The Cheapest Days To Buy Certain Items

The Cheapest Days to Buy Certain Items
by Kelli B. Grant
Friday, July 13, 2007provided

Another day, another deal.

Thanks to online coupons, price-comparison search engines and reward memberships, savvy shoppers can pay less than full price on any day that ends in "y." But depending on what you're planning to buy, some days of the week may yield better bargains than others.

We talked to the experts, and narrowed down the best days of the week to buy certain items.

Airplane Tickets
When to Buy: Wednesday morning.
Why: "Most airfare sales are thrown out there on the weekend," says travel expert Peter Greenberg, a.k.a. The Travel Detective. Other airlines then jump into the game, discounting their own fares and prompting further changes by the first airline. The fares reach their lowest prices late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

When to Buy: Thursday.
Why: Price compare between major chains Borders and Barnes & Noble. The former releases its weekly sales and coupons on every Thursday; the latter, every Tuesday.

When to Buy: Monday.
Why: "Car dealers live for the weekend, which is when they make most of their sales," says Phil Reed, consumer advice editor for "On Mondays, the low foot traffic makes it seem like the weekend will never come." That dealer desperation, paired with fewer consumers on the lot, give you more negotiating power.

When to Buy: Thursday evening.
Why: That's the day when stores stock their shelves for the weekend, and when many retailers — including Ann Taylor, Banana Republic and Express — start their weekend promotions, says Kathryn Finney, author of "How to Be a Budget Fashionista." You'll find great prices and the best selection. "It's an effort to get people to shop in the middle of the week," she says.

Department-Store Wares
When to Buy: Saturday evening.
Why: Department stores have a lot to mark down for their Sunday circulars, so they frequently start the process on Saturday evenings before store closing, says Finney. "They're preparing for the big rush," she says. Bonus: Even if the markdowns haven't been made, many employees will honor the sale price if you ask. Print out the circular preview from the store's web site, and bring it with you when you head to the mall.

Dinner Out
When to Buy: Tuesday.
Why: Most restaurants do not receive food deliveries over the weekend. "Sunday is the garbage-can day of the week," says Kate Krader, senior editor at Food & Wine magazine. "No doubt, they're cleaning out their fridges. Tuesdays, they're starting fresh." Dining out on that day offers the best odds you'll get a meal worth paying for, no matter your price point, she says.

When to Buy: Wednesday.
Why: Plenty of movie theaters, amusement parks and museums offer extra discounts to consumers who visit midweek. Six Flags theme parks offer a $12 discount to AAA members — three times its usual discount of $4. AMC Theatres offers members in its free AMC Movie Watcher reward program a free small popcorn on Wednesdays. (This summer, it's also the day select theaters offer free Summer Movie Camp screenings.)

When to Buy: Thursday, before 10 a.m.
Why: The price of oil isn't the only factor influencing costs at your local pump. Consumer usage plays a role, too — and weekend demand is high, says Jason Toews, co-founder of, a price-monitoring site. Prices usually swing upward on Thursdays as travelers fuel up to head out the following day. By hitting the pump before 10 a.m. (when many station owners change their prices), you'll beat the rush and the price jump.

When to Buy: Sunday — or Tuesday.
Why: Maximize savings by combining store sales, which run from Wednesday to Tuesday, with the latest round of coupons from your Sunday paper, says Mary Hunt, publisher of Debt-Proof Living, a money-saving newsletter. "It's a smart idea to wait until you have those in hand to match up with the week's sale items," she says.

To snag savings on items you don't need just yet, shop on Tuesday, advises Hunt. Chances are, the store will have run out of the sale items. "That means you can pick up rain checks, which allow you to buy those items later when you need them, and at the sale price," she says.

Hotel Rooms
When to Buy: Sunday.
Why: There are two kinds of hotel managers, and the kind that won't give you a discount on your room rate has Sundays off, says Greenberg. Call the hotel directly, and ask to speak with the manager on duty or the director of sales. These employees are open to negotiation, he says. They'd rather have a booked room at a discounted rate than an empty room. (The rest of the week, your call would get you a so-called revenue manager, who monitors profits — and is rarely willing to lower rates.)

