Lawnmower/BBQ/Snowblower - End of season (prevent storing bulky items)

Clothing - Six weeks after first comes out (then the markdowns start)

Automobile - October to December (discounts on older models, bigger discounts in Dec but smaller selection)

Farmer's Market - end of day (do not want to pack up remaining items)

Outside Flea Market - last weekend of season (seller wants to avoid storage)


  1. Very useful tips... love the new colors!!

  2. And mattresses on Memorial Day. Why? I'm not sure, but it is traditionally the sales event where the manufacturers offer the deepest discounts, and the retailers pile more on top to compete with each other! And since most quality mattresses are actually made to order, it's not to clear out excess inventory!

  3. Thank you for the valuable information.


  4. Great stuff ... thanks!
