Ok, Shop-a-holics — Ready? Set? Go!

The biggest day in shopping is nearly here (think Canada’s Black Friday). We're always two steps ahead so we’ve created a list of must-know Boxing Day sales to give you a jump-start on your hunt for the best bargains. We've also come up with a list of shopping survival tips from SHOP.ca (you’re going to need more than just cash or credit to ensure your shopping spree unfolds hitch-free). Arm yourselves with their advice and you’ll be on your way to having a successful Boxing Day experience!

-- Make a list (and stick to it!). Shopping can be overwhelming. Reduce stress and cut time by jotting down items you're looking for. Make a plan and stick to it as close as possible; that way, you can stay on schedule and budget.
-- Shop in your pajamas (don't mind if we do!). Dozens of stores offer great online sales for Boxing Day. As an added bonus, you won't have long lines to wait in.
-- Look for free Shipping and returns. Refund and exchange policies vary from place to place, so read the fine print.
-- Buy extra host/hostess gifts. The holiday season also means parties — and lots of them! With a packed calendar, it’s easy to get busy and forget to pick up a little something for the party host with the most (especially at New Year's). When shopping, make sure to buy a few additional host or hostess gifts to keep on hand.
-- Have fun! Shopping shouldn't be a drag. Check out your favourite stores with your best pals or family. Stay hydrated and keep that energy going with a couple of snacks.

Now to the sales! 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.
