So I found a neat kind of chart for when you should buy things, do things, go places. Some of it is common sense and some of it is pretty interesting!! It's broken out by months, days of the week and time of day!
What Day Is It -
Sunday - Eat at a restauant, shop at weekend festivals and fairs.
Monday - Buy electronics and spa/salon services (ya! if they are open that day)
Tuesday - Airline tickets, bars and restaurants.
Wednesday - Groceries and hotel rooms.
Thursday - Museums and amusement parks.
Friday - Weddings are cheaper to book Friday night or Sunday afternoon...regardless of the season.
Saturday - Books
What Time Is It -
Morning: Movie tickets and gas. I think most of us know if you catch the first movie of the day it's always cheaper. Love that!
Afternoon: Lunch discounts and happy hour food specials at restaurants, parking, and tickets to sporting events or plays.
Evening: Groceries, bakery items, coffee from a coffee shop and newspapers.
