Between shopping for books, boots, housewares and handbags, the ease and appeal of online shopping is both tempting and wallet-draining. Not only must you remember where to shop, but a savvy online buyer must know exactly when the best deals are available. Luckily, the insightful shopping bloggers at Extrabux dug up some useful information on what to buy and when.

Top 10 biggest spending excuses!

Based on price data Extrabux spent two years gathering, the hard-earned results show that prices of specific goods can fluctuate on any given day of the week. Take computers, for instance. If you're purchasing electronics online, stick to Mondays. Buying televisions and digital cameras earlier in the week will guarantee you the lowest prices. Sunday is ideal for spending money on major appliances, while jewelry is best bought on Wednesdays. For the bookworms out there (us included), Extrabux suggests you'll snag your cheapest reads on Saturdays.

So forget about crossing your fingers in hopes that your dream washer will go on sale. Instead, mark your calendar and look forward to lower prices!
