My Favorite Black Friday Deals | 2015

Happy Tuesday, ya'll! Who else is excited for some awesome Black Friday deals? I know my friends Tif and Della have some BF hunting experience up their sleeves, but I have never gone! I've always been afraid to, and I never know where to start.

I'm also on the fence about shopping on Thanksgiving day...as a former retail associate and manager, I can say that I hate leaving my family on a holiday to go cater to a bunch of crazy people who aren't even happy with some of the amazing deals they're getting out there! But as a bargain hunter and a mom always on the lookout for ways to save money, I totally understand the draw of some of these deals. I just wish stores would stop opening earlier and earlier! Why not get the great deals starting no earlier than midnight, like the good ol' days?

But, Black Friday is Black Friday and there is usually a deal for everyone, online and in stores. Whether you're willing to brave the crowds this year or are happier snuggled up with your laptop (hear, hear!), I'm sharing some of my favorite bargains for Black Friday 2015:


Trouble, Clue, & Sorry Board Games (reg. $12.99, on sale for $7.00 ea.) // Love game night as much as I do? Don't miss this great deal on some of your favorite classics! Want to skip the lines? Snag them now for under $10 a piece.

LeapFrog Shapes & Sharing Picnic Basket (reg. $24.99, on sale for $12.49) // I may have to grab this adorable picnic basket for Lucy. It would make a great Christmas gift for any little girl, especially at half off!

Fisher-Price Elephant Piano (reg. $29.99, on sale for $17.99) // This sweet toy would make an adorable gift for the toddler in your life. It's on my list for Lucy's first birthday this January, but I don't know if I can keep it hidden past Christmas. It's just too cute!

Lincoln Logs Set (reg. $49.99, on sale for $24.99) // Lincoln Logs have been a hit for so many years; I can't believe the price of them normally, but you can snag this popular set for half price this Friday! It looks like a great gift idea for my nephew!

Huggies Value Pack Diapers (reg. $42.99) & Huggies Natural Care Refill Wipes (reg. $15.99) // Receive $10 off with the purchase of both a value pack of Huggies diapers & Huggies wipes. While this might not seem like a crazy deal worth fighting crowds for, I'll be reaping the savings for sure! Why not save on something you already need, especially if you'll already be in the store! We'll be going through plenty of diapers and wipes in this household pretty soon, so I'll take all the bargains I can get!

**Not planning on running to a Toys R Us or Babies R Us this Friday? Just don't have one close by? Fear not! You can save big on many of these same Black Friday deals ahead of time if you're a Rewards R Us member! It's totally free and has a ton of great benefits, particularly for mamas who shop Babies R Us (check out their registry deal if you don't know what I'm talking about!)!**



VTech Sit-to-Stand Learn & Discover Table (reg. $34.96, on sale for $25) // This looks like a great educational toy for Lucy! She loves pulling herself to standing now, and I think she'd really enjoy poking around on this. It's not a huge discount, but I don't think it's a bad price for a bigger toy.

Crockpot 5-qt. Slow Cooker (reg. $29.98), Farberware 2-slice Toaster (reg. $17.88), & BHG 21-piece Mix & Measure Set, all on sale for $9.72 each // Holy hot deals! If you're looking for some great small kitchen appliance bargains, Walmart's got you covered. I'm swooning over that Better Homes & Gardens Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl Set -- 4 mixing bowls with lids, 4 prep bowls, 4 measuring spoons, 4 measuring cups, and a colander for under $10? Did I mention it comes in copper? I'll take two, thanks. I'm sure we all have a wedding or two coming  up this spring, so why not snag some great presents to stash away until the time comes? In addition to a ridiculously cheap Crockpot brand slow cooker and a great 2 slice toaster with specific settings for bagels/defrost/reheat/etc, you can also grab a deep fryer, a coffee maker, a rice cooker, a griddle and a blender for that same $9.72 price!

Child of Mine by Carter's Fleece Sleepers (reg. $7.44, on sale for $4.75) // I love these fleece footie PJs for my little girl in the winter months. They are so cozy and I don't have to worry about her losing her socks during the night. If you love Carter's you'll love Child of Mine at Walmart (and Just One You @ Target) because they're owned and created by Carter's! The clothes tend to be the same or similar quality and often even very similar styles/prints! Can't beat pajamas for under $5!

