Black Friday and Cyber Monday have past, but there are still plenty of bargains you can pick up in the month of December.
Computers – Buy an older model before the new ones are released. Check out tech blogs and manufacturers web sites to stay on top of release dates
Seasonal Produce - Stick to locally grown produce
Airline Tickets – Planning a spring get away, shop for rates early in the week booking flights that depart in the middle of the week or on a Saturday. Sign up to receive e-mail alerts for fares in your price range (Kayak.com)
Champagne – Look for specials through the month of December and before Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Chocolate & Candy – The days after a big holiday is a excellant time to get deals of chocolate and candy. Check local supermarkets, mass retailers and pharmacies and compare prices. Look for the higher end chocolate to have the better deal . Your sweet tooth will thank you in the new year.

Here is a great holiday punch from Martha Stewart. We love using Prosecco instead of the champagne – either way, hope you give it a try – Cheers!!
1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
1 cup pear nectar
1/4 cup orange-flavor liqueur
1 bottle (750ml) Champagne
In a large pitcher, combine the juice, nectar and liqueur. Slowly add Champagne. Serve over ice.
I remember the day when me and Merci each bought a punch bowl set (pretty sure the set was $9.99 ) from Woolworths’ about 30 years ago and we felt so grown up and sophisticated. Now we talk about that day, everytime we have a get together and use it – happy days!
