I don't really go out on Black Friday, but we always get our Magic House membership and Hanna Anderson pajamas online!

We are eyeing a couple Christmas tree deals. I also need to pick up some video games for my nephews and pink clothing for my nieces.
As always though I refuse to attempt the crowds and I'll try to do as much as possible online.

Yes! We desperately need a new Christmas tree!

I always buy my bras on Black Friday. Also getting new sonicare toothbrush from kohls. So exciting ;)

Walmart has a giant box of Legos for $20 I want to try and get. I do most of my shopping online. I'm working Black Friday this year at Kohls, but I don't go in until 5:00 pm, so I don't know if it will be too crazy at that point.

Where are you looking at for the tree? We could use a new one this year too.

We're getting an Instant Pot. :roll:

Otherwise, I don't know! I need to finalize our shopping list and start scoping out the deals. :)

My list is pretty boring this year which may be a good thing. I have a few DVDs on my list, there's a Shopkins set at Walmart that I know J would love, and will be scoping out the purse deals at Macys. I am sure I will place an Old Navy online order as I seem to do that every year.

Freshly picked is having a week-long Black Friday sale...so I’m probably gonna have to get some overpriced baby moccasins. My newest thing is this bunny lamp from West Elm that I’m obsessed with - I’m gonna need a Black Friday deal for that. I’ve got a few Christmas gifts I’m going to check out On Black Friday if there’s a deal. I really want a roomba buttttt I don’t think that’s going to happen. My parents and brother are in town so al my BF shopping will be online.

Walmart had the best deal- a 7.5 foot pre lit with LED for $70ish. I just hope it's actually good quality. If that one doesn't work out lowes also has a 7.5 foot pre lit (but not led) for less than $100.

Usually target has a great deal after thanksgiving, but this year it's only a $25 discount. :sad11:

If you get one, go with a neato!!! I bought a roomba and returned it after I watched it a few times. It has no pattern to how it cleans which means it was missing huge chunks of rooms (like 3/4's of a room!) or skipping it altogether. And our house isn't huge but it couldn't do it all in one battery charge, which means the rooms it doesn't get, just doesn't get done. The neato scans the room and breaks it up into sections. Then it will do the outside perimeter of the section it scanned, and then a back and forth pattern to get the inside of the perimeter. If it can't get the whole house on one battery charge, then it will go back, charge and start where it left off once charged. We got one right before Hanna started crawling because with our dog we could have cleaned the floors everyday, which we didn't have time for. I love that thing, it's been awesome!

Thanks! I can't speak to the pre lit one at Walmart but we decided last minute to get a fake tree several years ago. We went to Walmart (most places were already picked over) and bought an $80 tree. I felt like it was good quality, I loved the way it looked and it held up fairly well.

The one we have now is from Walmart and has lasted us over 10 years. It still looks decent, but we want a taller one to go with the vaulted ceilings in our new house.

Do these work on hardwood floors and pick up dog hair?

Yes! We use ours daily and it goes over our tile, hardwood and carpet fine. And that was the biggest reason we got it was because of the dog. I went with the model I did because it was supposed to be better for pet hair and allergens and because I could start it from my phone. It's actually disturbing what it picks up considering we run it daily.

The Botvac D5 Connected. You can get it at Bed Bath and Beyond with a coupon or they will price match Amazon, whichever is cheaper.

We were going to get a Christmas tree, but my in law's are moving and their new one won't fit in the house, so it worked out well for us! We were also hoping to score some deals on exterior lights--our new roof is substantially bigger than the old house, and the kids love it when we decorate outside, so we'd love to get some up soon. I do most of my Christmas shopping over the summer, so I really don't have a need to buy much now, and I'm kind of trying to avoid the temptation.

I'm looking at a few things on Amazon. A few DVDs, and browsing various departments. My heart's just not in it though, or the things I'm looking for have no good deals.

Where do you get your bras on BF? I never would've thought to look at those for deals.
