Best Bargains For November

by Wanda on November 7, 2017

It’s always a good time for shopping, and always a good time for getting a great deal! The trick is knowing when you’ll find the best prices on specific items, so here’s a rundown on where the bargains are for November:

1. Wedding dresses.

If you’re planning a wedding in the next few months, now’s the time to shop for a dress. Stores need to make room for new stock and put current stock on sale, so you can get good deals on wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses.

2. Tools.

We’re in a slow home improvement season, so stores want to give people a reason to go out and buy new tools. A great sale is a pretty good reason!

3. Home improvement services.

Again, the slow season works to your advantage, so schedule painting, carpeting, home renovations for this month and save some money.

4. Candy.

Leftover Halloween candy has to move out of the store to make room for Christmas candy. The candy is the same- it’s only the packaging that changes, so stock up on candy after Halloween.

5. Costumes.

Costumes will also go on sale after Halloween, so shop for next year’s costumes. Can’t plan that far ahead? Buy up some costumes on sale anyway for your kids to use for dress-up.

6. Baking supplies.

Baking supplies go on sale to get ready for the holiday season.

7. Plastic wrap, storage containers, aluminum foil.

Food storage items will also go on sale to get ready for all the holiday cooking and baking that’s about to happen.

8. Turkeys.

The abundant stock of turkeys this time of year allows stores to put them on sale, so you can score some savings. And who said turkey’s just for Thanksgiving? Buy and extra turkey to save in the freezer for another dinner party during the year.

9. Black Friday.

A blog about saving money in November would be incomplete without mention of Black Friday savings! Wait until the end of the month for super deals on TVs, appliances, computers, and electronics.

10. Veterans Day.

The savings aren’t as big as they’ll be on Black Friday, but you can get some good deals on lots of merchandise at Veterans Day sales.

Incredible Benefits of Broccoli

I’m aware that broccoli is not such an interesting subject so I thought really hard and Googled a lot to help me come up with something funny and attention grabbing to start off this post. Because I really want people to read it! I personally love broccoli and I know lots of people who love it, too, but I also know lots of people who don’t care for it. I don’t get them at all! And I’m really happy that I like broccoli and eat it all the time because it’s very, very good for you. Which is why I wanted to get lots of people to read this- okay, also because of my ego- but really, I want everyone to know about the incredible health benefits of broccoli. It’s inexpensive, easy to prepare, and good for you. What more could you ask from a vegetable? Here’s what you should know about the health benefits of broccoli:

1. It’s an immune system booster

Broccoli is full of antioxidants, which are crucial for a strong immune system. Broccoli is high in vitamin C, which you need lots of during cold and flu season. In fact, one cup of broccoli has as much vitamin C as one orange.

2. It can prevent cancer

3. It’s good for your skin

The vitamins and minerals in broccoli give you healthy, glowing skin.

4. It’s great for eye health

Broccoli contains nutrients that prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. Those nutrients may also help repair damage caused by constant exposure to our screens.

5. It’s good for your bones

The high content of calcium and vitamin K is important for healthy bones and preventing osteoporosis.

6. It’s important for heart health

The anti-inflammatory properties in broccoli, as well as its high fiber content help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.

7. It’s great for digestive health

Since broccoli is high in fiber it helps your digestion running smoothly.

8. It’s great for detox

The fiber in broccoli helps eliminate toxins through the digestive tract, but there are elements in broccoli that help the whole body detox, even at the genetic level.

9. It’s a great diet food

If you’re watching your weight, eating broccoli will help keep your blood sugar steady, which should prevent cravings and overeating. Broccoli even contains a significant amount of protein, which, along with the fiber will keep you feeling full and satisfied longer.

Pretty awesome, right? And I get that just knowing something is good for you isn’t always enough to get you to eat it. But maybe you’ve never had really good broccoli, so you don’t know yet how much you love it! Did you ever try roasting it? Cut broccoli into florets and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast at 400° for about 20 minutes and eat it up!
