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 2022! I list hundreds of items and you can compare store to store for the best prices!
I also recommend shopping locally!

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
Food storage containers – these are often on sale and you’ll need them to store any leftover turkey!
Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales! Best deals on electronics, toys. Black Friday is November 25th, and Cyber Monday is Monday, November 28th. Also there’s Small Business Saturday on November 26th, and Giving Tuesday on November 29th.
Home services – demand is lower in the winter months for home contractors and services so consider hiring someone for a home project now
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 Target 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 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!
Seasonal produce on sale now:
Veterans Day – November 11th. Get 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
