Hang in there. Wait patiently. Sit tight. Breathe deeply. Practice restraint. Say no—to the temptation of sales, discounts, and deals happening across retailers right now. Black Friday and Cyber Monday aren't here quite yet, but they're close.

Oh please, who are you kidding? If you really want to be thrifty and wait until Thanksgiving weekend, we wish you the best of luck getting your gifts on time for the holidays—if at all—when cargo ship ports and warehouses are already log jammed. And there is no guarantee that prices will get better as Black Friday approaches.

We earnestly recommend you shop now if you spot something you like at a great price. As it happens, retailers all around are already lining up daily deals, fall sales, and time-sensitive discounts on all the tech, home décor, kitchenware, furniture, and fashion you might be eyeing. In fact, some products—or their whopping price reductions—will probably already be gone by the time you read this. That sick bomber jacket you’ve been saving for? Gone. That robot vacuum cleaner you need? It’s back above half a grand. And that mattress you could tolerate being a little expensive? Now it costs even more.

But enough scaremongering. There are still a few holiday-adjacent occasions leading up to Thanksgiving: Halloween might be a great time for dropping big bucks on an outfit, and Veterans Day can become a gifting expedition for the family. Hell, let’s make Daylight Saving a holiday, too, and celebrate sleeping with some bedding essentials. In other words, there are enough sales events happening between now and Black Friday to make the online scouring worthwhile. To get started, consult this guide on the best pre-Black Friday deals, which we'll continue to update in the coming weeks.
