The Best Time to Shop For the Holidays

The following is a guest post from our friends at The Budget Fashionista.

Savings.com shared this useful infographic revealing the best and worst dates to shop for the holidays this year. Categories include electronics, apparel, toys, jewelry, and food, to name a few.

What They Say: The average American spent more than $700 on holiday gifts in 2011, but carefully planning when you buy can make all the difference.

What We Say: If you’re the type of shopper with savings as a major agenda, (this means any shopper who isn’t related to Warren Buffet or the Royal Fam) you would want to take note of these dates in your shopping / gifts planner. The $5 to $10 savings may not seem much at the moment. But if you’re shopping for 10-15 people, and we multiply the difference by that number, then that can make for at least an extra hundred dollars that you can spend on a well-deserved gift for yourself.

Check out the complete infographic below.
