my first guide for the best time to shop you should probably take a couple minutes and read the little tidbits of information about the best time to buy swimwear, perfume, and pajamas. If you have already read it then snaps for you for reading one of my beginning blogger posts because even I cringe when I see some of my first blog articles (side note/fun fact: the first edition of The Best Time To Shop was my first ever article to be chosen for IFB's Links a la Mode.) For part deux I'm going to take a quick dip into the waters of 1) Linens, 2) Hair Care Products, and 3) Planners and Agendas.
Ban.do agendas this year, if you didn't purchase one within two weeks of their pre-order release on line you were fresh out of luck when it came to getting your hands on one for the 2014-15 edition. But for every other case you can put your hope in the fact that whatever agenda you've had your eye on will be available months after its release. That's why December is the best month to buy 17 month agendas even if you run on a typical 12 month schedule. If you're out of school you probably don't think of your years as August-May, but rather January-December so by buying a "school year" calender several months after it's been released you get the discounted price since you technically lost the first 5 months of use even though you plan on only using the remaining 12 months for the calendar year.
