    Great list. I definitely agree with the calendars. In fact, I usually wait to get calendars during that same year. I’ve found that a lot of retailers are practically giving away calendars when purchased during that year. In fact, I’ve gotten a couple free calendars this way from Staples.

    You really have to pay attention all year to what things cost so that you know when you see a good markdown. The main reason I can see to shop early in the Christmas season is for better selection, not prices. Most things are not the cheapest Thanksgiving-Christmas Eve.
