F.A.Q: Keeping Track of Sale Cycles

Today’s frequently asked question is from reader Patti.  She wants to figure out the sales cycle of products.

Her question is this:

Short of going through all my receipts, is there a system to figure out the sale cycles for the products I use most frequently.  Knowing when items are getting marked down would sure help in saving even more dollars and help me to plan more effective purchases. Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

So let’s help Patti out. Do you keep track of sales cycles?  Do you think it’s worth the extra effort?  If you do keep track, how do you do it?  A book, a spreadsheet, in your head?  Please share your tips for Patti and others.
