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.
It's not always possible to eat your meals and snacks at the dinner table, but when you eat on the run or while doing something else, you're more likely to consume extra calories. To prevent weight gain, avoid munching in these five places.
1. In the car Eating on the run is never a good idea. Quick food that is made to "grab and go" tends to be high in calories; and, when you eat while driving, you often inhale food quickly to avoid having a hand off of the steering wheel. You're also so busy watching the road that you don't watch how much food you're actually eating. If you must eat in the car, pack healthy snacks and meals so you know exactly how many calories you're consuming.
2. Standing in the kitchen When you meander into the kitchen for a quick bite, you're surrounded by food, so no wonder you end up eating way more than you anticipated. The worst is eating while standing in front of an open fridge or cupboard, or chomping straight out of the package since it's difficult to keep track of just how many chips you've eaten. If you're hungry for a snack or meal, prepare an appropriate portion size in a bowl or on a plate, and sit down at the table to enjoy it.
3. In front of the TV Television commercials are brutal when it comes to your appetite. All those ads for cheesy pizzas, hamburgers, nachos, wings, and desserts really do inspire late-night snacks. No wonder you head to the kitchen and bring back bags of chips, pints of ice cream, and chocolate bars. There's nothing wrong with a snack in front of the boob tube, just make sure you're not mindlessly munching on endless calories. Measure out a serving and keep the rest in the kitchen.
4. At your desk This is such a tough habit to break, especially if you have a demanding nine-to-fiver and need to work through your lunch break. This is similar to eating in the car or in front of the TV. You're busy working and aren't paying attention to what you're eating, and before you know it, you've devoured an entire plate of food within minutes. When you eat quickly and don't pay attention to each bite, your brain doesn't register how much you've actually eaten, so you end up feeling hungry instead of satiated, which translates to reaching for more food. If you can, take at least 15 minutes away from your desk to eat your meal or snack, and be sure not to tempt yourself by keeping packages of food and treats in your desk drawer.
5. In bed There's a few reasons people eat in bed, but, whether you're feeling sick, are being pampered, or are just feeling a little lazy, eating in bed isn't always a good thing. It encourages mindless eating and creates a less-than-hygienic sleep area. Avoid eating in bed by having a satisfying dinner at the table, and if need be, eat a small bowl of fresh fruit a couple hours before you hit the hay to ward off late-night hunger pangs.
