But have you ever thought about what you shouldn’t buy in December?
If you’re like us, the answer is no.
But a personal loan website called AmOne.com has posted a list of seven things to resist when you check your list.
Camera: If you can wait just a few weeks, the sale price could drop at the end of January, after the Consumer Electronics Show, as older models are discounted to make room for new releases.
Exercise tools: Everyone tries to lose 10 pounds in the new year, right? Some prefer to do it at home; Waiting until the month of the sale can save you some money.
Holiday decorations: Just like the fun-size candy on November 1st, the holiday decorations will go on sale on December 26th.
Package: Sales are plentiful around the holidays, but even more so in late summer after the busy tourist season.
Jewels: The summer months can be the best time to buy jewelry because there are fewer gift-giving holidays. Mid-April is also a popular time to save, right after tax season.
Electric tools: Americans celebrate Father’s Day in June, but they can also celebrate deals available on instruments. Usually, the price is about 25% off if you’re buying the Tim Taylor of a lifetime.
Laptop: If you can wait eight months, back-to-school often offers the best deals, especially if you can afford a laptop model that’s at least a year old.
