Considering I basically shop online all day for a living, it should come as no surprise that I am rather good at scoping out incredible sale finds. Digging through endless pages of discounted products is not fun for anyone, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday right around the corner, the volume of sales is only growing larger by the second. To ensure you have the most pleasurable sale shopping experience this year, I went through the best sales of the season to bring you the 29 buys you absolutely don't want to skip this week and weekend. 

Additionally, there are a couple of things I want to advise you not to purchase during this sale period. A few years ago, we received some insider knowledge from a retail expert at BlackFriday.com on exactly what to not buy during these seasonal sales. The first thing on the list was jewelry. There are more discounts on jewelry post–Valentine's Day, so if you can avoid the category altogether, you'll be making a wise decision. The second is winter coats. I know I, for one, am always extremely tempted to stock up on all the stunning outerwear the season has to offer, but experts state that you will get better details once the winter season has ended, so once again, hold off if you can. 

You're welcome for those secret Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale shopping tips, but our goal was not to get you to hold off on shopping; it was actually to encourage you to stock up on all the incredible finds that we are advising you to buy ASAP. So go on and fill your carts. You deserve it.
