It seems as though every year the holiday shopping period starts earlier and earlier. Just last weekend I noticed two homes in my community putting up holiday decorations and Christmas Trees already. You normally start seeing holiday decorations going up during the Thanksgiving weekend. Even some of the large retailers are starting their holiday advertising early. Walmart started advertising a $398 PC for sale two weeks before Black Friday (The day after Thanksgiving). According to some news stories retail sales in October were lower than expected. That is causing the large retailers to not wait until Black Friday to kick off there holiday sales specials. This is good news for you and me. So before you miss that next great deal I thought I would pull together and share some sites that I used to start my holiday shopping.
