In shopping, as in life, timing is everything. Smart Money’s got a relatively extensive list on the perfect moment to purchase goods.
When to buy: During a holiday weekend.
Why: You’ll find sales on select models all year long, but retailers bring out the big guns for holiday weekends, says Carolyn Forte, homecare director for the Good Housekeeping Institute. But don’t worry about spending your Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends shopping for a new fridge — smaller holidays like Columbus Day and President’s Day have their share of sales, too.
