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.
In order to determine the “Best Diets Overall,” nice people at U.S. News (with help from what they call a “panel of health experts”) evaluated a bunch of diets based on the following criteria:
Here are the top 10 best diets (follow the title links for U.S. News’ evaluations and explanations):
1. DASH Diet- This diet may not be as famous as Atkins and Juice Cleanses, but it’s much healthier. It was formulated to lower blood pressure, but the panel of experts that U.S. News say it’s the very best diet overall.
2. TLC Diet – Weirdly enough it has nothing to do with the television network that brings great programming such as Long Island Medium and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The TLC stands for Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes. This diet was cooked up by the National Institutes of Health and not by snake oil salesmen, so it’s legit, but you have to be committed.
3. Mayo Clinic- Rated only moderately effective for weight loss, this diet focuses on lifelong healthy eating. It’s super safe.
4. Mediterranean- Olive oil bla bla. Healthy fats bla bla. Mediterranean people never die. You’ve heard it before.
5. Weight Watchers- Everybody seems to love this weight loss consumer cult–it worked for the fictional Betty Draper. I think it’s a little creepy, but whatever it teaches people to budget nutrition in a healthy way. Weight Watchers makes dieting fun, technological, easy and social. I get it.
6. Flexitarian- It’s about being flexible about nutrition, emphasizing produce and whole grains and not totally depriving yourself of meat forever. U.S. News says that “Flexitarians weigh 15 percent less than their more carnivorous counterparts; have a lower rate of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer; and live an average of 3.6 years longer.”
7. Volumetrics- This diet has you eating the same amount as ever before, just healthier. Basically it’s about replacing the volume of bullshit garbage you eat with energy dense, nutritious vegetables and other healthy options.
8. Jenny Craig- This diet is expensive and so 90s, but I guess it’s good for you and works if you want to lose weight.
9. Biggest Loser- Allegedly good for disease prevention and reversal and for short term weight loss. I guess it’s actually healthy (unlike the diet they put Biggest Loser contestants on) and just capitalizes on the show’s famous name.
10. Ornish Diet- They claim it’s scientifically proven to make humans “feel better, live longer, lose weight, and gain health.” I’m having trouble understanding the diet, but I suppose you tailor it to whatever benefits you want to reap, be it weight loss or heart health.
