Best Days to Shop before Christmas

This week is the best time to shop

According to the research completed by several retail sites, the time between December 15th and 18th are the best for holiday deals.

What I Love Just As Much As Travel and Gadgets?

Saving money on the travel gadgets

There are some great deals still to be found after the BlackFriday/Cyber Monday craze. While during those days most of the retailers raked up great sales with some discounts, they continue to offer deep discounts through the holiday season. Some of these discounts are even better and are on better gadgets.

Top Holiday Deals
Year-End Deals

Gadgets worth their price
Sometimes going against the general rule is a good thing. Especially with some travel gadgets. These devices will save you money in the long run even if they cost a bit more upfront.

Digital camera - of course, you want the one that takes great shots. Since you are traveling, you would also want one that can withstand a few bumps, able to multitask, and would not weigh you down. We like Panasonic Lumix and Canon PowerShot SX series. For more tips see this article Buying a Digital Camera for Travel .

Digital Luggage Scale- these compact gadgets will save you quite a bit of hassle and money when flying by making sure you avoid paying overweight luggage fees.

The Electronics Holiday Gift Guide

Gadgets that save you money
Camelbak All Clear Purifier Bottle
This travel accessory will prevent you from spending a lot of money on buying multiple water bottles. It also saves the environment.

Rechargeable Battery Charger
Use fewer batteries and therefore buy fewer batteries. This charger can juice up most rechargeable batteries, so you only need to bring one and a couple of batteries saving space in your luggage as well.

A Hybrid Car
A pricier tag at the start though can pay for itself after one year of ownership and fill-ups. Of course, that is dependent on the driving style

- When using overseas try to avoid using US-based phones and services. Best to have unlocked phone that you can set up with international service and/or get a pre-paid SIM card on location to save on calls.
- New phones are coming out every few months. However, latest smartphones from a year or so ago are still great and have the same functions that the new shiny ones. Even though they might not be as shiny, when traveling, a slightly older smartphone can be a great tool without having to shell out the additional dough.
Things You No Longer Need Because of Smartphones

Secure your gadgets
Keeping your gadgets is one good way to save on replacement cost. A great way to do so is to label all of the gadgets you take with you. Either by simply placing some masking tape and writing your info, doing some custom labels, or applying smart labels, you can safeguard your devices and valuables and make sure their return to if something does happen is a lot easier. Also tracking gadgets such as the ZOMM Wireless Leash or similar is a great idea. They make sure that you do not leave your travel gadgets behind and keep and your money with you.

Sometimes cheap is not the best choice
If it is too good to be true, it is. I have tested this saying a few too many times. And it is still true.

Since when is the turkey dinner a quick snack and gateway to shopping?! Last couple of years brick and mortar stores started their sales not at midnight, which was nutty enough, but at 5-6pm on Thanksgiving day.

Will you be shopping on Black Friday this year? Comment below

"The condensed time between Thanksgiving and Christmas means that consumers will feel more pressure to shop for the same list in less time," said Steve Arthur, head of industry for retail at Google.
This holiday season save money, time, and sanity by shopping for gifts online. There are a lot more choices and opportunities this year than any previous shopping season. And there will be a lot more sales and offers online. Which would help you avoid one of these:

I have done my share of getting up at 4am in the morning and heading out to the stores. We usually do not go for the big ticket items, but in previous years we did score great deals on gadgets such as my Garmin GPS, paper shredder that we go for $6, a photo printer, and some others. Though this has become too nutty with stores outdoing each other in terms of sales start time. And based on last year, most of the deals will be also available via online marketplace.

Here are some of our favorite online deals:
