5 Things I Buy on Black Friday Every Year

It’s one of those days – some people love it and some people loathe it.  Black Friday.  While I’m not necessarily going to camp out in front of Best Buy in sub-zero temperatures, there are a few things that I make sure to get a deal on every year, so today I’m going to share with you the 5 things I buy on Black Friday every year!

A bonus is that guests rave about staying at our house because of our comfy bedding!)

My next favorite items to be on the lookout for are Big Ticket Items that are on a major sale – camera lenses, kitchen appliances etc.  These type of items are worth the trip our amongst the crowds.  You can save upwards of $100 if you find the right sale, so Black Friday is a perfect day to buy these things. I’ve found that Macy’s has awesome prices on KitchenAid stand mixers on black Friday.

On Thanksgiving, after everyone is full of delicious food, it’s kind of become a silly tradition that a group of us sort through all of the piles of Black Friday ads.  Some of it is for pure entertainment, but some of it is serious bargain hunting!

Before I send you on your way, I’ll leave you with my best Black Friday tip:  Don’t use Black Friday as a day to purchase Christmas Gifts.  There are typically restrictions on sale items that make it difficult for someone to return.  Instead, think of those everyday things that you can save big bucks on!

What do you like to buy on Black Friday?  Or would you much prefer to stay in your house and hide from all of the crowds!?
