If you have been eyeing a couch for months and spot a yellow “last chance” tag on it, you need to buy it ASAP. These yellow tags mean that the item is no longer going to be in stock shortly, to make room for new inventory.

9. Wait for the kitchen sale

You can save thousands of dollars if you wait for the kitchen sale. If you want to remodel your kitchen, you absolutely must wait for this sale or you’re doing yourself a disservice. The sale happens 3-4 times a year and last for roughly 6 weeks each time. You can get 15-20% off a purchase of $2,000 or more. Kitchen renovations can run anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000, depending on how extensive your remodel is.
