hours. The downside? You'll have to clean up water balloon scraps all afternoon. But that's what your husband is for, right?
5. Stock up on books.
Why watch TV when there are books to be read? Instead of letting your kids zone out withSpongebob Squarepants, take them to the bookstore and buy a few copies of your favorite childhood classic. Yep, it's time for a mini-book club! Assign one book per week and then discuss their favorite parts of the story over ice cream.
6. Plan some killer craft projects.
We envision our kids crafting up a storm in the summer, but it can be hard to whip together a project on the fly. Our suggestion? Plan in advance by buying supplies for your favorite craft projects –– that way you can bust 'em out at a moment's notice! For a list of great summer projects, head here.
7. Make popsicles.
Kids love cooking projects, but who wants to be in front of a hot oven during the height of summer? Not us, that's for sure. If you're looking for a cool kitchen project for your children, help them make popsicles with fruit, juice, and herbs! Head here to check out our recipe roundup for inspiration.
8. Press flowers from your garden.
This old-fashioned project is tons of fun, and you already have all the supplies you need! Just have your kids pick a few flowers from the garden, and then press them in between the pages of their favorite book. In a few weeks they should have a gorgeous dried flower, which you can help them frame.
9. Make a lemonade stand.
There's nothing more fun than buying homemade lemonade from a bunch of adorable kiddos! Your children will love making a few bucks by selling the sweet stuff to neighbors, and you can help them brainstorm creative ways to spend the money they earn. Oh, and bonus? Making the stand signage doubles as a craft project, so better bust out the glitter glue.
10. Treasure hunt.
Throw together a makeshift treasure hunt in just a few minutes by hiding clues around your house that lead to one summer-friendly prize (maybe a six-pack of homemade popsicles in the freezer!). Your kids will love searching for the treasure, and will be entertained for at least a half hour while you take some much-needed time to relax. After all, thinking up clues is hard work!
