The holiday toy craze has already started.  People are scouring the internet for the “must have” toys of 2018 or their holiday season is ruined!  That’s what it’s all about, right? (insert eye roll emoji here).

Here are some tips from a Psychology Today article about shopping smart and saving cash.  First, the best time to buy a toy on e-bay is during the month of October, the first week of November, or after December 15th.  The worst time to buy is the week before Thanksgiving.  Second, avoid store-exclusives of the toy you are looking to buy.  If you are part of a bidding auction site, look for free shipping or low shipping charges.  For more e-bay holiday shopping tips, click here.
