So when is the best time to do things? Whether you're shopping, or trying to get a raise, timing is everything. This information comes to us courtesy of this month's Reader's Digest.
The best time to buy a car is the end of the month. Sales people have monthly quotas to meet. They usually want to deal near the end of the month.
The best time to buy a house is September. Spring and summer are the time to sell. By September, sellers may be willing to deal and most kids need to be relocated to a new school by then.
You should make doctor appointments between 8 and 9am. Doctors overbook appointments, so the later in the day, the more backed up they are.
The best time to go grocery shopping is between 9:30am and 2pm Tuesday and Wednesday. That's when the crowds are small and the shelves are newly stocked. That equals more stuff, fewer shoppers.
