you guys. it's coming. the biggest shopping day of the year. and it's only 10 days away!!!
you know what i'm talking about. BLACK FRIDAY.
and instead of doing all the work yourself, making your head spin looking at every ad and every store and every deal, i'm just going to make it WAY easy on you. i've even hired a team of elves (not kidding!) for next week to help me cover everything. we will have toys, TVs, clothing, electronics, all your black friday wants and hopes and dreams! it's all going to be covered right here.
i have maps, plans, and top-secret black friday insider info from SEVERAL retailers that are totally under wraps but i can't wait to unveil here for you! i'll be taking THANKSGIVING DAY OFF to spend with my family (like everyone else should) but i'll be firing things up later that night HERE on the blog. like way after the turkey is all eaten and the dishes are done and kiddos are in bed. and then the next day, BLACK FRIDAY, it's on. like donkey kong.
and if you want to go stand out in the cold, i'll have a map of where to get the best deal. it's coming TUESDAY 11/25 so watch for that. but if you want to shop black friday MY way, in your jammies, at home, where it's nice and warm, i'll have all the best deals right at your fingertips!
you're not gonna miss out on anything by staying home and shopping online, except maybe a human stampede. all the same deals are offered online these days, and some are even BETTER than the “loss-leaders” offered in-store. (loss leaders are a few majorly marked down items that retailers use to get you into their store to ultimately buy more!).
also, CYBER MONDAY is nowadays as big or BIGGER than black friday. you better believe i'll be covering all the goods on cyber monday too! with my elves. and lots of diet coke.
with cyber monday, black friday, and lots of pre-black friday deals coming up, don't be married to black friday! a deal might pop up in the next week on JUST what you want, and it may not repeat on BF. so don't be afraid to jump on something that looks like a killer deal, here or elsewhere.
have a tip for me? find something amazing? email me!! corrine(at)mintarrow.com. i LOVE when readers help me out!
don't want to miss a thing? here are a few tips to get you warmed up for the big day:
