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.

The word “peerenting” may be fairly new, but chances are you already know a peerent, or maybe even are one yourself. You know, the mom who describes herself as her daughter’s best friend or the dad who overshares about his life. Peerents are afraid of hearing the word “no” from their kids! Sometimes, though, the signs you’re being a peerent instead of a parent aren’t that obvious. Here, the five signs that you may be more peer than parent to your child.
We all struggle with saying setting boundaries once in a while and few parents enjoy being the disciplinarian. But if you’re constantly ignoring your better instincts and letting your child do what he wants so you don’t hurt his feelings, you’re acting more like a peerent than a parent. Parents know that even though it feels awful, you have to be the bad guy and set limits when your child is running wild.
It may be cute to wear matching outfits when your child is a toddler, but as they get older, it’s not. Your child needs to develop her own style and wear what her friends are wearing without worrying that you’ll be rummaging through her closet for something “cool” to wear. It’s not that big a deal if you’re shopping at a store that sells clothes for all ages, but when you start wearing the same styles as your tween or teen, you may be toeing the parent-peerent line.
Not sure you qualify yet? Keep reading for more signs you're a peerent.
There’s a big difference between being friendly with your child, and having common interests and treating him like a friend. Your child doesn’t need to know about your love life or why you think your boss isn’t treating you fairly at work — that’s peerenting. A parent doesn’t use a child as a life coach.
No parent wants to see their child struggle, but sometimes you have to let go a little to let them grow a little. You might be a peerent if you listen to your child’s worries, fears, and concerns and then come up with a plan of action for the two of you to fix everything together. Or worse, intervene without her even knowing. Parents help kids learn to solve their own problems, peerents tend to do too much for their kids.
There’s nothing wrong with letting your child be a part of the decision-making process around the house, but if you’re tiptoeing around and letting him rule with a heavy hand, that’s a fair sign you’re peerenting and not parenting. Parents know that they are in charge and make the big decisions about how life at home is going to go. It’s one thing to let your child decide what color to paint his room, but it’s quite another to let him veto the colors you want to paint your room!
