Buy in October - You might still be able to score some deals on back-to-school wardrobe essentials that are marked way down now. And this is when you’ll want to order personalized items, like a name-embossed leather tote, to make sure they’ll be here for the holidays.
Buy in November - People are willing to line up in the middle of the night on Black Friday for a reason - that’s the best time for the best deals. If you’re buying electronics and home appliances, you can find them for a fraction of the retail price on November 24.

You can also find lower prices on tools and gift cards in December, as well as Champagne, which gets discounted ahead of New Year’s Eve. Cheers to finishing your shopping early this year!
