The Best Things to Buy in November

Simple. Thrifty. Living.

It’s November, which means there will be weeks of sales leading up to the ultimate day for deal hunters — Black Friday and now Cyber Monday. However that doesn’t mean everything on sale reaches the lowest price of the year. Here are the top buys for this month.

Now is the time to buy major appliances; from dishwashers to vacuums, major retailers slash their prices. Several new model appliances make their debut this month, so it’s the perfect time to buy last year’s model. You will find the lowest prices during the week leading up to Black Friday.

In the market for new pots and pans? Or hoping to get your mother-in-law that KitchenAid stand mixer she’s been eyeing for years? November is the best month for kitchen goods and appliances. Retailers such as Sears, Amazon and Walmart slash prices more this month than any other time of year.

With the holidays approaching, bridal gowns and wedding accessories see a dip in sales, which is good news for the consumer. Bridal retailers tend to offer 10 percent to 25 percent off this month. Watch for sales from major retailers and your favorite boutiques.

This is a good time to buy tablets, because prices will drop significantly, especially around Black Friday. Looking for a higher end tablet without the iPad pricing? Consider an Amazon Fire, selling for only $50.

Deal-hunters wait for these days all year long — Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Regardless of your preference, it’s important to prepare for the biggest sales of the year. Make sure you sign up for your favorite retailer’s mailing list and subscribe to their social media pages; this will keep you in the loop on what promotions they are offering. Planning on hitting up those 5 a.m. sales? Review their newspaper ad inserts and visit the store prior to Black Friday.

Experts expect laptops to top the list of door-buster deals on Black Friday. Apple fan? Macbooks and other Apple products will also see a dip in price, just make sure to avoid deals via the Apple store. You are much more likely to get a better deal from other retailers. In fact, in past years resellers’ prices have been 13 percent lower than the Apple store.

The sales for TVs will start this month, so if you’ve been looking to upgrade now is the time. Experts say TVs 60” or bigger will see the biggest drop in price this month. Retailers will also be slashing prices of 32” TVs.

There are a number of deals to be had this month. However, if you’re in the mood to book a vacation, you’re better off waiting until December.
