Collection of wedding dresses in the shopEvery month, there are specific items that go on sale. Not every store will announce these “annual sales” (but some will). Wait to buy something until the month that it typically goes on sale, and you will end up saving money. It pays to plan ahead. Here are some things that you should buy in November while the price is nice.

Baby items
No, I’m not talking about formula and diapers. Instead, November is the month to buy fancy baby clothing, warm baby blankets, and other things that would make cute Christmas gifts. Many of the companies that make baby items are going to be pushing the “Baby’s First Christmas” concept in November. Ornaments that say “Baby’s First Christmas”, with the year printed on it, will also make nice gifts for new parents.

Wedding dresses
Getting married in 2014? Now is the best time to buy your wedding dress. November is the month that the prices on wedding dresses begin to drop. They get lower as we go through December, but if you wait too long, you may end up will less to choose from. Many stores that sell wedding dresses also sell dresses for bridesmaids and “Mother of the Bride”. There may be sales on those types of dresses going on this month, too.

Black Friday sales
The biggest sales of the entire year happen in November! Last year, several stores opened their doors on Thanksgiving day. Others extended their Black Friday sales through Cyber Monday (and into the next week). Now is the time to start looking around to see when the stores will be open and what will be on sale. It is always a good idea to make a Black Friday plan in order to maximize the time you spend shopping.

Aluminum Foil and Plastic Wrap
Ok, these aren’t the most exciting things to buy. However, they are necessary. What are you going to do with the leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner? For many people, the answer is to wrap them in aluminum foil, or cover them with plastic wrap, and put them in the refrigerator.

Or, you could wrap up some leftovers really well and send food home with guests. Stock up on the aluminum foil and plastic wrap now, and you won’t have to worry about running out of it when you need it. Avoid a frantic run to the grocery store at the last minute!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
