cheaper by the day

For clothes..
Shop on Monday for deals on bags, Tuesday for swimsuits, Wednesday for shoes and Sunday for dresses, a 2011 study shows. Pretty random right?

For even bigger steals, buy at the end of the month or better, the end of a quarter, like June when stores attempt to meet sales goals, slash prices.

For flights..
Book on a Tuesday at 3 P.M. ET, between 2 and 14 weeks before you plan to fly. That's when airline price wars peak, according to analysts.  Search for one ticket at a time. If you hunt for four, and only three cut-rate seats are left, the search engine will turn up only the higher price.

For electronics..
Buy laptops on Sunday. Prices are tied to deals in Sunday newspapers. Grab cheaper tech before a new model release, often in April. But there's no set schedule, so sign up for alerts on your dream toy.
