Here’s When the Best Time To Buy The Thing You Want….

January 6, 2015

So, the Cheap Bastard’s wife asked him to do a little bit of research on when the best time to buy things was. For example, when’s a good time to buy a computer, say, or even a car? Considering it’s the beginning of the year, it’s a great time to find out. And now that I’ve done it at my wife’s urging, I wanted to share my findings with you.

The answer wasn’t too hard to find. In fact, I found it at Consumerreports.org.
