Today my parents asked the family to go out on a mini get together since it was a holiday. It was a bit interesting as my dad was insistent in getting to certain places like a restaurant at certain times as during certain points of the day the businesses offer a 20% discount. My assumption of course is that these are usually the slower times for businesses and so they try to lure customers with special discounts. It was interesting to see how many people arrive say just two minutes after the discount period as if they had no knowledge of it.
I suppose with a bit of planning and research like this you can probably save a lot of money on your daily activities. In many ways that can do the scheduling for you too if you are confused at what activity you should do first.
