Most things are cheaper in season. Fruits and vegetables come to mind. The same is not true of clothing. If you shop for your winter clothes in the spring and your summer clothes in the fall, you’ll end up saving quite a bit of money. You’ll even save if you’re buying designer clothes since stores are not interested in keeping the previous year’s merchandise for next year.

It might take a little more time going through the racks, but the prices will be considerably lower. This goes for big-ticket items, too. You’ll find that you often can save a lot on installing a swimming pool or a swing set once the summer is over. Last year’s pool will work just as well as the newer version.