Five Things You Never Knew You Could Do With Your Cell Phone...Worth A Try


There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

FIRST: Emergency
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile, network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

SECOND: Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock.
Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
Editor's Note: "It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!"

THIRD: Hidden Battery Power.
Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.

FOURTH: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #, a 15 digit code appears onthe screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
And Finally....

FIFTH: Free Directory Service for Cells
Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls when they don't have to. Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a problem. When you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial: (800) FREE 411, or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now.

This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends.

Last Freeware Version

Here's a link to some older versions of programs that used to be free that you now have to pay for. These are the freeware versions.

Last Freeware version: jv16 Powertools, RegCleaner, PowerArchiver, PopCorn

A+ Freeware - Multimedia & Design - FastStone Capture 5.3 (last freeware version)

This is the last freeware version of a program that I use all the time. I use it to take pictures of my computer screen. For example, after I buy something online and the order confirmation page pops up, I use this to take a picture of the screen instead of printing out the piece of paper.

I've tried a lot of screen capture programs and I like this one the best because if you push the sixth button from the left, it will take a scrolling picture of the screen, which means the whole window will be included and it won't be cut off.

There's a newer version of this, but you can only used it free for 90 days. This version is free forever.

Mr. Rogers Speaks to the US Senate

By Fred Rogers

What do you do with the mad that you feel
When you feel so mad you could bite?
When the whole wide world seems oh, so wrong...
And nothing you do seems very right?

What do you do? Do you punch a bag?
Do you pound some clay or some dough?
Do you round up friends for a game of tag?
Or see how fast you go?

It's great to be able to stop
When you've planned a thing that's wrong,
And be able to do something else instead
And think this song:

I can stop when I want to
Can stop when I wish.
I can stop, stop, stop any time.
And what a good feeling to feel like this
And know that the feeling is really mine.
Know that there's something deep inside
That helps us become what we can.
For a girl can be someday a woman
And a boy can be someday a man.

Ultimate Guide to Throwing a Yard Sale

The Ultimate Tag-Sale Guide
Everything must go! What you need to know to throw a successful yard sale
Thayer Allyson Gowdy

Why and When to Throw a Tag Sale
For most people, getting rid of unwanted clutter is reason enough to hold a tag sale. "It's a quick and simple way to declutter your home," says Peter Walsh, a Los Angeles–based organizational consultant whose clients have included several Fortune 500 companies. A few guidelines:

Set out your discards at the beginning of the day and by midafternoon you'll have much less stuff and (with luck) a lot more money. (Want to share the wealth? Rent a table or space at a fund-raising tag sale hosted by a local church, school, or civic group. The charity benefits from the entrance fee, while you benefit from lots of traffic. You keep the proceeds.)

Tackle the job between June and October, which is the most popular period for tag sales nationwide. People's schedules tend to be more flexible in the summer. "If you live in a college town, the moving months of August and September can be particularly profitable," says Harry L. Rinker, author of Garage Sale: Manual and Price Guide ( If you're worried about rain, however, you might choose October, the month with the fewest storms in most parts of the country, according to the National Climatic Data Center. The first Saturday of the month usually works well because it's the day after many of your hardworking neighbors have been paid, but follow local customs if they are different.
August 2005

How Long Should a Tag Sale Last?

The duration of your sale is up to you, of course, but:

One-day sales are best in most cases. A full day in the sun (or shade, if you can find it) — say, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. — is plenty of time to get rid of your wares, and shoppers shouldn't feel as if they have all the time in the world to haggle and browse. So don’t let your sale drag on until dusk or the next day.

A two-day schedule is most appropriate for an estate sale, in which an entire household of inventory needs to be moved, Rinker says. Estate-sale goods tend to be upscale; if your items fall into this category, an auction may be a better solution. To find a professional appraiser where you live, go to or

Are Transcripts Suffering Because of Real Time?

As some of you know, I've been a court reporter for 13 years now. Granted, I haven't been practicing in a couple of years, but I have kept my license up. I feel or I'm hoping that it's going to be like riding a bicycle - though you might not have ridden one in a while, you can get on one and ride with the best of them.

