Smarter Savings: TVs On Sale
December 31, 2011 at 12:00 AM

If your household is anything like mine, certain people are planning some serious TV time in the next few weeks. Bowl games and then the NFL playoffs mean the sports fan in my house (who is NOT me) will be enjoying some extended couch time.

And if you're watching your games on a bulky old set, now is a really great time to spring for a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV.  KMart has TVs on sale, some at such great prices they can't actually reveal the price until you put it in your cart (if you're shopping online). Many name brand TVs are $100 or more off list price and some are as much as $300 off. 

Our football team (the Detroit Lions) is actually doing well this year after going 0-16 a few years ago and will be in the playoffs for the first time in a long time, so I can't begrudge my husband a chance to watch every game until the ride comes to an end. I may even be extra nice and make snacks. And my alma mater is playing in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 2. I must admit the appeal of football escapes me, but it is fun to root on your team.

What football games are you watching this big sports week? Or are you pretty much meh about the whole thing?

    My husband will watch football this weekend.  I couldn't care less about it.  Before the Super Bowl is the very best time to catch a tv on sale out of the whole year.
