Holy Moly, I can’t believe October is over! It went by pretty quickly, at least for me. I always find that the fall months go by the quickest – maybe because that’s when school starts up again and life gets busy.
Well, one benefit to another month rolling around is that there’s another list of sales! Yay! I always start getting really excited for the shopping in November because the stores are so festive and it’s finally appropriate to listen to Christmas music and start your holiday shopping! There are quite a few good things that go on sale this month, so let’s get into it!
- Luxury Items – This is a broad category, but retail analysts say that mid-November is the best time to buy anything with a $500+ price point, especially on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. This is the prime time to snatch up any designer gifts you’ve been eyeing for friends and family (or for yourself, no judgement) because they likely won’t go on sale again before Christmas and the stock won’t be very good when Boxing Day sales roll around. Look to buy these items from bigger retailers (Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Ave, etc) as they are most likely to have store-wide discounts, such as 20% off.
- Pyjamas – Funny enough, PJs are one of the biggest sale items this month. I’m not sure why this is, but if you always buy new PJs for the holidays or to give as gifts, snatch them up this month to get the best possible deal.
- Athletic Gear – This one is a bit more expected since very few people attempt to start a new diet or fitness regime this time of year. With all the sweets and hearty meals happening between Halloween and Christmas, athletic retailers struggle to get you into their gear and out exercising. If you want to get some new sneakers or have a fitness buff to buy for, November is your month!
If you’re planning to take advantage of the luxury item sales this month, take a peak at my guide on knowing what’s a good item to splurge on so you can get the best bang for your buck! Keep an eye out closer to Black Friday where I’ll be making a list of all of my favourite sales and discounted items that I’ll share with you on here.
Happy November, and happy shopping!
