Black Friday 2015 Haul!

Happy Cyber Monday everyone! After a whirlwind holiday weekend, I'm so excited to share all of my awesome Black Friday finds with you, as well as some great Cyber Monday deals I'm loving in case you missed out on Friday's craziness.

We didn't have Thanksgiving dinner until 6:30pm, so obviously we didn't hit any of the big doorbuster sales. I'm okay with that though, considering we came away with quite a lot of loot by shopping online and post-peak hours. No, we didn't get a fancy new TV (though we would've liked one!), but that's okay. We have a lot of baby stuff to stock up on so maybe a TV can be next year's Christmas gift ;)

I'll break the deals down by store:



Carter's was my biggest haul...and possibly my biggest savings! For Black Friday, they offered 60% off the entire site + I had a coupon for 20% off any purchase of $40 or more. I ended up with nearly 80% off my purchase, plus free shipping!

1.) Mommy's Little Genius Take-Me-Home Set (reg. $26, my price $8.32) // While I never use the hats in these sets, the socks are always super tiny and stay on little newborn feet so well! I love that these sets can snap into pants or as a gown and that they come with a bib. This one is a favorite because Preston wears "nerdy" glasses ;)

2.) 2-Pack Swaddle Blankets (reg. $24, my price $7.68) // Carter's Swaddle Blankets are the very best out there. Perfect for tummy time, tossing over the car seat, covering up or even as a makeshift nursing cover. They're not too thick or too thin (though I must note, my mom always bought these for my siblings and they have gotten thinner over the years. What's with that Carter's?) so they'll be perfect for my little April baby. These have the cutest mustache and striped prints.

3.) Coolest Sister Ever Tee (reg. $14, my price $4.99) // How could I not? It's so hard to find Lucy sister shirts that don't say "little sister" in her size! Them being so close together makes it hard to find cute big sister tee's, but I've found a few gems here and there and this cheapie was just perfect for the cool months ahead.

4.) Shark Print Take-Me-Home Set (reg. $26, my price $10.40) // Another one of Carter's awesome sets. You get all you need in one outfit, pre-packaged and ready to go. Great gift idea for mommies-to-be! This one has a silly hat that will probably never come out of the drawer, but the sleeper and onesie are just too cute to pass up.

5.) 2-Pack Printed Jumpsuits (reg. $24, my price $7.68) // Another favorite of mine. Lucy had a set of their jumpsuits and I loved them during the spring! They're footless so you can opt for socks if necessary and the material isn't too thick which, again, is great for my little Spring baby. These have the same mustache/stripe prints as the blankets above.

6.) Handsome Like Daddy Set (reg. $24, my price $7.68) // Think Parker will have enough navy blue? Haha. I can't control myself. I just love this phrase on all of their outfits so I couldn't pass up this adorable set. The cardigan can be removed if he gets too warm which is wonderful, though newborns need all the warmth they can get, so it may just stay on. I like having options though!

Total before deals: $138 // Total with 60% off Black Friday + 20% off coupon: $46.75


I only scored two things at Gymboree this time, but Lucy just doesn't really need anything and most of the items in Parker's size are winter and I really don't want to save them that long when he will need spring clothes right away. I did end up finding this adorable raglan tee (no longer available online) which reminds us so much of Preston's style and this sweet little Hedgehog Sleeper. I think I paid around $9 total for both with the use of a 20% off coupon on top of the additional 50% off clearance. Not a bad deal for Gymboree!


Another mini-haul, if you can even call it a haul at all, but a good one nonetheless. I tried to get this sleeper at Carter's with my other goodies but it was out of stock in all the tiny sizes. I happened to find it at Kohl's (can't find it online anywhere) as we were browsing and with only one left in size Newborn! I snagged it right away of course! I also grabbed this super cute summer dress for me for a whopping $4 in the clearance section. It will be great for nursing this summer with the v-neckline, plus it's swing-style cut should be very forgiving on my postpartum tummy. Total here was around $10 with a 15% off coupon.


Our Target haul is much larger than this, but I figured I'd save the other half for later since it's all Christmas decor! We used the Saturday deal; $50 a Holiday Shop purchase of $100 or more. It saved us big time on items we were already planning on purchasing! Back to Black Friday goodies...We mostly bought movies! Haha. There were a few Christmas gifts purchased that I can't share on here, but we also snagged A Christmas Story (my favorite!), Mad Men Season 7 Part 2 (binge watched in 2 days...sinking into a small depression over here), and Seasons 4 & 5 of Downton Abbey for my Grandma Jo (she has all the other seasons). They were $6, $8, and $10 a piece respectively. A pretty good deal I think, especially for those TV seasons!


Walmart wasn't much of a haul either, but we did grab a couple of movies, including Anchorman 2 ($1.96) and Jurassic Park ($3.96). Can you believe I've never seen any Jurassic movies?! I also snagged one of the last few of these mixing bowl sets I shared last week online and had them shipped to the store for free. It was a great deal for all the pieces I got and they seem like a nice quality, too. We love BHG products at Walmart and you can't beat the price. Plus every BHG item over $20 comes with a free 1 year subscription to the magazine. Win-win!


The only other Black Friday deal we took advantage of was this LeapFrog Shapes & Sharing Picnic Basket for 50% off at Babies R' Us. We were registering for Parker and decided to grab it as a Christmas gift for Lucy.

On to Cyber Monday! Here are some of the best deals I'm hoping to take advantage of:

Target.com // use code CYBER15 for 15% sitewide! This is a huge deal because you can use it on almost anything and that never happens!

Walmart.com // There are some great deals on electronics today, as well as some big savings on things like pressure cookers, trampolines, kids toys, vacuums and more. Basically gift-giving central.

Carters.com // save 50% off the entire store plus an extra 25% off when you spend $40 or more with code CYBERNOW. A little better than the usual 20% off and lots of new arrivals on the site!

pinkblushmaternity.com // Preggo ladies take note! Pink Blush Maternity has the cutest, trendiest maternity clothes out there and for great prices...and the whole site is 50% OFF with code CYBERMONDAY! Not pregnant? No worries! They have the same adorable styles and prices on their regular women's site as well! They even offer plus sizes in both regular and maternity lines!

What deals did you score on Black Friday? Are you taking hold of the Cyber Monday savings, too?
