So, we thought we'd put together a few of our best recommendations of what you should consider getting now and what you should perhaps put off until later. So, here we go!
Desk & Laptop CompsBuying a laptop now can save you big bucks. I know, if you wait until just before school starts you'll be able to get the latest model with all the bells and whistles - but you'll also be paying top dollar for extras and technology that neither you nor your kids will most probably use. The best deals? Well that depends on what you want from the laptop. But as a general rule of thumb, go for discounted touchscreen desktop systems or 15" touchscreen laptops. Prices have plummeted for many mainstream models and retailers are introducing aggressive pricing and offering great deals to get you to buy. Now's also a good time to but peripherals and other comp related stuff.

But being first means your paying a premium price (prices nearly always drop after a couple of months( and your also the manufacturers guinea pig because you get to discover the bugs. So wait a month or two and then start shopping.
Generally speaking, the Summer's not the best time to find TV deals. But with the World Cup just having finished, many stores will be wanting to get rid of sets that they have left in stock. They'll be offering attractive prices and, if you go for off-brand sets (which are usually made by the major manufacturers anyway) you may be able to save even more cash.
Thats all for now, but we'll be back soon with some more great ideas to help you save, and make money with jollywallet.