Anyway, as some of you also know, I've been involved in a lawsuit against my former employer. I was five months pregnant at the time I was fired. I was fired due to my pregnancy. We wound up settling the lawsuit at mediation.

That being said, my husband and I had to give our depositions in that case. I'm not writing this to slam the court reporter who took our depositions. But I feel like I have to write something about this issue.

The court reporter who took our depositions was writing real time. For all you non court reporters, that means she had her steno machine hooked up to a laptop computer, and everything that was being said, she would type on her steno machine and the testimony would pop up on her laptop screen in English where anyone could read it. There were no attorney's hooked up to her laptop, which means the court reporter was the only one viewing the testimony as the deposition went along.

My problem is this...well, actually I have two problems (maybe more as I go along, but for right now just two that I can think of.) The first problem I had was I have never in my life heard of a court reporter interrupting the testimony as many times as she did. Granted, I was so worried about the court reporter and her getting a clean record, that I think I made it worse. As she said before the depo started, Court reporters make the worst witnesses. That might be true. Anyway, she asked us to not speak over each other a minimum of seven or eight times. It got to the point where the last time she threw up her hands, rolled her eyes, sighed and looked at me saying, You know better than that.

One other gripe I have along those same lines: None of that is in the actual written transcript. I cannot remember one time in the transcript where it says: THE REPORTER: Could you please stop talking over each other? In fact, there is not one THE REPORTER: anywhere in the transcript and like I said earlier she interrupted us more than seven or eight times during the depo.

In my opinion, transcripts are supposed to be word for word. Everything that is said on the record is in the transcript. Court reporters aren't supposed to pick and choose what goes in the record and what doesn't. And if the court reporter gets disgusted and throws her hands in the air and scolds you and her hands obviously aren't on her machine writing what she's saying, then that's one of the many reasons why you have tape backup. You still put every word in the transcript.

Secondly, and here's where the real time part comes in, when I tried to read through the original transcript, I could hardly read it because of the lack of punctuation. There were no --'s at the end of interrupted sentences. There were only a few ...'s at the end of incomplete thoughts, if any.

Following the advice of my attorney, I did not sign my transcript nor return it. We wound up settling the case before the transcript was due back to the reporter. I did, however, read through it. I have a list of changes and/or corrections about three or four pages long.

Since I have been out of practice for a while, is this a new trend as far as transcripts are concerned? I would never, ever put out a transcript like that. I took pride in my work...maybe too much pride. I don't know. But I tried to proofread transcripts like a regular, non court reporter would be reading it - meaning if you could read, you could understand all the testimony just as if you were sitting in the room when the deposition was taken.

To me, it seems like everyone thinks that faster is better. Let me tell you, that's not true. Turning out 10 unreadable transcripts in one week is not better than turning out 5 readable ones...I don't care how much money you make off of them.

Pass The Butter

~ ~ ~ ~ This is interesting . . . . ..

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back. It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings.

Do YOU know the difference between margarine and butter?

(Read on to the end...gets very interesting!)

* Both have the same amount of calories.
* Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams.
* Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.
* Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.
* Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few only because they are added

* Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.
* Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years..
And now, for margarine:
* Very high in trans fatty acids.
* Triple risk of coronary heart disease.
* Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

* Increases the risk of cancers up to five fold.
* Lowers quality of breast milk.
* Decreases immune response.
* Decreases insulin response.
And here's the most disturbing fact.... THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

* Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC..
This fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

You can try this yourself: Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things:
* No flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)
* It does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value; nothing will grow on it

* Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to "butter them up")!
Chinese Proverb:
"When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others."

Meat Seasoning Inside Shotgun Shells

Season Shot is the name of a new type of live ammunition containing buckshot loaded with meat seasonings.

When you shoot a bird (with a real shotgun) the buckshot disintegrates inside the flesh and releases its flavorings.

The idea came about with two guys who wanted to find a solution towards people breaking their teeth on buckshot when eating pheasant or turkey.

Season Shot comes in varieties of Cajun, Lemon Pepper, Garlic, Teriyaki, and Honey Mustard. Supposedly, they won't be available on the market until 2007.

