The Best Black Friday Sales + A Money-Saving Reminder

Whether you’re heading out early in the morning, or planning to shop from your home, I’ve rounded up some of my personal favorite Black Friday sales–some of which are starting early. You can scroll to the bottom of this post to read more and, for even more money-saving tips, this post is packed full of great tips and tricks for online shopping!Personally, I’ve never been a big Black Friday shopper. In fact, for many years, I worked in a small retail boutique where Black Friday was one of our biggest holiday shopping days. At that time, I loved working the day after Thanksgiving, because it was so much fun being so busy throughout the day. The holiday displays and bustling shoppers always got me so excited for the season, and helping them to find special gifts made it even more enjoyable.

Today, though, I’m more than happy to spend the day away from the crowds, visiting with the family and friends whom I don’t often see. I think it’s so, so important to focus on the moments and not the things during these holiday weekends. I hope you all have some time to do the same!
