It's one day to T-Day....
which also means 2 days til Black Friday!!
I'm assuming you will all at least be checking out the newspaper for all the great deals (even if you don't want to fight the early morning crowds!) but if you don't want to wait, you can view many retailers' ads online.
Here's a few Black Friday sites:
Many retailers such as Target, and Walmart, have already posted their ads on their site so check those out first!
Another great resource is http://www.slickdeals.net/ - not only does this site list the "hot deals of the day" (yesterday they posted a link to get the Hardbound Twilight Series for $35!) but have additional resources (including message boards) for shopping on Black Friday. There's even a spreadsheet that is sorted by store, price, product etc. To download it, click here.
Some experts saying this is THE year to go shopping on Friday since so many stores are desperate to get people in the doors. I haven't really seen anything that's jumping out at me yet, but that's probably because most of the great deals seem to be on electronics... which is no where on my list. Well, Josh keeps begging for a GPS for his snowmobile... so if you see a good deal on one of those... let me know! :-)
A Few Last Tips:
*Don't forget that many stores also have Black Friday deals online, so if you can't (or don't want) to get out and fight the crowds - wake up early and check out the sites to see what deals are available. For more info click here.
*If you're brave enough to fight the crowds in Walmart, there is one nice plus - most are open 24 hours which means you don't have to wait outside in the cold! (Expect there to be large lines around the popular crates!)
*Stores like Linens N Things are closing and it looks like the have some extra good deals going on! (Just remember - no returns!)
*Divide and conquer! Take a friend and split up your lists so you get to the good deals before they're all gone!
