I am surprisingly very excited about turkey day and “Black Friday”. Don’t worry I have no intention of actually shopping in stores the day after Thanksgiving, that would be pure madness! I am using a great online sale website that is designed specifically for just Black Friday.
In past years we have had a blast drinking wine after our yummy turkey dinner and wearing our PJ’s while scouring the web and buying all of our holiday gifts online. Personally I am able to shop around for the best prices online and I feel like I get the best deals that way.
We have a few big ticket items we are shopping around for. N really wants a 42 inch LCD TV and we have been looking at them for months. I am not totally pleased with the “holiday specials” on these though. It seems the retailers aren’t really discounting them at all and well we don’t have $1000 to spend on a TV right now.
N also wants a few big hardware store gifts, you know “man-ish gifts”. A lawnmower (preferably an electric one, not gas) and a wet dry shop vac. I am working hard over on gather.com to earn a home depot gift card for these things. Anything to save money and have a cheaper holiday is fine by me!
This is going to be our last holiday season as a twosome. It is crazy to think about. Next year we’ll have a child, we will have stared a family of our own… Everything is about to change and we are excited!
Do you have any big ticket items you are shopping around for this holiday? Any big items you would love to get?
