Welcome to our “shopping on a budget” quick tips series – Day 5 of 5. Every day this week, we have offered up advice on getting the most out of your shopping dollars. I hope you all will chime in with your own money saving tips as well. In case you missed our previous posts, check out our entire Budget Shopping Tips series.
The final tip in our Budget Shopping series is purchasing seasonal items when they go on sale. I know this advice has been around for years, but allow me to explain why I am finally tuning in to this tip. In years gone by, the trick to seasonal sales shopping was to wait until an end of this summer to purchase items for next summer. I can’t think that far ahead. My attention span doesn’t allow it. When the weather starts cooling off, I’m not looking at the summer sale racks – I’m digging into the “what’s new” section for fall and winter!
