The price of things varies throughout the year. This is because stores want to get rid of stock, maybe a major holiday is approaching, the launch of a new collection, or the deadline of expected results for some businesses.
Knowing in what time of the year to buy these objects we can save a significant amount of money.
Clothes. Typical sales after Christmas.
Floors and carpets. Most people buy this at the end of the year so at the beginning of the next prices are down.
Giftcards. Buy discount cards from people who do not want the ones they received for Christmas.
Chocolate. Christmas’ leftovers.
Air conditioners. Out of season so cheap.
Motorbikes. Because of the cold, not many bikes are sold these days and there will be discounts.
Luggage. It is between holiday times so the bags are cheaper.
Suits. People do not usually buy suits on March so they are cheaper.
Cruises. Plan for the summer now.
Grill supplies. Coal, flammable fluid…
Gym. The membership for the gym will drop in June to attract more people and resist the amount of people that go on vacation and sign off.
Computers. Intel and AMD launch their new products at this time so the “outdated” one will cost less than usual.
Videogames. Steam summer sale for PC games.
Children’s clothes. School ready to start again so discounts in that.
Swimwear. When the summer is almost over, stores will try to dump all that have failed to sell.
Appliances. Now new models are coming out so the old ones will drop in prices.
Bicycles. Same as appliances. And also the cold starts so there will be fewer bikers.
Cars. The same without the cold thing.
Wine. It’s harvest time so take advantage and stock wine for the whole year!
Weddings. Totally out of time, but you probably know if you’re getting married next spring so get ready now.
TVs and other electronics. Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale.
Aluminium and plastic foil.
Plants and flowers.
Champagne. The competition is wild so the prices will drop.
Toys. The more the holidays approach, the better the deals.
