The Best Time To Buy Things

Lifehacker has put together a great guide on when to buy stuff in order to get the best deal.  Some of it is obvious, like buying candy after Halloween, or a new car in September, but there’s also some more surprising stuff in there, like that laptops are cheaper in April while November and December are your best times of year to get a wedding dress.

The whole article made me think of Mark Di Vincenzo’s Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon book, which looks at the best time to do a whole bunch of stuff, not just shop. I read it a while ago and did pick up some good tips, like when the best time of day is to have your picture taken (not that I’ve ever followed that bit of advice).
