If the thought of heading to brick-and-mortar stores this weekend makes you queasy, try eBay or Amazon for amazing discounts.

Keep in mind, some of the eBay vendors sell refurbished items, so you want to be sure and check the listing if you want something brand new in the box. To give you an idea of how good the sales are, you can get a brand-new KitchenAid 5 Quart Artisan Stand Mixer with a 1-year warranty for $219. That's a savings of 42 percent (for those of you keeping track)!
