Timing is Everything

Do you ever feel like you get caught buying something right before it is about to go on sale? This is always happens to me and the sad thing is that it doesn't have to!

This book Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon is an amazing solution to our spending more than we should have to problem!  I got this book a few years ago and I love it!  I had completely forgotten about it until the other day my hubby was looking at it...how could I forget about such a wonderful resource?! Well we are catching up again and I thought I'd spread the saving love to all of you too!

This book is so great because it gives advice as to when to do everything!  It is great because it gives tips for when to buy, when to go, and when to do almost everything!  As the title so gracefully displays it is cheapest to buy ketchup in May and it is best to fly at noon because you avoid a lot of the business of the airport..like I said this book is great!  Each chapter addresses a different variety of tips.

The first chapter is all about when to buy!  It includes tips like: when is the best time of the day to go to a garage sale to find a real treasure...right before it is scheduled to open.  When is the best month to buy a winter coat...January or February.

 The second chapter is all about your to-do's!  It includes tips like: when is the best time to do the most difficult tasks of the day...between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.  Which is the best day of the year to visit a social security office...the day after Thanksgiving Day.

Chapter three is all about travel!  It includes tips like: when is the best time of year to see Niagara Falls...October.  When is the best time of day to get the best views from the top of the Empire State Building...dusk on a clear winter day.

Chapter 4 is all about work related issues.  It gives tips on things like: when is the best time to take your work cell phone with you on vacation...never.  When is the best month to look for a job...December.

Chapter 5 is all about health!  It gives helpful hints like:  when is the best time to do a cardio workout...between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.  When is the best time to take a multivitamin...breakfast time.

Chapter 6 is about education!  It gives hits like: when is the best time of the day for students to stud something that they'll remember for a long time...from 9 p.m. to midnight.  When is the best time to learn math...right after class.

Chapter 7 deals with some more serious matters!  It covers things like: which is the best day of the year to make an offer on a house...Christmas Day.  When is the best time of the day to speed...at 8 a.m., 4 p.m., and midnight.

Each of the tips are followed up by the rational behind it...the why...and sometimes it will include the opposite truth like when is the worst time.  This is such a helpful book and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking to maximize their lifestyle because timing is everything!
