Holiday shopping: What to buy and where to shop in November

While holiday shopping madness can bring stress, it can also be one of the most thrilling times of the year--if you know where to shop and what to buy!

Several categories hit their lowest discount prices during November, especially between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Don't sleep through the rest of the month, because there are deals to be had every single day.

What to buy this month:

1) Winter Apparel, Accessories and Shoes

2) Cookware

3) Electronics

4) Beauty

What not to buy this month:

1) Jewelry

Hold off on any jewelry purchases until the new year. While jewelry is a hot-ticket item for the holidays, January brings savings in the form of Valentine's Day discounts.

2) Toys

Toys are not usually at their lowest price point during November. Retailers create a sense of urgency to purchase new toy arrivals early, because hot items may not be available later on, but the best deals typically occur during the first two weeks of December.
