Top 7 store sales you should NEVER miss!

The top 7 store sales you should never miss, plus tons of shopping insider secrets! From

Bubba and I got a sitter and set out for our “Bubba-only-goes-shopping-every-3-years-so-its-time-to-go-nuts-and-update-his-wardrobe” shopping mission. As we were shopping (click here to see our excitement) and oohing and aaahing over the deals, I was reminded of this post that I did a while ago on “the top 7 store sales you should NEVER miss!” that also includes tons of inside secrets that took intense amounts of hacking and investigative journalism to uncover. One tip? The “J” Months are the BEST times to go shopping, and January is no exception! I decided to re-post that old post so you could take advantage of the rest of this month and shop your little hearts out…until June hits and I tell you to do it all again :) So without further adieu, I present an oldie but goodie for you!

 The Top 7 Store Sales You Should Never Miss…and why!

Today on Studio 5 I did a segment on shopping, the best times to shop, and which stores have the best sales!
 It took HOURS of research and lots of investigative hacking, but I got all the goods for you!