Emerson 50" 1080p 60Hz Class LED HDTV (reg. $398, on sale for $269) // I'm not one to go out and spend crazy amounts of money on electronics like TVs...they're all the same to me. My husband, not so much. He's been wanting a larger screen, and while I'm not opposed to the idea, I don't feel like any of the TVs in this year's Black Friday ads are really worth running in at 6pm for. Sure, if you're already getting one $100+ off would be great, but at only 32% off, it's just not worth the fight to me. However, this TV is one of the better priced deals I've found (at least for the TVs we're in the market for) and I'll totally try to grab one at this price if it pops up online ;)

**Update: I just saw that Walmart has the same board games as Toys R Us for even cheaper! $4.88/game vs the $7 TRU price.**


Nate Berkus Bath Towels (reg. $9.99, on sale for $7 each) // Nate Berkus makes some cute home decor, and his bath towels are no exception. They're great quality (don't fall for the Room Essentials $2 towel deal...we use those towels on our dog now) and they come in lots of colors and patterns. This price is for the bath towel only, but the ad does say all other Nate Berkus coordinating towels and rugs are on sale as well.

Westinghouse 55" Class 1080p 60Hz Flat Panel LED TV HD (reg. $599.99, on sale for $249.99) // This is easily the best Black Friday I've seen yet. A much better deal than the above Walmart ad, and a slightly bigger screen to boot! My parents have a Westinghouse TV and it is great, so I just may have to convince the hubs to brave Target this year!

CHI Air Classic Tourmaline Ceramic 1" Flat Iron with Bonus Brush & Mini Dryer (reg. $99.99, on sale for $79.99) // While this is one of the lower percentage off deals, CHI's rarely go on sale and when they do, they don't last long! I've had luck finding them discounted at TJ Maxx, but the variety is slim to none and you really have to watch the prices (they really inflate their "compare to" price). I have always loved CHI flat irons the very best (though I am enjoying my Nume silhouette right now), so I'd love a chance to try their hair dryer as well! This is a great set for a great price, and who doesn't love that adorable gold pattern?

KitchenAid Ultra Power Stand Mixer (reg. $299.99, on sale for $249.99 + receive a $20 gift card = $229.99) // KitchenAid stand mixers are such a dream. I love all the gorgeous color options, but hate the hefty price tag. This Black Friday deal makes it less of a splurge, especially with a $20 gift card thrown in!

Fisher-Price Laugh n' Learn Puppy & Pals Learning Table (reg. $39.99, on sale for $23.99) // Another cute table toy option! I'm not sure of the difference in quality/features between the two, but I do have more experience with Fisher-Price toys than VTech and have always liked them. The price point is about the same, but this one is a slightly better deal.

A few more deals:

All clothing, boots & accessories are 40% off (including men's, women's, kid's and baby). I've seen similar deals on their clothing and accessories throughout the year, but not usually all departments at once and very rarely on shoes!

All jar candles and picture frames are 50% off! I love to stock up on my favorite winter scents since I burn them year round. Picture frames are getting more and more expensive these days, so I can't wait to see what kind of deals I can score!

On Saturday (November 28) only, receive $50 off any Holiday purchase of $100 or more. That's up to half off all your holiday goods! Includes trees, lights, gift wrap, stockings, ornaments and more.

**Don't forget to use your REDCard for maximum savings this Friday!**

A few other deals I'm loving:

Carter's: 60% off the entire store (online too)! This only happens once a year. and with 2 babies to buy for, I want to save as much as possible on these quickly outgrown clothes!

Kohl's: You can still receive 60% Carter's clothing for kids and toddler at Kohl's! Perfect if you don't have a Carter's near by and want to try on. $7.99 small kitchen appliances, including a 4 qt Crockpot slow cooker, single serve coffee maker, waffle maker, electric griddle, and 12 cup coffee maker! You can save even more on kitchen and home decor, Christmas decor and bed & bath items this Friday as well. Plus, receive $15 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent!

Sephora: I can only see the preview but so far, these $10 gift set deals are looking good! There's a Tarte Fanciful Favorites Deluxe Discovery Set, Too Faced Sexy Lids & Lashes Set, Sephora Face Mask Explorer Set, and more all for only $10/set!

What Black Friday deals are you looking forward to this year? Any amazing bargains I missed?! Let me know!
