Saving You Money
The list starts with prom dresses. If you have a teenager, don't wait until prom season to shop. You'll miss the sales and pay an elevated price, according to YAHOO SHOPPING. Great markdowns are going on right now on beautiful gowns. Get it out of the way early and move on to finding the perfect accessories.
Don't go out and buy furniture if you don't need it, but if you do, February is the best time to buy. New styles come out in Spring, so stores are trying to clear out this month to make room. You can score deals as much as 60% off.
You're probably not thinking about using your air conditioner right now. That's why it's a great time to buy one. If your unit has been acting up and replacing it is inevitable, you'll get the best deal in the month of February. Many AC vendors are offering great deals to entice you.
