Did you know that there are different things on sale each month of the year?
A while back I put together a Month to Month Shopping Guide that lists the best items to buy each month to save money!
Here I am highlighting the best items to buy this month!
Black Friday and other holiday sales are in full swing this month. They actually are starting earlier and earlier, and right now – as November begins – you can get deals galore at major stores like Walmart and Best Buy.
But because of supply shortages this year, the key is to SHOP EARLY.
And I recommend using my BLACK FRIDAY PRICE COMPARISON SHEET 2021! I list hundreds of items and you can compare store to store for the best prices!
I also recommend shopping locally!
Check out my Twin Cities Business Directory for Moms, to find many great local businesses to support!
November is the best time to buy:
-Wedding gowns: Boutiques are clearing out inventory between now and Christmas
-Halloween clearance (while it lasts)
–Thanksgiving meal fixings
-Baking supplies for the holidays
-Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales! Best deals on electronics, toys.
Seasonal produce on sale now:
Apples, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cranberries, leeks, mushrooms, oranges, parsnips, pears, persimmons, pomegranates, pumpkins, rutabagas, spinach, sweet potatoes, tangerines, turnips, winter squash.
What NOT to Buy Right Now:
-Winter clothing. Now these items are in demand, so prices are higher, with the exception of some deals. But if you can, wait until January for new items. HOWEVER – you CAN get great deals on used or like new winter items at thrift stores AND at kids consignment sales like Just Between Friends.
-Gift cards. Wait until early December for this. For example, Target has their annual 10% off gift cards sale in early December.
-Exercise equipment. Sure, you may be starting to pack on the cold-weather pounds (I sure feel like I am!). But January is when the best prices are for anything having to do with fitness. If you want to get in shape now, check out my recent guide, Hot Deals to Help You Lose Weight. For example:
Want a fitness deal? Sign up for a Get Healthy U TV premium membership for only $3 for a FULL YEAR right now!!! I have a membership and I LOVE IT!
Veterans Day – 50% off clothing, shoes and home items at thrift stores like Savers and Unique Thrift Stores
-Veterans should seek special discounts, such as at Applebees where veterans get a free meal
