I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
This planning ahead for Black Friday post on Day by Day in Our World is a Fashionista Event. I was provided a promotional item by Coupons.com to inform you of their crazy insane Black Friday Sales, their top 10 gifts giveaway and our $500 giveaway.
I have to confess that I am a Black Friday shopper. I’m not one of those individuals who is waiting in line for hours to get one of the super loss leader items. Instead, I am one who combs through the sale circulars and marks down what I’d like to get. Sometimes I get what is on my list and sometimes I don’t. This year, I’m planning ahead for Black Friday with Coupons.com
Planning Ahead for Black Friday ~ Check Out the Sales
I’ve already started planning my method of attack as several of the ‘usual’ shopping haunts are already publishing their Black Friday circulars online. That does NOT mean I won’t get the newspaper that day and comb through every ad. But, I do like having a heads up for which stores I’m most likely to shop.
Coupons.com has a great Black Friday Sales page up which is a mixture of coupons that you can use at retailers and some links (e.g. Best Buy and Walmart) for the retailer’s Black Friday ad. I’m all for maximizing my budget and am glad Coupons.com is there with discounts to share.
We’ve had some major purchases in our house already this Fall, so Christmas shopping will be a bit lighter this year. However, I thought it might be fun to share a little collage of things that may make an appearance under the tree. The Skhoop Alaskan Down Long skirt on the left is just like the one that was lost/stolen this week. Hubby’s already told me to put it on my wish list as he knows how cold I get during the long Alaskan winter. The movies are ones the boys are wanting…I’m just not saying if I already have them stashed in the house.
