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.
Last week my boy and I had a big blow out. I gave up trying to discuss the issue that night because neither one of us was budging on our perspective. I intended to wait a bit while the smoke died down and then re-approach the issue when we were both in a more receptive and willing-to-work-it-out place.
The next morning I’m working on my blog at my favorite coffee shop, drinking tea and eating the outside of a crispy bran muffin (don’t like the inside), when I hear the Facebook bell notify me that I have a message.
It’s my boy and he’s asking me if I’m still mad at him...
Well, this turned into a 10 minute private messaging conversation which was just what the doctor ordered - conflict management at its best. Both my son and I are passionate conversationalists (a nice word for “arguers”) who think fast, have worthy comebacks, and many times don’t have the patience for hearing each other’s point of view OVER AND OVER again (the debate club is going to be lucky to have my boy.
Here are 5 ways Facebook helps to resolve conflicts with your child:
1 - You both get the opportunity to express yourself without being interrupted!
2 - You have an opportunity to review your response and tweak and upgrade before hitting the send button (how many times have you said something to your kid you just wish you had said differently? Here’s your chance to sound like the wise, supportive, and loving parent you were born to be).
3 - You have the time to create a RESPONSE instead of a REACTION. You have time to remember why you love this person and that your highest intention is to offer inspirational words, connect lovingly and calmly.
4 - You can consult with another person on a different message screen for advice if you get stuck and need some guidance how to handle the conversation (remember though not to share the conversation with your other message buddy or you’re in breach of confidentiality with your kid!)
5 - Worse comes to worse, if you find you are still hitting a brick wall, you can always say “I love you, let’s continue this conversation later, bye,” exit out of your Facebook page and get back to your work, tea and crispy bran muffin...
