      gcm0904,

      Thank you! I'll share what I know, or what I think I know. And what I know.. is that this hub will keep changing because I just continue to learn more about what goes on sale on which month. For instance, I just found out that guitars, typically go on sale on Memorial Day and Independence Day, so I will add guitars on the list under May and July. Please, feel free to add on to the list. Thanks again!

      MarioByDesign,

      It's alll good, my man! I appreciate you clarifying that and I appreciate you actually giving me some ideas, this ain't set in stone so we can definitely make some changes. I've edited the February section and added a few items from the December section. Which items, in particular, should we buy in February instead of buying in December in your opinion?

      My apologies, I would think we should buy the "December" items in February when they on on sale. Your thoughts?

      MarloByDesign,

      maybe it's too early or something, but i don't know what you're saying.. "you should be the 'December' items in February when they on on sale?"

      i read it about ten times, it's not making sense. can you be a little more clearer?
