MONDAY - BEST DAY TO BUY ELECTRONICS

Buy TVs, computers, cameras, video games because manufacturers apply rebates/discounts today.

*Extra tip - also great day to buy car because it's a low foot traffic day, giving you more negotiating power.

TUESDAY- BEST DAY TO BOOK TRAVEL

Buy plane tickets, specifically Tuesday around 3 pm - this is when airlines post deals; this is when you'll find the newest deals and cheapest seats. Try sites like farecompare.com.

*Extra tip - also good day to buy gas before prices go up as weekend approaches.

WEDNESDAY - BEST DAY FOR ENTERTAINMENT

Bargain admission prices to movie theaters, shows, amusement parks, and miniature golf courses because it is a slow day.

THURSDAY - BEST DAY TO BUY CLOTHING

This is when department stores stock shelves for the weekend and start their sales. Best day for best selection.

FRIDAY - SATURDAY: SHOP ONLINE

Check stores near you, but no general rules for these days. Shop online and use coupon codes.

SUNDAY

Best day to buy big appliances (washers/dryers, stoves, fridges, etc.).

Also the best day to buy groceries -- this is when the sales start. Add Sunday coupons and weekly grocery store sales to maximize savings.

    The future is here when it comes to vehicles. The auto industry has packed nearly 1,000 automobiles into the Jacob Javits Center on Manhattan's West Side for the 2014 NY Auto Show.   Among the 'must-sees' is a hydrogen-powered vehicle and a prototype with cameras that allow you to see the ground underneath as you drive over it.

    “I was supposed to be dead before last Easter," said Valerie Harper about her diagnosis of cancer in the lining around her brain.  Harper's indomitable spirit and the support from fans of her character 'Rhoda' in the 1970s hit series 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' has kept her going. "It’s a tasty headline," said Harper about the magazine where the inaccurate report was made.
