Frugalista Black Friday

**Be ready to link your post with the Frugalista Friday button and share your best Black Friday deal next week!!**

This video has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but its hilarious


One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving Day is sitting around the dining room table after the food has been cleared, the pants button popped, and the slobber wiped from my face and looking through the Black Friday ads and creating a "game plan."

Let's be honest, it is exactly a "game plan."  Black Friday shopping is serious bidnass.  You've got to prepare mentally, physically, and emotionally for this event.  Don't laugh, I'm for reals!

Now, I have to admit I never go out there dying to get something and come home angry if I can't find it.  Although I don't have kids yet so that could very possibly will definitely change.  I mean, if my kid wants the Tickle Me Elmo, you can bet I'll be the cray cray mom holding down fort all hours of the night and climbing to the top of the toy pile to get it.

I've never been one to do some scoping out of Black Friday deal prior to Thanksgiving Day ads, but now that I have a smartphone and all its almost irresistible.  I downloaded the app, BFAds, and I've been scoping out some of the exciting sales that are coming this year.  If you don't have a smartphone you can always check out The Black Friday.com.
There are a few places that I'm super excited about.  Almost every year Target has something on my list for a lesser price or a gift card with purchase.  Old Navy always has great deals on staple items.  KMart and Kohls usually have something I need.  I also love going to the outlets each year.  My first stop is usually Ralph Lauren because they run a deal: an extra 30% off your purchase for the first 2 hours they are open Thanksgiving night.

This year I don't have my heart set on anything in particular yet because I'm having a hard time making my Christmas list.  Hubby isn't really sure what he wants and I'm waiting to scope out the ads to see if the item I want to get my parents is a special deal anywhere.

I will definitely hit up the Tanger Outlets in Mebane again.  I will stop and stock up on leggings and basics at Old Navy (for me of course).  After that, I'm really not sure.  Rest assured, after looking at the fliers at the dinner table, there will surely be a list of things that I "need" to add to my list.

What are you searching for this Black Friday?  Are there any special deals or sales that you are tackling like a boss?

  2. I am pretty bad at the Black Friday stuff – I get super stressed out by the crowds! So I tend to hide behind my computer and take advantage of online deals :)
