Hey there!  What's shakin'?  If you've stopped by lately you'll know that I'm right smack in the middle of a 31 day series of Decorating on a Shoestring Budget.  Check out the links below to catch up on all the posts:
Day 16:  The Best Times to Buy

If you really love to bargain shop you probably already have a good idea of when and where to find deals.  But did you know that at certain times of the year you can get better deals on certain items?  

Some of the sales at certain times of the year are obvious, like the best time to buy patio furniture is in September.  Well duh, it's the end of the season.  But other "best time to buy" times don't really seem to have any rhyme or reason to them.  For example; bedding and linens are cheapest in January, big appliances are cheapest September-November, flatware and china are cheapest in September,  vacuum cleaners are cheaper in April and May. 

The best times to buy things.

The chart includes lots of bigger ticket items and several smaller items like vacuums and bedding.  If you're decorating on a shoestring budget you are probably interested in saving money in general, not just on decor type things.  I hope the chart above will help you save some money on some of those bigger things, then maybe you'll have a little more to spend on the little things. :)
