The Best Non-Holiday Items to Shop for Right Now
This Months Markdowns
Wedding Dresses: November and December fall just outside of the traditional “Wedding Season”. This makes them the best two months of the year to go shopping for wedding dresses and other wedding related apparel. Many retailers are even offering substantial discounts on other wedding merchandise such as invitations and décor this month.
Clothing and Apparel: With Back to School over and Christmas just around the corner, massive sales on clothing and apparel can always be found in November. A good thing to, since many people have started their holiday shopping and clothing always tops many wish lists. Now is a good time to start keeping an eye out of printable coupons, in store deals and discounts, online coupon codes and customer appreciation sales.
Halloween Items and Other Merchandise: With Halloween behind us, stores are rushing to get rid of last years stock. This means huge markdowns on all Halloween items; especially chocolates, candies, and other edibles. The majority of stores mark their prices down by as much as 50% the day after Halloween. However, by mid November it is not uncommon to find prices as low as 75 to 80% off.
Televisions and Electronics: November is the perfect time to purchase a television. Especially with more Canadian retailers taking advantage of Black Friday sales. Now that stores are making room for next years stock, and the gift giving season is just around the corner, television prices are lower than ever.
Candles: Each November candles and candle gift sets go on sale. Not only do these make excellent gift choices, but they are also a fantastic way to make your home feel and smell great. Not to mention the fact that candles can be stored almost indefinitely. This is also a great time of year to find high value coupons for candles, so pay close attention to the weekly circulars.
Cookware: November is the best month to be a chef. You will see many amazing deals on cookware in almost every retailer across the board. Now that wedding and graduation seasons are done for another year, stores need to clear out their fancy cookware inventory in order to make room for mass holiday themed merchandise. This mean substantial savings on high quality cookware items.
November Produce Sales: Apples, Bananas, Kiwi, Lemons, Pears, Pomegranates, Tangerines, Beets, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Cucumber, Lettuce, Mushrooms, Onions, Peppers, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radishes, Squash, Tomatoes,
