November is the Best Time to Buy

When it comes to saving money and shopping for bargains, it’s a no-brainer that there are certain times of year that are better than others to shop for seasonal items. For example, you’re probably not going to score a smokin’ deal on a pair of winter boots in November. Best wait until after Christmas, when prices are slashed to make room for spring fashions.

Looking for a deluxe gas grill for your summer barbecues? You’ll pay top dollar in May. Waiting til August may limit the selection, but you could save up to half off the retail price and still celebrate Labor Day with deliciously grilled delights!

But did you know that there are better times of year to shop for non-seasonal items as well? I was delighted to learn this, and with a little advance planning or postponement of projects, it’s possible to save a bundle by being aware of the calendar.

November, it turns out, is the best time of year to buy kitchen appliances and power tools. So if you’re planning to while away the cold winter months with a home improvement project, prepare ahead of time and take advantage of the deals on sanders, power saws and even those stainless steel appliances you’ve been coveting.

See you at Home Depot!
