Now that the weather is getting quite nippy, you might find more desire to get things done {especially before the snow piles up if you live where it snows!}. I’ve found that having cooler weather makes cleaning and organizing easier, but the key is to tackle it before the weather becomes a hinderance!

This month is a great time to buy items that go on sale in December for discounted prices.

Gift Cards ~ According to several articles I’ve read, gifts cards are the most desired gift this holiday season!

Toys ~ Now is the time to stock up on toys! Especially brand name toys like Barbie, Fisher-Price, LEGO, and the like!

Wedding Dresses ~ If you are getting married in the coming year, December is the best time to get your dress for the best price! Retailers try to make way for new styles for the new year and discounts of about 30% can be found!

Winter Gear ~ December is the month to buy that winter coat and apparel you’ve been wanting and needing. Research shows that the deepest deals are found in December.

TV’s ~ December is a great time to get a TV at a great price.

HINT: Wait on high end electronics, a new car (until the VERY end of December), and exercise equipment.
