When you think about Monday, you think “Crap, gotta go back to work.” Personally, I don’t. I always think “crap, I have to get up so I can get the kids to school on time.” I love Summers, and weekends…..OH, WAIT. We’re always on the go, so sleeping in doesn’t happen too often these days. However, I do love that I’m not dreading Monday because of a job, working for someone else….that sucked.
Anyway……let’s see what can lift your spirits? How about a bit of shopping? Hard core goodies that give you lots of BANG for your BUCKS!
Mondays are all about:
Cars. Guess what? The weekend’s over, sales guys are totally depressed about their lackluster performances, and they are CRAVING a sale. Now’s the time to jump on them, ride them, and get a great price. Don’t feel guilty. They’d take advantage of you in a HEART BEAT, so use their depression to your advantage!
Electronics. This one I had to actually do some research on, because honestly, I wasn’t able to read the sales, and trends for this. However, according to Kelli B. Grant on SmartMoney, computers, TVs, digital cameras, and video games seem to be 2% to 4% cheaper on Mondays. Apparently, manufacturers provide discounts on Mondays, and retailers love to pass those on as soon as possible. I’m going to take her word for it…..because I don’t truly see this trend this year. But time will tell, I mean, it’s only April. Keep checking on Mondays, see if it rings true for what you want to buy!
**Online for the electronics, by the way. This might be why I don’t recall any of these types of trends. I rarely look for electronics, let alone shop online for them.
What have you found to be a great deal to buy on a Monday? A lot of local bakeries will give you a discount on day old breads, cookies, and other treats……they bag them up, or box them up, put them in a section of the bakery and label it DAY OLD BAKED GOODS. They’re perfectly delicious, and honestly, Sundays usually have leftovers that are a fantastic selection on Monday mornings!
How about in your neighborhood?
