Best Time to Buy Everything Calendar

By Ashley Watson, writer for dealnews

Longing for more sales now that the holiday shopping season is over? If you can't wait until next November, then you need this quick fix: Consumer Reports' "Best Time to Buy" Calendar. Because finding the best deals isn't just about big sales events, sometimes discounts on certain products are also determined by the time of year they are purchased.

Keep in mind that the best time to save doesn't always mean finding the best selection. It is also important to continue watching for sales alerts because there are always exceptions.

Here's a sampling of items from Consumer Reports' list of best buying times throughout the year. For the full list, click here.

February Houses and condos, indoor furniture
March Digital cameras, TVs, small consumer electronics

August Air conditioners, backpacks, snow throwers
September Bikes, gas grills
