Now that summer is almost over pretty much every high demand summer item is dropping like a rock in prices it seems. Example, fans dropping to like $10 and sunscreen lotion for a dollar or two. For things like the sunscreen lotion it can definitely make a lot of sense just to buy a couple now for use next year. Of course, make sure things like the expiry date is all good.
This type of saving method takes about one year of diligent shopping and stocking up in order for the full cycle to work of course. Example, in the summer time heating products will probably be cheap so you would buy it then for the upcoming winter. Basically, the key is to try and avoid buying things the last minute when it is in demand. Itâ€™s almost like doing all of your Christmas shopping way before the mad rushes arrive along with the markups.
Unless you are the one selling the item then that is a different story. And who knows, stocking up on items when they are cheap may give you a good opportunity to resell them for cheaper than average store prices and still make a profit when they are in demand.
