I enjoyed Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon so much that I just had to share some of the tips Mark Di Vincenzo provides with you. Here are a few my favorites (with a brief description):
1. When is the best time of the day to buy shoes? (My all time favorite…you all know why!)
Late afternoon. That’s when your feet have swelled and are at their largest size. Buying shoes in the late afternoon means they'll fit just fine in the morning when your feet are at their smallest.
2. When is the best time of the month to buy a car?
The end. That’s when dealerships are most desperate to make their quotas.
3. When is the best day of the week to eat dinner out?
Tuesday. Most restaurants don’t receive deliveries on Saturdays and Sundays and many are closed on Mondays…food deliveries start early in the week, so the food served on Tuesday is fresh.
4. When is the best time to go to a Department of Motor Vehicle Office?
Midmorning, mid-afternoon, middle of the week, and middle of the month. The worst time of the month is the end…the worst day of the week is Saturday.
5. When is the best month to buy toys?
October or November. New toys often arrive in stores in September, and retailers will wait a few weeks before lowering prices to try to beat their competitors’ prices.
6. Which is the best day of the week to shop for airline tickets?
Monday or Tuesday. That’s when airlines often lower fares, and in fact, Tuesday is when most travelers buy tickets. Airlines raise fares later in the week.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Given the times we live in…an uncertain economy, over the top prices and no clear end to it all, this book gives us ways to make life easier and hopefully better.
