Get a deal during December

Do you realize that there are certain items which you can get a good deal on,  or a better price on, during the month of December?

I've just come to realize that there are cycles when it comes to the world of selling retail goods.  Everything from seasonal items, to produce and even vehicles all will drop prices during certain times of the year.  I've always tried to pick up Christmas wrapping paper and lights at the end of December, in preparation for next year.    Yet, if you are in the market for a new car, December is a great time to get out and see what incentives dealers are offering.

Our van has been causing us some grief and it will be soon time to make the decision to either invest in our older van, or take the leap and purchase a new-to-us vehicle.   Not being too knowledgeable on the ins and outs of various makes and models of cars, I always turn to family and close friends to get their input and advice, as to what is a good buy and reliable car.   My in-laws have been driving a blue Honda CR-V for several years, and they love it.  They think it offers a smooth ride, which is really important to my mother-in-law, as she has a hip replacement and can't stand to be riding in a vehicle which is bumpy.    They have positive reviews on its gas consumption and like the compact size.

When it comes to shopping and spending money, I try my best to never pay full price for anything.  I will be watching closely for (car) dealer incentives, which will be sure to be offered throughout the month.

I am the same I don't like paying full price for anything either. I try to wait until I see something on sale - but sometimes you need something right away!

I try to pay only when it is on sale but as Denise said, sometimes you need to pay full price

I also try to wait until things come on sale, but there are definitely those times where you have to pay full price for what you want.

I always buy things at the end of the season when they are on sale, especially clothes for my little one. The problem with that is that there was a baby boom here the year she was born and if I'm not really fast everything in her size is sold out quick!

Who knew that you could even get a deal on cars at this time. My cousin has a Honda SUV and raves about it. You get what you pay for!

This is a nice SUV, we are looking to get into an SUV later on next year. I hope we get a good deal. :)
