You might be taking a shopping break until Black Friday & Cyber Monday, but I would rethink that plan. 

While Black Friday & Cyber Monday are usually the official kickoff of the holiday shopping season, this year’s season really began last month with Amazon Prime Day. As such, everything is a bit topsy turvy and stores are rolling outs sales throughout the month.

The categories where you’ll find the best deals right now are kitchen essentials, fall apparel, and phones/phone accessories. For everything else, the deals could be better over Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
