It's almost Thanksgiving! Which means Black Friday 2017 is just a few days away!

Even though I don't have anything on my 'Need to buy'  list this year, I'm still really excited to go out in the middle of the night with my mom and friends to do some serious shopping. 


We're trying to cut back on the toys for our girls (seriously... we have way too much stuff crowding our house) and are wanting to provide them with useful gifts this year.

We're thinking clothes, books, puzzles, games and experiences.

But there's also some things we've been adding to our lists!

I've rounded up some of my stops for this Black Friday and decided to share them with you in case you were needing some fresh ideas!


Let's get to shopping!


The first item on our big kid Christmas list is a new TV for our back patio.


We've spent a lot of time out there this fall watching football and enjoying the cooler weather and a fire in the chiminea. We've got a 42 inch out there right now, but it's several years old, and the screen is starting to go. We've been eyeing the 55' TV at Wal-Mart, it's only $298, which is a great price, especially for a TV that will spend most of it's time outdoors.

This is one we plan on getting line for early, and we may not even get it, but it's worth a shot, right?

While we're there, we'll look for this RCA Soundbar for our living room.

Another one of my go-to stores is always Kohl's.

Not only will they have competitive pricing on items like TVs and other tech, but they always have incredible deals on clothes and shoes. PLUS, they have a great cash back program. During their Black Friday promotion you can earn $15 Kohl's cash for every $50 you spend! I can get clothes for everyone in the family there, and although I will usually spend $200+ dollars, I will get $60 cash back to use at Kohl's at a later date!



We will usually round out our trip with a stop at Target, and depending on what the guys have asked for, Bass Pro.


But let's not forget about the savings you can get online!

Two years ago while I stood in line for a TV to purchase as a gift for my parents, I was busy on my tablet snagging some great deals. Talk about multi-tasking!

Old Navy had a killer sale and I was able to buy Claire several outfits, some athletic wear for myself, and some other items with an average savings of 40%!

While Amazon's special pricing is mostly reserved for Prime Day, they do offer some really good deals, especially on their flagship products like the Kindle and the Fire. You can shop them here.

Here are a few other items I've got my eye on:

These adorable matching PJ’s for the girsl to wear Christmas morning from Macy’s. Take 20% off Black Friday with code HURRY (Valid 11/22 – 11/25)

Do I need a new bed set? No. But this Kate Spade design is begging for me to buy it so… who knows! You can get up to 60% off during the Saks Thanksgiving Sale!

Claire a pair of Nike Free Running Shoes. You can use code EPIC25 to save an additional 25% off sale styles.

But what about other great deals that make great gifts?

You've heard of Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, and Cyber Monday... but what about Travel Tuesday?

If you're looking to get a great deal on Holiday travel, Tuesday the 28th will be your best bet. You can find roundtrip airfare for up to 40% off destinations all over the world! Check out the research and data here, and make sure to mark your calendar to check for cheap airfare and hotel deals!
