November is a big shopping month with Black Friday, Cyber Monday and just regular Thanksgiving day sales happening this month. So here are a few things that you should buy this month, and something you might wanna hold off on according to AOL.

BUY: Apple devices
The latest Apple products rarely ever go on sale, but you can find really great deals on Apple devices, like the iPad or the Apple Watch, that are a generation old. Just don’t buy it from the Apple store.

BUY: Wedding dresses
Brides-to-be should get their wedding dresses now. The holidays are a great time for getting engaged and the wedding industry has taken note. Many bridal shops get new wedding dresses this month, but before they can move in the new gowns they have to get rid of the old ones by slashing prices-- sometimes up to 70 percent!

BUY: Tools
 Many people don’t think about home improvement around winter time and because of this, many tools and hardware will actually go on sale. Get the man in your life a nice tool set for a fraction of the original pricing now. That’s just one less thing to cross off your Christmas list.

BUY: Kitchen appliances and cookware
If you like hosting holiday parties, kitchen appliances and cookware will go on sale this month. Black Friday will have an abundance of sales on cookware from Keurigs, to juicers, to Crock Pots. Bigger appliances like refrigerators, washers and dryers will also be on sale.

DON'T BUY:  Plane tickets
Something to be weary about if you're wanting to save money is plane tickets. If you haven’t booked your flights home for the holidays yet, you’re more than likely out of luck. A good rule of thumb for traveling, according to CheapAir, is to book flights 1 - 4 months out...except for holiday travel.

If you didn’t book your flight home for Thanksgiving or Christmas at the beginning of this year, you might have to pay a lot more for it now.
