This month is a great time to cash in on deals -- and not just because of Black Friday. However, there are certain items that are better bargains than others. Ready to shop? Here's what you can truly save on this month.
If you need a new roasting pan for your Thanksgiving feast, you're in luck. November is a great time to find sales on cookware and kitchen supplies. According to DealNews, you'll find 35 percent more bargains this month than you'll see all year.
If you're well-stocked in the kitchen, now is also the time to cash in on deals for your closet. On Black Friday, you'll find the best discounts of the year on shoes and apparel. In recent years, brands like Levi's, Nautica and Banana Republic have offered coupons that took up to 50 percent off already on-sale items, while PUMA and Nike took 30-50 percent off everything on their websites.
That's some major savings, but you may have to pay for shipping or spend a minimum to get free shipping on your purchases. But, if you're looking to refresh your wardrobe or gift clothing items this holiday season, you won't have a problem meeting purchase requirements.
While you can save big on kitchenware and apparel this month, you should avoid shopping for toys in November, even on Black Friday. Even though you can save up to 50 percent off on the major shopping day, you'll find even better discounts during the two weeks before Christmas.
Some deals are better than others, and while November kicks off the holiday shopping season, it's best to wait on some items. Keep these tips in mind before you buy and you'll be ahead of the shopping game.
