Plan your purchases. Never pay full price.
Nothing irks me more than paying full price for something I regularly buy.
Because its so avoidable, and who likes paying more than they have to?
Its avoidable because sales, for the most part, work on a 12 month seasonal cycle. You see, retailers are forever trying to beat last year’s sales figures. They break their targets down into smaller weekly chunks and tackle them one week at a time, each week’s results are then compared to last year’s with a eye for growth.
So what happens if you’re a retailer and this week last year you had a sale? How are you going to beat last year? Simple. You have a sale this year too!
And so, its easy to predict when a sale might happen this year, based on what happened last year.
