    Sounds like a great deal, redshoe! Glad you found it.

    Thank you so much for this post. It was perfect timing. We'd been needing a new grill since the summer but decided to wait to see if they would go on sale. After seeing your post, I was browsing the Sears web page and found the grill we wanted for almost $200 less than retail price. My husband is thrilled! Thanks!

    TV are on sale now - Amazon and other retailers sold out of the TV we wanted (50 inch panasonic, we had to get the 55 inch Hubby was not sad). The new TV models come out in March so many box stores and online places are having really good sales now.

    Thanks vlynn for the tip on the paint sales.

    Home Depot and Lowes have two big paint sales and other home related items during the 4th of July and Labor Day

    Maybe the shower gel I like the most is just too expensive with sales and coupons! lol I've got a ton of suave shower gel but it's just ok. I really like dial and not on sale it's around $6 so with sales and coupons it's still high. I was hoping there would be sometime during the year they're a bit lower. Oh well. I will keep a check out and buy a ton of it if I can ever find it lower.

    I'm with Nancy regarding bath and body care products. They are on sale throughout the year for good prices and there is not one good month or 2 when they are best. There are often some good deals on them with the drug store black friday sales but we get similar deals all year long at different stores with coupons and store rewards. If you are looking for bath and beauty gift sets, early January is best. The drug stores mark down the lotion/shower gel sets right after Christmas.

    Ginger - thanks for the e-mail prompting me to write the list. It's something I have been meaning to do for a while.

    Thanks for the list Faye; as always, I appreciate all the work you do!

    Packy, a lot of the feminine care items such as shower gels and the like get more attention (sales) just prior to Mother's Day and Valentines Day I've noted in the past. but I also find that the sales on those items seem to cycle around between the drug stores somewhat regularly. Hope they have a sale soon for you!

    This is a great list. I too need a new tv so I will wait a few more weeks.

  • ncbeachbound2 Jan 14, 2013

    Thanks for the list and I can't wait to show it to my hubby. He is itching to buy a new TV and I keep telling him we need to wait another week or two. That the TVs will go on sale right before the Superbowl. He is a doubting thomas and I can't wait to prove that I'm right.

    Great list...and I could've missed this BUT when is the best time for health and beauty items. Like shower gel... there's a certain brand I like (although I'm using a diff brand) and of course it's expensive. I've been waiting for a few months to stock up and it's not happened yet. :(

    I love it! Thank you so much FAYE! This is a great resource. I'd add that January was a great time to get organized - all containers, shelves etc were on sale. August/Sept is back to college - perfect time to buy small appliances, storage containers, hangers, bath rugs/decor, trash cans, laundry baskets, office supplies etc.

    Does anyone have a sense for the following:
    -sales on kid Bikes and outdoor toys? (Thanksgiving was a good time for scooters, but I'm thinking my kids will outgrow their bikes soon).
    -home improvement stuff and outdoor plants(new house so we have lots of projects esp. Behr Paint? Behr had a rebate a few years ago and I loved the savings)
