‘Tis the season for shopping! As the holidays approach, retailers will be working extra hard to take your cash. Like usual, you’ll see blockbuster deals on electronics, tools and toys this November. But the deals don’t stop there.
Here are some other useful and surprising savings you may see this month.
- Formal wear: Wedding dresses tend to go on sale in November, and the deals get even better after Thanksgiving when business is especially slow. Better yet, a lot of new styles are introduced in preparation for holiday engagements, so if you can get in there before the post-Christmas/New Year’s rush, you will find savings and selection.
- Weddings: You can also save by having a wedding this time of year, even more so if you live in a cold climate. You can save a substantial amount having a wedding on a Friday rather than a Saturday—just make sure your friends and family have enough warning or a flexible schedule.
- Home improvement services: As people head into the holiday season, home improvement projects are often put on hold to compensate for holiday purchases and home entertaining. Take advantage while business is slow and look for deals on carpeting, flooring and other renovation services.
- Housekeeper: As expenses increase around the holidays, many families are looking for budget cuts, and often the housekeeper is the first to go. You may find housekeepers offering deals to lure in new clients.
- Food storage: Holiday feasts and leftovers go hand-in-hand, so stores are helping you out by offering deals on all things food storage. Expect coupons and sales on foil, plastic wrap and containers. Stock up so you can send guests away with all the fixings for a post-Thanksgiving meal.
- Baking Supplies: The holiday baking rush has begun. Expect to see sugar, spices, cookie dough, cake mixes, pie crusts and plenty of other baking essentials on sale in November and through the end of the year.
Of course, November shopping is most commonly associated with Black Friday. But if you’d rather hang at home with friends and family instead of face the crowds at the mall, no worries.
