Tips on Buying for the Cheap at Heart

Smart Money has this article about the best time to buy items from clothes to airline tickets. It's not as thorough as I would prefer, and a lot of the advice is common-sense, but it is a fun, quick read. If you don't have two minutes to read the whole article, here's my summary:

*Buy seasonal goods off season, from wrapping paper to outdoor furniture to clothing.

*Buy new appliances on a holiday weekend, when there is likely to be a sale.

*Wait 6 - 12 months before buying a new technology when it comes to items like TVs or computers.

6-12 months...yes, I wish I could get that through my boyfriend's mind.
