All heard the saying timing is everything.
But how much can timing really impact our live.
A new book -- -- all down for us telling us the best times to buy things and go places to save money and time and improve your life all around.
-- -- -- -- the author of buy shoes on Wednesday tweet at four.
And he joins us now with some interesting facts of win you should do things we knew -- even.
Break -- an engagement won't get that -- head to that in a moment my personal favorite.
But there are days of the week you should actually shop for particular items and we have a graphic to break it down for everyone.
Let's put that up on the screen and you can explain why -- want to buy things on a particular day.
Okay so first of -- Saturday you -- you -- Saturday you're suggesting.
And outerwear Cindy if you're aware.
Any outerwear -- on Saturdays.
Well this site south of -- dot com did a great job -- looking at millions of bits of data and telling us when we can get the best discounts this is buying online.
And like -- said this is all based on.
Lots of data and they broke it down by day and you can look by day and see when you should -- -- Monday dress pants 50% savings men's apparel 40% off on Tuesdays shoes and children's clothing.
You know 40% on -- that's a -- -- to get for children's clothing yeah up.
And Allison a women's handbags Thursday's you get 36% savings for women's handbags are ready and that's and a third says.
That's strange so isn't it just figured out what day people are what day real.
Are retailers are giving these discount.
It's right there's really no rhyme or reason just but it's based on all -- sales data they look at that some of the top retailers in the country.
And that's how -- basis.
But there isn't primaries and the things you should not do for example on the weekend you're talking a weekend people here in -- weekend audience on the weekend you should not take that car in for repair why.
Everyone else is doing that on Saturdays it's a big air -- day.
The best stated view that is usually Mondays.
People don't want to be late for work on Monday of all the days of the week they don't want to be late on Monday so they don't take their car in early on Monday.
And sometimes you can use -- your advantage in work and negotiate with the auto repair shop.
A lot of people get their hair done on Saturday Saturdays -- busy busy -- -- you say that's a mistake don't get your hair done on a Saturday why.
Well the best -- too weak to do that -- stylists say is on Tuesday because it's the slowest day.
They have a lot of time to do your hair.
It's less stressful for them and they -- fewer mistakes on Tuesday if I want David Clinton to give me a favor and I'm sure I do what I should ask them.
Behavior psychologists have -- this and they say that we are more agreeable leader in the week.
So why not Friday dwell on Friday we're thinking about the weekend spending time with our family and friends so Thursday is the best they hit your coworker of for a favor pension now.
Now I have always heard differing theories on win at the time of days you should look for a job interviews -- this is another party of of the time of day.
The best time to go for a job interview before that sort of -- hang over time so you say 10 AM and 11 AM is a great time right 10 AM 11 AM and 3 PM it's easy to explain why the times are you shouldn't do it.
You come in and the interviewer is just gotten to work may be distracted from the morning and then.
In the early afternoon your body temperature drops and that makes us all sleet here so that's why one into isn't good and it's four and five people are thinking about.
Dinner they're thinking about after work so we can interviewed at 1011.
Or three you can have the attention of the person is interviewing you grade.
Got a -- and then get there's a best time and today get gas at the pump why well if the gas prices are rising as they are now the best time is before 10 -- Because what these gas station managers do first things they check out their competition.
If they're competition is raise prices overnight and they're gonna do it but they usually don't get around to that until about 10 o'clock so if you buy your gas before ten you're likely to get.
-- gas for less money removal and the audience has been waiting to find out -- is the best time to break off and engagement you say.
In the evening why and this is the best time to break bad news in general.
These -- just -- somebody write a lot.
In the evening our blood pressure drops are -- drops.
We have less chance to get a heart attack this -- that the joke but the American Heart Association takes this very seriously.
They say -- -- employers when they do layoffs should always do layoffs in the afternoon because in the morning.
We just are more likely.
I think it is three times more likely to have a heart attack in the morning like among the army after starting the workweek Monday -- -- worst exactly and -- -- while the campaigns are released there would.
They're dirty laundry until Friday evening -- I don't have we got -- -- July 10 straight up -- -- -- -- it's a really fun -- you.
Buy -- on Wednesday and tweet at 4 o'clock that's that's this -- FaceBook have a garage sale you name it it's all here mark thank you for being here.
