If you’re not excited, you should be.

The biggest day in shopping is just around the corner (think Canada’s Black Friday). To give you a head start on your hunt for the best bargains, we’ve created a list of must-know Boxing Day steals. We've also come up with a list of shopping survival tips (you’re going to need more than just cash or credit to ensure your shopping spree unfolds hitch-free).

We chatted with two of the loveliest and fashionable Canadians, Jan Gandhi and Nancy Sahota over at The Peacock Parade. Arm yourselves with their advice and you’re sure to have an uber-satisfying Boxing Day experience!

-- Set a budget and stick with it. And shop early to avoid the disappointment of sold-out items.
-- Have a list of your favourite websites and make sure you know when their sales start. Make sure you're one of the first people to log on when the sales start.
-- Call customer service if you have questions prior to the sales starting.
-- Know the ins and outs of your favourite websites so you don't miss out on any deals. Know websites' return and shipping policies so you can plan gifts or purchases for specific occasions.
-- Know your measurements so you can accurately determine your size when shopping online.

Keep an eye on the below slideshow as we'll be updating it on a daily basis. If you have a sale you'd like us to add, email us at canadastyle@huffingtonpost.com.
