Find the Best Deals
There are deals to be had these days when it comes to most consumer products, but at the same time, families are being more careful with how they spend their money. Want the best for your brood, but don’t want to break the bank to get it? CF has put together a comprehensive guide to help you find the best deals all year round. Plan ahead with this calendar, and you’ll score huge savings on clothes, electronics and big-ticket goods by holding out for clearance sales and off-season discounts.
Buy: February and August
Traditionally, like many other products, the best time to buy outdoor gear is at the end of the season when stores are making room for new inventory. Start looking now if your teen has her heart set on a new snowboard or snag a bigger toboggan for your preschooler for next winter. Look for good prices on running shoes, bikes and camping gear in July and August.
