The holiday shopping season is about to be in full swing, are you ready? I personally am not a big Black Friday shopper, although I’ve got my eye on a couple good deals this year. You won’t find me lining up at the stores at the crack of dawn, though!
Every year I tell myself I’m just going to do all my Christmas shopping online, but it never fails I have to run out for a few last-minute gifts. I usually get at least 50% of my Christmas shopping done online, though. I missed Cyber Monday last year, but maybe I’ll have a chance to check out some of the special sales this year.
If you’re interested in shopping the sales on Black Friday, be sure and check out this site for a great list of all the ads before they hit the newspaper, so you can prepare your shopping route in advance!Either way you shop, there are great opportunities on savings on much more than just Christmas gifts.
For instance, JCPenney will be offering their Classic Bath Towel for $2.99, which is a dollar cheaper than their current sale price of $3.98 (regular price of $7.99). However, it’s easy to get caught up the excitement of a sale, so make sure you’re getting a good deal that’s worth the trip before you buy.
