I'm not the BIGGEST fan of Black Friday because it causes me anxiety but I can't help and hunt down some amazing deals! Almost every store will be having incredible sales. I'm only going to a few stores and try to control my spending. Key word TRY. These are some stores I'll be hitting up and some of the sales I hope to catch!
Most places will be opening around 8 pm on Thanksgiving day. If you're in retail my heart goes out to you. I was in retail for a while and once during a black friday. It sucks. You don't get to spend the entire time with the family, go shopping, or have a good night's sleep. To top it off you get to be on your feet all day. I'm sorry.
I'll be hunting down some baby clothes (not for me) and robes and such for holiday gifts.
JCP Salon is going to have all their shampoos and conditioners 50% OFF! I will try to snatch up some of my high end favorites like Redken. Also their salon will have OPI nail polishes are BOGO $1.
I'm going there specifically for their sweaters and cardigans. They had so many cute ones this year! Normally I go to the mall, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, or online to do all my clothing shopping but I couldn't help but mentally put like...10 sweaters on my imaginary wishlist. I noticed them while doing some last minute thanksgiving food shopping yeterday! MOST of them are already 40% OFF right now but I was clenching my fists and thinking of what a great deal I might get on black friday lol! It was so hard to walk away because they were already at such a low price. Hopefully I can pick up some up along with cute scarves too!
Sally Beauty Supply
$5 off $20. It's not that great but it's something. I purchase my hair dyes, Clairol Shimmer Lights shampoo, and occasionally hair styling tools from there.
They will have an assortment of products for only $10! It includes items like MUFE eyeshadows, Stila eyeshadow palettes, and what I'm hoping to get Philosophy Purity cleanser which normally sells for $26.
All the stores mentioned above are in a strip mall for me. I'm afraid of the real mall on Black Friday but if I do go here's what I will be stopping by:
Bath & Body Works
The Body Shop
We shall see. I know it's not much but I don't really need much of anything right now. I'm a recovering shopaholic. I try to usually get things that I can use for years to come now so I'm stocking up for later and getting some gifts here and there. It all depends on how much of a carb coma I'll be in after Thanksgiving dinner and how many amaretto soaked cherries I'll be indulging in. Don't judge me.
