Thanks! So glad!

Love your list! feb. and May are my favorite times to shop then the week after Halloween haha. Tons of costumes $2 each!
Yes! That’s when I stock up on fun ones to play with in the house!
I’m all about getting a good deal and shopping off season. I used to be the queen of buying things as soon as the season was over for next season. Since having kids, I kind of fly by the seat of my pants these days..ha ha. I needed this list!
LOL! Yes, I have to be so intentional about it and I get so mad when I miss these amazing markdowns!

I have my own mental list of things like this, but I’ve never written it out. January is also a good time to buy organization stuff and furniture. Especially at places like Costco, they move out all the holiday stuff and move in the BIG furniture pieces.
You are so right! Great add!
This is a great list, i’ll be using this to find things!
Awesome! I know it will save you tons!

LOL! Awesome so glad it’s helpful!
Who doesn’t love saving money!? This made a lot of sense, but I had never even really thought much into when I buy things! Thanks for posting!
Exactly! Awesome, I’m so glad!
I have been looking for a list like this for awhile, but many of them are so dated! Thanks for sharing a current one! 🙂
I’m so glad! Enjoy!

I wouldn’t have thought of some of these! I always like to check stores right after a major holiday to see if they’ve put the holiday stuff on sale!
Yes! That is a great practice!
Omg I love finding deals! Thanks for these awesome tips 🙂
I’m so glad! Thanks so much!
This was super helpful! I am in need of new towels, so this is fantastic! Thanks!
Thanks so much girl!
This is interesting, I hadn’t given much thought to the time of year that would be best to buy certain things until now!
That’s great! I’m glad you found something new and useful!
