Email to someoneShare on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The incessant mattress commercials over the President’s Day long weekend got me thinking…is this the best time buy a mattress? For that matter, is there really a better time of year to buy certain items like computers, linens, etc.? I am always open to improving my shopping acumen, so I did a little research. There seems to be a seasonality that benefits the consumer during certain points of the year, either due to inventory change-outs or manufacturers encouraging you to purchase something to kick off a season or holiday. So, here’s a rundown- many of these items can certainly freshen up and update your living space. And if you’re wondering about this same thing as it relates to home buying and selling, the answers are not as simple- let’s chat!
