I love shopping and I definitely love a good deal. This year was the first year I'd ever hit up the Black Friday sales and I thought for sure we'd be going around 6 or 7am on Friday.
My crazy family decided to load up and hit the stores at 10pm! Can you believe some of these shops that open anywhere from 3-6pm on Thanksgiving Day? I wasn't planning to shop at all on Thanksgiving but we had an early dinner and all agreed to go. We found some awesome deals, though, so I'm glad we went when we did.
We only hit up 2 stores but I found most of the things I had on my list so that's a bonus. Here's a little round up of everything we snagged!
Shark Navigator Liftaway Professional Vacuum, $98 (reg. $199) // This was our number one item and we weren't really sure what brand we wanted, but we knew we needed a vacuum that would last and had good suction. My mom, grandma and sister-in-law all have similar Shark vacuums that they love so when we saw this one for less than $100 we thought we'd give it a try. I haven't vacuumed the whole house with it yet, but I did test out a small patch of carpet the day we got home and holy cow! I'm disgusted by how little our old vacuum was getting! We vacuumed right before we left, too. So glad we decided to invest in a new one!!!
Westinghouse 50" LED Smart 4K Ultra HD TV, $249.99 (reg. $429.99) // We really wanted one of the 55" TV's that were only $270 at Walmart, but my husband got a Best Buy email for early access to some of their Black Friday deals and we ended up snagging this one instead of fighting crowds at 6pm. Still a great TV and we're excited to get it all set up!
Bella Dual Brew Single Cup Coffee Maker, $19.99 (after mail-in rebate, reg. $49.99) // I've been in the market for a coffee maker for awhile now and couldn't justify the $100+ price tags on many of the K-Cup compatible machines out there. I love the idea of having Starbucks at home, so I was thrilled to see this Bella brand maker at such a great price! Even better, it's single serve which is perfect for us as my hubby prefers to use his french press in the mornings.
Contigo Travel Coffee Mugs, $9 (reg. $19) // Preston loves these Contigo brand travel thermoses for his morning coffee at the office. He says they keep his drink hot for several hours and they're a great size that fits in his car's cup holder which is a big deal. We saw a 4-pack for less than $10 (individually, they're $10 per cup!) so of course we threw them in the cart.
Waffle Weave Crewneck Sweater, $9.99 (reg. $40) // I wasn't looking for clothes on Black Friday, I promise! But when Kohl's offers you $15 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent and has solid deals on sweaters, you snag them up! I came home with this cozy taupe color that I think will look super cute with white denim this winter. I would have picked up the beautiful burgundy shade, too, but they were out of smalls! :( #storyofmylife
Textured Long Cardigan, $19.99 (reg. $54) // The gorgeous camel color I purchased doesn't seem to be available online, but this under $20 cardi was a steal and totally soft! I love the ribbed texture and longline cut, plus it's not too heavy so I never feel overheated.
Chevron Bath Rug, $9.99 (reg. 49.99) // Our master bathroom has a shower only and the curtain was letting out a ton of water every time we showered. Unfortunately, it ruined our old bath mat so I needed to pick up a new one. This light blue chevron looks adorable with my grey chevron curtain and is making me antsy to get the walls painted in a similar mint hue.
Monogram Hand Towel, $2.99 (reg. $9.99 ) // Totally not a necessity, but a price I couldn't pass up and it looks precious in our hall bath. That room has a mint + grey color scheme as well, so this towel looks fresh and cohesive with the rest of the theme.
Holiday Memories Sugar Cookie Candles, $3.99 (reg. $11.99) // This is so silly, but my brother and now sister-in-law got me a sugar cookie candle from Kohl's last year that was the most amazing scented candle I've ever burned. I love me some BBW 3 Wicks, but this single wick flame filled my house in seconds and the scent was so delicious I think I burned the whole candle in just a week or two! They're often only $5.99 on sale, but when I saw them again this year in the Black Friday ad for $3.99 I knew I needed to stock up. I ended up coming home with 3 more 17.5oz candles. I probably should have bought more. #regret
Movies: Deadpool, $3.96 (reg. $29.98); Wizard of Oz, $1.96 (reg. $10.47), Lord of the Rings Trilogy BluRay Set, $9.96 (reg. $24.98) // I always scour the Walmart movie deals around Black Friday but this year I was pretty disappointed. Last year we went on like, Saturday and found tons of great flicks but this year we went on Black Friday and found almost nothing! Maybe they put out more stock after the rush? Anyway, we came home with a few favorites which was at least worth our time and me having to step over a lady who had parked herself cross legged on the floor in the middle of the aisle to dig through the DVDs! Crazy.
So I think that's everything we snagged! Did you hit up any Black Friday sales or just wait for the Cyber Monday deals? What did you score?
