Saving Money on Big Purchases


If you need to make a big purchase of something like a car, dishwasher, refrigerator, TV or electronics, wait until the end of the month, the end of the quarter or the end of the year.  Many stores have monthly, quarterly and annual sales goals.  As they get close to the end of the month, the quarter or the year, they often cut their prices to meet their sales targets.  Bonus idea: estimate the amount you saved and put all or at least part of that amount in your savings account.
