If you’re anything like me; you’ve probably found yourself buying something that you didn’t really need, maybe even something you didn’t even want until you saw it, simply because the deal was too good to pass up. What about the other things though? What about the things you did want or need but didn’t buy, or the things you bought simply because you needed them right now?
Being involved with a site like FatWallet, it’s easy to focus on that first group of really amazing deals and lose sight of the fact that there is a second group of things that people will need to buy no matter what. With the holiday shopping season approaching, it’s probably safe to say that there will be a lot of purchasing from this second group going on.
After all… How were you to know that little Johnny would want the G.I. Joe with the Kung-Fu Grip and Enhanced Interrogation Techniques, and that young Suzy would have her heart set on the My Little Pony Glittery Glue Factory? Even if you did know these things, you probably haven’t spent all year looking for a good deal, because it’s no good stashing them in the freezer next to the hot dogs and pizza rolls only to have them discovered and your surprise ruined.
With this in mind, and armed with the knowledge that both crying children and adults spending too much money make us completely insane, we have decided to put together a short list of things we believe people will want to buy no matter what during the holidays. These items, including iPod Touch 8GB, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, and digital cameras have all been among the most searched for items during the past two consecutive holiday seasons and all the way through to today. Since stores are having a hard time keeping the Xbox 360 Kinect in stock, were going to go ahead and add this to the list of hot items too.
We’ll make post for each item on the in a special section of our Expert Picks Christmas section, and then update each deal as often as we can with the best current prices we can find throughout the holiday season. Digital cameras are a little tricky since there are so many models to choose from, so we asked our Magic 8-Ball and came up with a list of five models that we believe are destined for popularity. When asked whether we will be tracking the Nikon D90 , Nikon D3100 , and Samsung TL205 during the holidays, Magic 8-Ball indicates that, “Signs point to yes.”
Be sure to check our Expert Picks regularly for the lowest recent prices on iPod Touch 8GB , Nintendo Wii , Xbox 360 , Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor, PlayStation 3, and digital cameras through the holiday season.
