Useful if you're already looking (especially if you need) some of this stuff.

TVs are always a fun point - yesteryear's black friday sales will be the normal prices in a very short while, so there's no need to stand in line to buy cheap crap cheaper.

I'm so sad that I'm doing the Uber Frugal challenge or I know where I'd be this weekend!

Gift cards - its never occurred to me to go get some from Kijiji (craigslist), other peoples gifts are my gains I suppose. Just saw a $25 card on sale for $15 from a store I buy groceries from.

Go Curry Cracker recently had a post about never paying retail again.  It showed where to buy gift cards on sale and a bunch of other tips.

"Bed, Bath, and Beyond", LOL. My one and only visit to that store went down as follows.

ME: Do you have decanter cleaners?

I'm all for winter root vegetables and citrus fruit.  They are a bargain right now.

I just checked my local craigslist for gift cards and they seem to run 10% off face value.  Unfortunately it's 10% off spas, pro sports concessions, and luxury retailers.

For those of us that just remodeled a bathroom and could use a few extra towels, the white sale comes in handy. Although, I'm ready for the reduced prices on strawberries already. :)

My Whole Foods had Florida strawberries for $3.99/lb yesterday. I was very surprised to see these int he Winter. I didn't buy any though.
