Is There a Best Time in a Year to Go Shopping?

Today we will focus on tips on how to save money by shopping for specific at the best possible time of the year! With a little bit of pre-planning and few tips, you can find what you need at price well below market value. You have to be smart and a little patient to find the best prices and deals for things you need to shop for. Let’s find out how.

Buy Clothes Six Weeks After Season

How exciting it is to find new arrivals at the starting of the season. But new arrivals are the ones that cost the most. The market price of clothes goes down after six weeks have passed. If you can wait for six weeks, you will get clothes at a very good price.

The downside of doing this is that popular items might get sold out within six weeks. But when you go to the store, you can always ask the salesperson to call other locations and see if your item is in the stock. An advantage of waiting is that you will overcome your impulses to shop and if you forget about the item after six weeks, you probably didn't need it.

End of Season

We all know how the prices of clothing comes down, or there is a clearance sale at the end of the season. That is the best time to buy clothes. You can easily stock up on clothes at the end of the season, for the next season. If you have kids in the growing age then buy clothes a little larger then their size for the next season. This would work well for items like jeans, pants, cardigans or suits that are not going to go out of trend quickly. Shop for warmer clothes in January or February. For swimsuits, short dresses and sandals, you can shop in August when summer season is at its end.