So, is this for real?

I did a search on Google to find out some more. Other bloggers had already picked it up, and apparently at least one reporter was convinced enough to mention it in print in The Birmingham News. I found another newspaper article that someone posted on a forum.

I tried calling the company's phone number, which was listed on their website, and I left them a message, and haven't heard back from them.

What do you think?

Water Bottle Nipple Adapter

Water Bottle Nipple Adapter

Water Bottle Nipple Adapter
by Steve, Wednesday, December 06, 2006

What's strange about this product is that no one has thought of it yet. At least, that's what the inventor of the product says anyways.

The nipple adapts to just about any plastic water bottle and turns it into a baby-bottle. From the looks of it, it'll probably attach to plastic soda bottles too.

It's now selling at 7-Eleven and Circle-K stores for $1.95 each.

The idea is that you could stop the car at a convenience store, buy a bottle of water, along with a nipple adapter, and silence a crying baby on the spot.

The nipple adapter was created by Tommy Habeeb, former host of the reality-TV show "CHEATERS", and who is now hosting, "STAG: Last Night of Freedom". Tommy says...
"I was surprised that this product did not exist already. All of the retailers that I have met tell me it's a no-brainer that this product will sell."

Velcro Snake to clear Clogged Drains

Velcro Snake to clear Clogged Drains
The Flexisnake is like a plumbing snake, except it has a piece of Velcro at the end to pull hair out of a sink drain.

Hair is leading cause of clogged drains in bathroom sinks, so it stands to reason that Velcro can be used to clear out clogged drains.

You feed the Velcro end down a sink drain, and spin it around, and then pull it out. Since the hair clog is often entangled, the entire clog can be pulled out at once.

Cost is $2.95 each.

Too Soon Old

Bromoilgene: The poem was written by a disabled poet, David L. Griffith, of Ft. Worth, TX some 20 years ago. The surrounding story about it being found in the pocket of a dying man in a geriatric ward is fabricated. The actual title, "Old Too Soon," was changed to "Crabby Old Man" by whoever ripped it off Griffith's web site and began circulating it on the internet. Maybe someday David Griffith will get the credit that he deserves for being the author of this poem!

By David L. Griffith (Fort Worth, TX)

What do you see nurses? ...What do you see?
What are you thinking......when you're looking at me?
A crabby old man, ...........not very wise,
Uncertain of habit ....................with faraway eyes?
Who dribbles his food.......and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice....."I do wish you'd try!"
Who seems not to notice .........the things that you do.
And forever is losing .................... a sock or shoe?
Who, resisting or not..........lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding .......... the long day to fill?

Is that what you're thinking? Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes,'re not looking at me.

I'll tell you who I am ............ as I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten......with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters ......who love one another

A young boy of Sixteen ............with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now. .............a lover he'll meet.

A groom soon at Twenty heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows........that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now .............. I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide ........ and a secure happy home.

A man of Thirty ........ my young now grown fast,
Bound to each other ...... with ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons .......have grown and are gone,
But my woman's beside see I don't mourn.

At Fifty, once more, ...... babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children ......... my loved one and me.

Dark days are upon me ................ my wife is now dead
I look at the future .....................I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing .......young of their own.
And I think of the years...... and the love that I've known.

I'm now an old man.........and nature is cruel.
Tis jest to make old age ......look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles........grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone........where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass ..... a young guy still dwells,
And now and again battered heart swells.
I remember the joys............. I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living.......... over again.

I think of the years ...all too few......gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact........that nothing can last.

So open your eyes, people and see..
Not a crabby old man. Look closer....see........ME!!

Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within.....we will all, one day, be there, too!

Remember Me:


Subject: Math Teacher

A husband wrote the following letter for his wife and left it on the dining room table:

"To My Dear Wife,
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18-year-old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset. I shall be back home before midnight."

When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table:

"To My Dear Husband,
I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old. As you know, I am a math teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Ritz Carlton with Michael, one of my students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old.
As a successful businessman with an excellent knowledge of math, you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small difference; 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18. Therefore I will not be home until sometime tomorrow."
