STOP: Don't Buy This Stuff On Black Friday

Some deals are great. Others, not so much. There are some things worth standing in line for today. Others can wait till closer to Christmas or even in January.

Here's the top five items to skip today: 

1. Winter gear

Need gloves, hats, coats and boots? Wear the old stuff till January. There are deeper discounts during clearance sales in January. 

2. Designer clothing

Crazy for Gucci, Prada and other designer labels? Visit the outlet malls to get your fix.  According to DealNews, high-end clothiers don't really offer great "sales."

3. Latest Amazon Fire tablets

Amazon's older Fire tablets can be a good bargain, there won't be great discounts on the newest Fire products. according to DealNews. Last year, DealNews saw only two discounts on the then-new Kindle Fire HDX.

4. High-end laptops

"High-performance machines that boast a powerful CPU like Intel's Core i7 models actually see better prices during the summer back-to-school sales," DealNews' features writer Marcy Bonebright states.

July and September can offer deals that are 9 percent cheaper (about $50 on average) than even November's best deals, DealNews states.

5. Tools

Cheap household hand tools will have some good deals but last year there were 16 percent more tool offers in December than November.
