Black Friday

Thank Goodness it’s (Almost) Black Friday!

Tomorrow (and for some stores, tonight) will ring in the start of another joyous holiday shopping season. You know what that means.. BLACK FRIDAY! (everyone’s favorite unofficial holiday)

After stuffing your belly with turkey and mashers, join hundreds of bargain-crazed shoppers on the hunt for this season’s best deals. But, make sure you’re informed on what each store is offering and what time they open before you hit the road for some post-pumpkin pie shopping!

Check out some of the fantastic sales going on:

If you don’t get the chance to make it to the Black Friday sales this year, don’t forget about CYBER MONDAY– the biggest online shopping day of the year! Check out awesome sites like RetailMeNot that offer exclusive online deals.. and even free shipping!

 

Happy Gifting!

TGI TIPS: Save Time, Do As Much Holiday Shopping As You Can Online

·Take Wrapping and Delivery Off Your To-Do List For out-of-town family and friends, order from online retailers that will wrap and send gifts directly to their homes.

· Don’t Miss Out On Cyber Monday- This is the one day you MUST dedicate to online shopping.  Stock up on big-ticket items, toys, bulk gifts and electronics on this huge day for online savings.

· Buy in Bulk- Start the habit of having “signature go-to gifts”. It saves you time and you end up having your own “style” of gift-giving. One year stock up on cool handmade coasters and rare brands of beer, or bling business card cases and Voluspa candles.
