Tuesday Tip: Find Deals by Shopping Out of Season

It’s summertime and everyone’s in the market for patio furniture, grills, and bathing suits.  Don’t you think that retailers know that?  That’s how they stock and price their items… by demand. While all of those items are appropriate for the summer season, now is when they are the most expensive.  With a little planning you can save money on everything you need for each season.  The key is to go shopping in the off-season. Saving money is also helpful when you’re trying to pay off debt.

Our credit counseling advice - buy what you need out of season.

Our credit counseling advice – buy what you need out of season.

For example, if you’re in the market for a new grill, outdoor furniture, or summer clothes, you should wait until the end of summer if possible.  Retailers will be looking to get rid of last season’s models, and they’ll offer discounts in order to make room for new inventory.

The best time to shop for any season is at the end of it.  Need a snow blower or winter coat? Shop at the end of winter/early spring.

Stay ahead of the weather and under budget by thinking about the upcoming season and shopping at the right time.

If you’re struggling to pay off debt, ACCC can help. Schedule a free credit counseling session with us today.
