With the holidays right around the corner, we could all use any tips when it comes to saving a few bucks. Some items are at their lowest prices in November.

It's weird to think about, but every month has certain deals on specific items. Did you know you can get the best deal on a mattress in the month of February? Unfortunately, it's not February, so you may want to hold off on that. But in the meantime, you can save some dollars on some of these items...

Obviously, Halloween items are on sale in November. Most people know this. But how many actually take advantage of the decorations they can throw in the attic and have ready for next year? We're pretty sure most people take advantage of the candy on sale, though. A stop to Walmart in Herkimer proved this, as almost all the Halloween candy was gone on November 3rd.

But what about the less-obvious great deals in November? Well, according to MSN, you can save huge on electronics (especially TVs), movies, tools, kitchen items and small appliances, and other home goods.

A lot of this has to do with deals for Christmas and purchasing all those gifts for your loved ones, but if you're in need of a new blender or maybe a tool set for projects in the spring, this is the time to buy it. That's right, presents for yourself.

MSN does warn about a few items you should wait to buy including toys and apparel. They mention that toys will be at bigger discounts next month, and you should wait until the new year for the clothes-shopping.

Of course this is just a basic guide. If you look closely, you're sure to find deals on pretty much everything as we get closer to the holiday season. And even though this is the time for giving, don't forget to keep an eye out for some of the items you need around your own home. There's nothing wrong with picking up a thing or two for yourself... Just don't go overboard.
