8 Best Things to Buy in November

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of November? If you’re a shopper, Black Friday and Cyber Monday might be on par with that other day when people eat turkey – what’s it called again? And it’s the month when you’ll find some of the best deals of the year.

The good news is you don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving night to find low prices, especially if you shop online. Here are some of the best deals to track this month.

TVs and Electronics
Just about anyone with a screen has seen viral video of the fights that break out over big screen TVs. Yes, the prices are that good; but this year skip the madness, spend turkey day with your family, and order online on Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2016. Among the most popular electronics items are HDTVs, especially 4K. Go with this highly-rated Samsung 55″ LED 2160p Smart 4K Ultra HD TV.

Computers and Tablets
‘Tis the season for new desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. The best news? With Intel’s faster new Skylake processors released in September, there’s a glut of last generation models on sale. These computers and software work just fine for the average family. Apple lovers know that the best the brand can usually do is offer a gift card with purchase. Buy online at big box stores to save the most. For example, you can expect to shave about $200 off a MacBook Pro 13.3-inch notebook at Best Buy.

Discount Cookware
Rarely are good deals and necessity so perfectly aligned. If you have a crowd to cook for over the holidays, get your oven mitts on cookware, bakeware and small appliances. Some of the most popular appliances this season are upscale blenders and food processors and the Instant Pot, a programmable pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer and warmer. It’s achieved cult-like status among busy moms and whole foods aficionados alike.

Get going on those last minute home improvement projects, or replace the old drill that was on its last thread in August. You’ll find November deals on both power and hand tools. And the handy person in your life will probably thrill to see a new miter saw under the tree. Save the most by ordering online and picking up in the store. Popular this year are cordless stick drills and this brand new, adjustable length screwdriver by Klein Tools. Buy direct from the company or use a coupon code for Amazon.

Popular Toys
Toy sales on Black Friday have outshone December sales for three years now. Plan to shop Black Friday for the major wants, and pick up extras in December. Every year has an I-gotta-have-it gizmo. This year, the “it” toy is the Star Wars collection, hands down. The hottest: Legendary Jedi Master Yoda with voice recognition, the ability to speak 115 phrases, and 360-degree motorized movement.

Clothing and Accessories
Everyone knows Black Friday is one of the best times to snag a new outfit, especially what’s on-trend right now. Sometimes it’s important to eyeball the fabric and cut; but some things, like hoodies, jeans, and things you’ve bought before, are easier and cheaper to buy online. This is a good time to stack coupon codes with markdowns for an even better deal. In demand: a faux suede moto jacket from the limited edition LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection at Kohl’s.

News flash:  the trick-or-treat candy you’ve shoved in the back of the closet is now half off in stores.  If it’s not something worth stashing away for next year, like chocolate, indulge your sweet tooth now. You might need the pick-me-up during shopping marathons. Costume Halloween retailers are also eager to get rid of costumes, yard animatronics and other decorations. Think ahead and get some for next year, like this Gaseous Fog Zombie Animatronic.

Retailers are predicting a strong season to parallel a strengthening economy and lower unemployment. Perhaps you’re just ready to flex those shopping muscles, too. If so, November is the perfect time to fire up the computer and go for it.
